Join award-winning company Protein for a highly entertaining evening with friends and family. Transforming the AMATA Arts Centre into a restaurant, you are invited to bring a dish to share whilst you sit at decorated tables to watch, savor and digest a playful mix of dance, theatre and song that unfolds around you.
 

Your charming, multi-talented hosts will win your affections with dance and humorous monologues. With interludes including baking a cake and trying your luck in a raffle, this sumptuous gathering promises to make you smile and enjoy the curious relationship we all have with food.

“…lip-smacking fusion of song, dance, mime and sweet aperitif tomatoes.” ★★★★
The Guardian

“It brings a whole new meaning to the term: ‘supper theatre’…a yummy night out!”
★★★★The Stage
 
"An absorbing smorgasbord of food-related ideas and issues, containing humour, pathos and sensuality."
★★★★Dance Tabs 4
