A table is set for a lavish feast.
At this sumptuous dinner party, we encounter the beauty and decadence of human existence, destined to perish.
Projecting live footage from a handheld camera, four performers lead us through parallel worlds of organic objects. Lush images, winding bodies and evocative soundscapes conjure a garden of earthly delights. Blown up on a big screen, fruit and vegetables become landscapes of epic proportions, the body is transformed, and nothing is as it first appears.
Deep Dish is a collaboration between the multi award-winning Austrian choreographer Chris Haring and French fine artist Michel Blazy. Together they have a created a stunning spectacle of Baroque opulence; bound to decay, yet ripe with renewal.
