Alisa Tanaka-King: F.O.C.U.S
July 14, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm£12
You are invited to the dinner table, but this is not a dinner party. This is an invitation to be part of a transient community. A conversation. A journey of food, a sharing of stories, a connecting of dots.
F.O.C.U.S is a conceptual art project that takes place all over the world, inviting people to share in a dining and conversation experience that embodies social creative practice and sustainability.
In form, the dining experience uses traditional Japanese haute cuisine KAISEKI as it’s foundation. KAISEKI is a cooking art form that balances taste, texture, appearance in a specific sequence of small dishes. Local and seasonal ingredients are showcased, with great importance placed on balance and dining experience.
F.O.C.U.S goes back to basics:
Sharing food and stories.
The conversation is guided by the host, Alisa, who shares stories, poses questions, invites responses from the guests at the table. This shared moment creates a community amongst those attending the dinner, a brief but intimate meeting of strangers, who may never meet again, but will always be connected.
Community is born from community, and as F.O.C.U.S travels around various locations in the world, the connections extend again.
Stories are shared, understanding of other people and cultures evolves, ideas are born, and people begin to care.
