FEAST: A Ballet, merges visual art and ballet to explore the long history of colonial exploitation and consumption. In five distinct movements, FEAST: a ballet combines ornate imagery, playful storytelling, and powerful movement to explore the disturbing history of colonial exploitation and its effects on the world we live in. Immersed in a lavish set of over 500 sculptural and store-bought objects, FEAST follows a corps de ballet of dancers as they navigate a world of contradictions: ruler and ruled; giver and taker; consumer and consumed; complicity and resistance. Trapped in a seemingly unbreakable cycle of one-upmanship, the dancers begin to learn the true cost of coming out on top. With choreography that juxtaposes humor and struggle, FEAST: a ballet deconstructs these complex themes and tells an easy to follow story of how it was, how it is, and how it can be.
