Home Planet The Food Telescope

All food tells a story – what is yours?

Friends of Isona invite you to reflect on everyday habits, food choices and their impacts on the global ecosystem in a meeting with a new culture.

You are invited to take part in an intimate gathering of sharing food and reflecting on how it relates to identity and culture. From this gentle, safe space we want to zoom out and ask how our food choices impact the larger ecological systems that surround us. Each morsel of food could tell many stories. Join us in imagining what these stories might be.

The Food Telescope is a chamber event taking place during the performance and living installation Home Planet, providing a scheduled meeting between the People of Earth and the travellers from the planet of Isona. The travellers from Isona are played by a group of people who are participating in the full performance, living in a building in the centre of Oslo four days in October, exploring the city and culture of Oslo. Buying a ticket for the chamber event The Food Telescope will also give you the opportunity to visit the Isonian’s base location.

Participation does not require any preparation, and you will learn everything you need to know in order to participate after arriving on the location. You don’t have to perform in front of an audience, but you (and other participants) are an integral part of the chamber event and will be asked to embody yourself, a person from the Earth.

The creators behind The Food Telescope are James Harper and Åslaug Asgeirsdatter Ullerud.

Friday 18 Ocktober, 14:30-16:30. Buy ticket.
Saturday 19 October, 14:30-16:30. Buy ticket.

The event might be photographed/filmed for public use.
