In Greek mythology, Odysseus is nearly devoured multiple times over the course of his long journey, but what did he eat? And If You Lose Your Way, Or, A Food Odyssey is an interdisciplinary performance combining theater and culinary arts, retelling the tale of the famed wanderer and his wife, Penelope, through food. This version of the epic begins in ancient Greece and ends in the present, using food as the link between the separated couple and serving a few allegories about our own relationships to eating. Expect an interactive experience: Performers break the fourth wall to share their own thoughts on food through games and original music. Director Pirronne Yousefzadeh notes that both gathering for a meal and witnessing the production of a play are ways of forging community; aptly, A Food Odyssey culminates in a meal shared by actors and theatergoers. But be forewarned: Eating the pork might make you a cannibal.
