Riot Rye are the Spring food producers working with dancer Rita Marcalo on a project connecting dance and food growing. This new dance and food activism project examines our connection with nature, our role within our food system and highlights a need to reconnect with our bodies and with the Earth in a sustainable way.
Over 8 sessions in April and May 2021, Rita will learn how to mill Irish grain to make flour, ferment the flour to create a sourdough starter, blend different flours in order to create a nutritious loaf, bake a sourdough loaf at home, build an open fire and bake on it.
Rita will learn about the industrialisation of food production and its effects on people and the planet and how to regenerate a resilient food culture by feeding her family, friends and community.
… As If Trying Not To Own The Earth is co-commissioned by Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival and Dublin Dance Festival, in association with SIRIUS. Supported by Dublin City Council Arts Office. Additional support by Cloughjordan Community Farm.
An Instant Dissidence production.
