The Last Supper

A chef is invited to compose a gourmet dinner. Daisuke Yoshimoto dances with the food during a seated performance in a restaurant where audience are his guests. A restaurant dissolves into Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last supper” images filled with taste, smell, memory and gestures.

The Last Supper is a spectacle that enriches ephemeral and sensual experience of dining. In this experimental concept eating becomes much more than a physiological need and dinning becomes much more than eating food. Haute cuisine is brought into life, while Daisuke celebrates textures, flavours, scents and colours, craftily combined by a chef. The chef and the dancer are equal creators of the event. This intriguing, yet non intrusive performance is a visual and somatic food narration.
