From West China, across ancient gardens of Afghanistan and Iran, over Roman and French orchards into the British landscape, the pear is the product of many cultures and countries.

In following its journey, we enter a discussion about who we think we are, how we have come to be, the boundaries we draw to create place and the complex relationship between place and personhood.

It could have been any food, any fruit, but here and now we choose the pear.

FEAST:PEAR is a pear dinner in six courses, with food inspired by different countries and cultures. This meal is part of a greater project, The Pear Project, which will see a long-term, North-West wide collaboration with artists, communities and organisations to plant pear orchards in this region. Through care and cultivation, these orchards will become a focal point of storytelling and performance as well as addressing the importance of growing food locally and the climate crisis.

Free, booking required

This event is part of Take Over 2022.
