A dinner event exploring the conception of utopic communities. The premise of the dinner was that each guest was part owner of our shared land. The evening explored how communities are created and how values and ideas of utopia shape our lives.
A dinner event utilizing phenomology and paratheatrics to explore the question "How are you at home in the world?" The questions and prompts create the framework for the evening.
