"Comer com os Olhos" is a new creation by Giacomo Scalisi (director) and Rosário Pinheiro (chef), with an original text by Afonso Cruz. It's a theatre show that, in dialogue with cinema, explores the dramaturgical dimension of cooking and the rituals related to the act of eating...
In the history of cinema, there are many works that use food as a motif for dramatic action, creating certain sensations on the screen, which this show aims to transport and extend into the live dimension.
"Comer com os Olhos" is cooked around a kitchen and an ever-present cinema screen, with the help of the film "Tampopo" by the Japanese director Jûzô Itami (1985). Throughout the show, Afonso Cruz's text leads us to discover the different relationships people have with food and its ingredients.
An experience between the projected image and the creation of live theatrical situations in real time, inviting the audience to immerse themselves in a narrative that proposes a short-circuit between theatre, cinema and gastronomy.
