the project

Foraged Feast is an ongoing interdisciplinary project which investigates the ways in which our environment feeds us aesthetically as well as literally. Rachel Alexandrou leads pop-up performative meals in unconventional spaces to take audiences out of the rote experience of a meal and into an immersive botanical feast experience.
