La Fura dels Baus is a Catalan theatre group that has acquired international acclaim for its unconventional use of setting, incorporation of the audience into their representations and shocking themes.
Their latest production “Degustación de Titus Andronicus” (Taste of Titus Andronicus) brings Shakespeare’s brutal tragedy to stage whilst incorporating the Culinary Arts to the performance at the direction of the prestigious Mugaritz restaurant. Two chefs cook on stage during the production, interacting with the drama and the audience which will be cirulating during the entire play, incorporating the senses of taste and smell to the dynamic representation. Finally, 28 previously selected spectators will be joining the final gory banquet where they will be invited to dine and participate in the unfolding of the tragedy.
During the week leading up to the premiere in Buenos Aires, five of the city’s top restaurants, including Hernan Gipponi Restaurant, Aramburu, Freud & Fahler, Café San Juan, and La Vineria de Gualterio will be serving a menu inspired by the play. Additionally, customers of the menu will get a 10% discount for the show on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of August in Club GEBA, Figueroa Alcorta 5575, Palermo. Tickets are available here.
