Table Manners

Table Manners is a choreographic feast by Tony Adigun in classic Avant-Garde style exploring human relationships through our cultural connections with food and dining, with a thought-provoking social subtext. Set around, on, and underneath a long dining table, AG will invite audiences to join in the play, banter, and feasting as we turn the tables on what is assumed to be the ‘right’ way to behave in various dining contexts. The difference between us is where the beauty lies…not the threat.
