A Folded Storm

Immersive Dinner Performance by Lital Dotan

A dinner of fragility for twelve participants

In her ongoing investigation of the everyday and the immersion of performance acts within daily routine, Lital Dotan initiates a series of seven course dinner performances. The dinner, made of edible textual images and served in singular porcelain sculptures, is an attempt to create a performance that engages the audience in the most primary manner while humouring traditional assumptions in performance art. Inspired by a variety of ceremonial traditions (from the Jewish “Seder” to the Japanese tea ceremony), Dotan wishes to create a dinner that “tells itself” and becomes its own tradition: a repeated-and-singular, perishable-and-sustainable everyday art act. 

Folded Storm is the third in an ongoing series of transformations of the everyday that take on the basic needs to human survival- eating, sleeping, getting dressed. Previous performances dealt with actions such as sleeping (when Dotan offered her own bed as an immersive overnight sleeping performance) and dressing (when she launched a fashion label based on one-to-one dressmaking performances named Que sal mah).
