Exploring Fanny (working title)

Brought about by a strong, shared interest in the repulsive and grotesque within food and performance, this research will inform and direct a new project/body of work by Olivia Winteringham and Kaye Winwood.

Starting with the formidable character of Fanny Craddock, Olivia and Kaye will look at how issues of gender, domesticity and repulsion can be brought together in performance to evoke the grotesque. Using exaggerated character traits and costume they will R&D a ‘host’ to create a participatory food-led performance set in domestic environments, cafes/restaurants.

They will explore food as an artistic medium and look at how foodstuff, combined with performance, can embody disgust and distaste with a live audience to provoke strong, physical and emotional reactions in the audience/participants.
