We Are What We Eat is about YOU, the food you eat, where it comes from, what it means to you, and how you prepare it and share it. A collaboration between NEW ART and the Community Food Bank, the project uses modern dance and community stories to reveal how food connects us to each other, our environment, and our everyday lives. Community stories and experiences will be shared, gathered, and interpreted through dance in a series of public workshops and performances. A culminating performance will be held Sunday, April 27 at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
The project is one in a series of Community Food Bank endeavors utilizing the arts to educate people about their responsibilities as eaters who use and depend on the food system. Future projects will include digital storytelling, large-scale public art, literary arts, photography, and music.
We Are What We Eat is supported by the Tucson Pima Arts Council, the Punch Woods Endowment Fund, the Community Food Bank, NEW ARTiculations Dance Theatre and the DanceLoft.
