A catalyst for new connections
On 11th and 12th of April, artist Inês Neto dos Santos and choreographer Helen Cox collaborated for a unique evening of contemporary dance and food, bringing an innovative spin on what a dance and a meal can be, individually, or together. This event was held at and supported by arebyte Gallery.
Mesa is a project founded by dos Santos that challenges our encounters with art and creates platforms for creative conversation. It exists in the form of various eating experiences, every time in collaboration with a different artist, whose work serves as inspiration for the menu. The project explores food as a global language, seeing it as a catalyst for discussion and new connections.
5-course menu inspired by the choreography
Guests were invited to experience a dinner and a dance piece intertwined: the menu borrowed themes and aesthetics from double pendulum, interpreting them through flavours, textures and colours. This immersive, multi-sensory experience aims to introduce new audiences to contemporary arts and dance in an interesting and stimulating environment.
