Family Dinner: The Lexicon

Saturday, December 2, 2017, 8 – 10pm [image: Family Dinner: The Lexicon] Mile Zero Dance presents: Justine Chambers' "Family Dinner: The Lexicon" Family Dinner: The Lexicon is a choreographic culling of each immersive dining performance of Family Dinner, to date. While Family Dinner prioritizes what is felt over what is seen and offers a co-creation with dinner guests, Family Dinner: The Lexicon proposes choreography as a method for archiving gesture. The 227 gestures have been sourced from the people present at each dinner. The bodies of the performers are used as imperfect recording devices to hold each dinner guest in the memory of the work. Family Dinner: The Lexicon re-organizes and categorizes the inventory of dining gestures to create a living catalogue of movement.
