Dancing plates, a hiccup that moves to the foot, chatty dishes, a delicate egg dance. In the “eating concert” MUNCH!, together with the audience, we swallow, smell, enjoy, consume, nibble, listen and digest. An experimental and respectful approach to food and drink becomes a sensory experience of a special kind.

What makes us humans different from the trees in a forest? Can trees hear us? Do trees have feelings? “I am a tree” is an artificial experience of nature in which children become co-creators. The performance invites them to think together about nature and its functions. How do we live in nature, how do we imitate processes from nature? What would it be like to be a tree, an ocean or an insect? And what is it actually like to be a plastic flower?
