With stories told through dance, text and video, Our Daily Bread celebrates what we eat and illuminates the culture that underlies our eating practices. It is a performance experience that honors individual food legacies and engages all of the senses. This collaboration between Amara Tabor-Smith’s Deep Waters Dance Theater, director Ellen Sebastian Chang and visual artist Lauren Elder will delve into the folklore and stories surrounding our food traditions to examine how these traditions are impacted by industrialized agriculture, fast food culture and our global food crisis. Our Daily Bread is both disquieting and celebratory – provoking and challenging the audience to examine their own food practices and the subsequent effects, both, physical and environmental; positive and negative. Are our food traditions supporting our well being or making us sick? Why are lower income communities of color and the farm workers themselves often missing from “the table” of the sustainable food movement? At once nostalgic, affirming, alarming and delicious, Our Daily Bread promises to stimulate the mouth and the mind.
