“A wonderful gratifying experience.” -The Age
A table of food tells eloquent stories … of celebration and conflict, of joy and tribulation, of colourful pasts and confounding presents.
Acrobat invites an intimate audience to share a communal meal, music and stories with jazz singer, psychologist and passionate cook David Chong. Born on the outskirts of Sydney to travelling Chinese acrobats, David grew up in a Confucian household in Brazil, returning to Australia as an adult, speaking Portuguese, Cantonese, and very little English. Acrobat is David’s personal tale of the contemporary cultural mosaic: a high-wire dance across continents on the sounds of Brazil and the aromas of the world. The song of a circus son.
Produced by the acclaimed Melbourne-based performance makers A for Atlas, Acrobat is an organic and interactive experience of shared food, memories and human histories. The event is part of the much-loved Dining Room Tales project and features live music by jazz guitarist Nathan Slater.
