So, the Melbourne Food and Wine Fest is up and running this coming weekend. The performance arm of TheWaterGroup will be staging guerrilla actions on Queensbridge Square throughout the weekend. Why bodies, water, Food and Wine?–Think: bread and water, loaves and fishes…bodies of water; nourishment; water and whine… .
Why do we leave the body and its feisty sensitivities to a handful of dancers? Surely, the body lives, breathes, eats, processes the whole gamut of our meaning-making in the world. Feasts and festivities, ironies and rebellions… In this land of plenty, UWPG will launch a sustained sensory engagement with Melburnites out for a feast (and a bit of gentle provocation) on the shores of the Yarra this weekend.
