Liliana Dirks-Goodman: Feminist Dinner Party 1960s-2000s

Live Arts celebrates Women’s History Month with Dinner Party: 1960s-2000s, a performance installation that explores feminist history and community building through the act of sharing a meal. Set in the 2nd wave feminist movement, the work addresses trauma, body autonomy, and the erotic in an act of remembering that aims to empower participants to imagine a liberated future. The food and the table settings are designed as a riff on feminist artist, Judy Chicago’s “Dinner Party” to look at and be critical of advances in domestic life that have given women greater freedom and autonomy. Converse with the artists and other guests while dining on comfort food by chef Kristin Worrall, served on place settings designed and fabricated by Liliana Dirks-Goodman, and end the evening with guided meditation led by Regina Rocke.

Put It In Your Mouth: A Dessert Ceremony

Dessert is thought to be the luckiest of meals - especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. Its winning energy makes it a great ally for boosting one’s chances in any situation - a first date, tax audit, even landing a promotion. One needs only to be *near* dessert to derive its benefits. But we live in a world where we can't afford to leave things up to chance. So why not take an evening's opportunity to seek out your luxury? Claim your desire. Manifest your dessert destiny. Put it in your mouth.

Come out to The Living Gallery for a special RSVP-only 12-person seated 4-course Dessert Ceremony, honoring the four elements: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire. For $25 you get the 4 course dessert (with beverage). For $55 you can keep your handmade dishware. 

Dessert Ceremony 7:30-8:30. Art show and dessert a la carte to follow with wine and vibes of Friendship, Prosperity, Imagination, and Financial Succe$$.

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 9 – 730PM – LIVE BAKING SHOW – According to legend, during the Roman Empire, Saint Valentine was imprisoned and later executed for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. What would you do for love? Would you die for love? Valentine’s Day – the Feast of St. Valentine – has since evolved into a day when lovers can express their love for one another openly. One way is through dessert.

Come celebrate the holiday to commune, feast, and learn how to make Île Flottante (“Floating Islands”), a classic French dessert. Kristin will share time-tested recipes, tips, and anecdotes of love and heartbreak that you may share with your lover, your friends, or keep just for yourself. It’s an evening where the kitchen and the theater collide, prompting the question: When should we follow a recipe and when we should we break the rules?

All guests will receive dessert after the show.

Knockdown Center:

Knockdown Center is an art center and event space dedicated to unusual projects and collaborations.

The 50,000 square foot building has seen continuous use for more than 100 years: first as a glass factory, then as a door factory. It is named for the Knock-Down door frame that was invented here in 1956 by Samuel Sklar and remains an industry standard to this day. The frame could be shipped in pieces — or “knocked down” — and installed into existing walls, revolutionizing the speed and efficiency of building construction.
