Bob-ette’s Feast

2003

A charity dinner held at the Mattress Factory is filmed according to the conventions of reality television.

This play is a reflection on the (im)possibility of accepting diversity and the other. The fragmented body of the neoplasm—the fruit of unstable conditions—overcomes barriers, loves and denies itself and others, wanders around, forgetting its profession. It frequently and with pleasure divides, goes through dangerous palpation, questions the possibility of contact with the experience of the other. Poorly brought up but very successful, it invites us to a trans-species transition.

Bob Sendall is a chef and a party planner. A charity dinner held at the Mattress Factory is filmed according to the conventions of reality television. The diners, treated as celebrities, are subjected to the indifferent scrutiny of the camera even at the most intimate moments of eating and drinking. The tawdry debris of the event, dead flowers, empty wine glasses, and discarded napkins are reconfigured as token evidence of the event. Video, by contrast, documents the glamour of the occasion.
