Preview: The 4 Food Groups

With a dinner party of four people, four food groups and four scenes of true stories relating to sexuality, the performance possibilities intrigue. Are they couples or friends or something else?

With a dinner party of four people, four food groups and four scenes of true stories relating to sexuality, the performance possibilities intrigue. Are they couples or friends or something else? The four scenes even suggest sex: The Intro, The Prospect, The Climax and The Morning After.

Originally created at the 11th hour — i.e., the day prior to the deadline for the 2008 Cincinnati Directors Competition, where it took second place — this humor-spiked interdisciplinary performance piece features spoken word, movement and an original accordion score. Pones Inc. co-founder/co-director Kim Popa says dance is used to tell the stories through movement, but the style is natural ... or “pedestrian” in dance parlance.

Performed at Know Theatre May 30 and June 1, 3 and 5 (see map of Fringe venues here)
