The History of Culinary Art
Megan Sukys/Dave Beck
At 2:07 p.m. - Ryan Boudinot
Seattle native Ryan Boudinot explores some of the darker, weirder, and funnier parts of life in his disconcertingly titled debut collection of stories, The Littlest Hitler. His stories feature yuppie couples pushed to the brink of madness, state-sponsored patricide, and murderous salesmen. We talk with Boudinot about what parts of our region inspired his twisted wit and dark imagination.
At 2:20 p.m. - Dinner Theater
Presented in the year 2537 as an art history lecture, Dinner Theater is a performance meditation on the history of food and flavor as an art medium. Through performance, video, live music, a series of tastings and a full meal, the audience is walked through the history of culinary art from the 6th millennium BCE to the end of the form, a time 530 years in the future when processed extruded chemical nuggets have replaced food as we know it. Dinner Theater creator Matthew Richter speaks today with Megan Sukys.
Dinner Theater, September 16th-17th and September 22nd-24th, 2006, 7:00 p.m., On the Boards Merrill Wright Mainstage Theater, 100 W Roy St (in lower Queen Anne).
