Eating Voices is a series of interactive sound experiences that open up a new sensory dimension to your plate. Ready to come to a café, restaurant or hotel near you, bring your headphones and your appetite.
Eating is a sensory journey in itself and a social driver since always. However, the pace of urban life too often takes us away from this opportunity to connect. Eating becomes an innocuous/ trivial moment. Eating Voices is an opportunity to deepen our relationship with our food and the people around us.
The project is a collaboration with Nicolas Fonseca, with whom we developed the Food Sessions sensory banquets, which inspired this self-service version, ready to enliven any culinary destination.
The experience lasts about 15 minutes and is conducted from a telephone. Self-service listening stations are available in the food court allowing everyone to participate without using their own phone or headset.
A series of episodes were created with a multidisciplinary team including performers, composers, comedians, hypnotherapists, bringing different sensitivities and assets to experience a meal differently.
Your phone is talking to you, questioning your comfort level when eating alone in public. Don’t worry, no one is really looking at you right now.
— Voice by stand-up comedian and actor Martin Perizzolo.
Mother Nature talks about reproduction and diversity to keep life going, revealing the sexual life hidden on your plate.
— Voice by transgender comedian and artist Tranna Wintour.
— Also available in French with the voice of actress and director Anne-Marie Cadieux.
* For an adult audience
A food medium guides you through your plate’s fifth dimension. Chew, taste, swallow. It sounds so mundane, but it actually is a direct portal to the transcendental essence of all existence.
— Voice by contemporary live artist Dana Michel.
