INVITATION

What is an anorexic dinner?
An anorexic dinner is a ceremony for everyone. This ceremony is held to honor what food does in our lives. Texts are read, food is examined and tested and even requests are made.
The main goal of the ceremony is to create a recipe for one: meant to feed one person and at the same time be a manifesto about how modern people can connect with edible nature and regain Life in food, both individually and collectively. Feeding here means making reparation, realignment, feeding the physical and the spiritual all together.
The Recipe in the end should offer a unique opportunity for people to practice their duties as a responsible eater: mindful in relation to self and low impact responsiveness in relation to the others and the planet.
Instructions will be made clear on the spot and we will follow the proceedings of the dinner together step by spent. Food will also be served and it is up to the guests to decide if, what and how much they want to eat.
What you need to bring to an anorexic dinner
· A good mind
· Cup of water

· Do listen to one another with all of your heart, give respect and welcome everyone.

In the last years Bureau d’Espoir has been looking into different strategies to deal with the loss of control we experience in our relation to food. Global food industry, the implosion of the local food markets, health issues and ethical questions keep us occupied all the time. In response to this feeling of loss of control Bureau d’Espoir has developed Hunger artist and Anorexic strategies.

The anorexic dinners are an invitation to come and take part in the preparation and consummation of a dinner that tries to rethink the logics of our food consumption, and also make this an enjoyable experience.
