My dinner with toxic dreams

“My dinner with toxic dreams” serves as the closing chapter of our ongoing theatre cycle. The idea is to finish with an intimate dinner with a small number of audience/participants in a non theatrical setting. Using the structure of the film “My dinner with André” by Louis Malle, we conduct a dinner/talk around our finding concerning the theatre cycle; but also talk about our personal journey and our take on theatre today. Formally speaking “My dinner with toxic dreams” is also about the theatre of the 60s, its success and failure, its influence on performance art today and the way the relation to audience participation changed the way we view spectatorship nowadays.
