CONVIVIUMEPULUM, Latin for “living together” and “public celebration” will bring together Venetians and guests from abroad to prepare various dishes for a culinary-discursive evening. Against the backdrop of Venice’s history, CONVIVIUMEPULUM will seek to meld foreign and local traditions, cooking, by recipe or improvised, and performing art. CONVIVIUMEPULUM is a choreographed Food‐Performance, which addresses questions on production channels and local nutritional resources and enquires into how food determines our socio-cultural and historic identity. The performance is about living together, hospitality and conversation.
