Dinner Is Served!

Kateřina Bílková, Jan Kalivoda a kol.


Audiovisual performance artist Kateřina Bílková has created an absurdist theatre performance that was both inspired by and is a creative analysis of television reality shows. Dinner is Served! is a variation on the kind of contest in which amateur chefs invite the other contestants to their home, and the host who receives the highest evaluation goes home with a fat financial reward. Dinner is Served! is a documentary of an era, a signifi cant portion of which consists of media-manufactured reality and pre-interpreted content. The purpose of the performance is, among other things, to call attention to the creation and subliminal implanting of archetypes.
