How do ideas around eating choices, food as ‘protein’ and ‘being a man’ inform how men shape and feel-in their bodies?
- What makes men choose to eat what they do?
- Do we always have a choice?
- And do some kinds of protein make men 'more of a man'?
Beneath the plastic wrappers, sterile containers and consumer advertising campaigns lies the original and most essential form of consumption: eating food. A simple cycle of input and output; a bridge between things we often imagine as separate – environment and body – the worlds outside and inside.
How do we feel about what we eat?
How does what we eat make us feel?
Choreographer Joanna Young, Dancer/Choreographer Kip Johnson and Musician / Sound Artist Jamie McCarthy have come together to create a sound walk that weaves together first-hand stories of men and food with music, sound and moving. A journey through the streets of Bedminster that opens up a space for reflection – a moment or two to stop, think and feel about the every day stuff of men, their food and their bodies that we often take for granted.
Age: 14 and above
Please bear in mind the journey will last about 40 to 45 minutes both indoors and outdoors: easiest to travel light and comfortably. Audio equipment provided.
Walks at 10.30am, 12.00pm, 2.30pm and 4pm (2.30pm and 4pm walks also feature live dance performance) on Wednesday 11th and Saturday 14th. Spaces limited to six people per walk
You can also take this sound walk on your own after these dates. Please check the Man Food website for details.
