Journeys of Love and More Love
a live installation with edible interludes
Journeys of Love and More Love is the story of a man - and many men - the milestones in his life journey and the key people that influenced his development across continents and in between social and cultural divides.
The show is a 1hour performance mixing projected media and three-course meal as a live installation. The story is the personal tale of Ali Zaidi's migration journeys from Bombay to Lahore to London chronicling the loves and lives of his friends and family and the food he encountered along the way. It intersperses personal and public archive images and historical events with interview footage of contemporary migrant stories in Naples and London, ranging from academics to street-sellers, business entrepreneurs to illegal workers.
What Italian press has to say...
Directed with tender grace and an ironic take on memories food becomes a testament of love! A grandiose kaleidoscope cross pollinated with cultures, gestures, images, tastes and colours. Giulio Baffi La Repubblica
It's not only a show. It is a true theatrical experience. Enrica Buongiorno Roma
Food is used as a vehicle that brings down socio-cultural barriers. Adriana Pollice Il Manifesto
