Over the last few season we’ve enjoyed the work of a sequence of dance theatre-makers. Shaun Parker, Brian Lucas, Scott Graham and Steven Hoggett from Frantic Assembly and Garry Stewart from the Australian Dance Theatre have all shone in our space. Food brought Kate Champion’s sensual, eloquent work into our orbit, in a production of Steve Rodgers’ delicious play that felt as Australian as a Chiko Roll or Turkish Delight.

The critics said:

...there’s not a missed beat in the playing; focused, playful, satisfying and as silky and smooth as a stream of dark chocolate....I found the smorgasbord of theatricality perfectly in sync with what I think lies at the heart of this play: the notion that opening your mind and heart to change can lead to all sorts of wonderful surprises and marvellous opportunities. - Green Room

This extraordinary comedy is entertaining, thought-provoking theatre. The title suggests nothing of the sentient depths depicted. All senses are explored to produce sensuality and eroticism. Then there is the delicate interface of two quite different cultures, which results in the climax, and generates much of the laughter... With charm, wit and oozing sex appeal... This Food is a feast of sensations. - Stage Whispers

Food is a delicious piece of theatre...Warm, substantial, and completely delicious. I recommend this play unreservedly. - Australian Stage
