The Omnivore’s Dilemma
|Event||The Omnivore’s Dilemma|
|When||Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at 8:00pm|
|Where||Davis Performing Arts Center Devine Studio Theatre|
|Ticket/RSVP||This event requires a ticket or RSVP|
Based on the book by Michael Pollan
Written, Conceived, and Directed by Natsu Onoda Power
Professor Natsu Onoda Power ('Madness & Civilization,' 'Trees and Ghosts') once again brings her singular vision
as an adapter, director and designer to transform a powerful non-fiction text into an unconventional and memorable performative event. This ensemble-based stage adaptation of Michael Pollan’s best-selling book moves from the corn fields of Iowa, to a small organic farm in Virginia, to America’s dinner tables, grocery stores, and fast-food emporiums. The production engages the question: “What should we have for dinner?” — a quandary which Pollan says has confronted us since man discovered fire, and the answer to which may well determine our very survival as a species.
