In 2005, BITES debuted world-wide in London. In 2008 premieres followed in Rome and Berlin.
BITES is a surreal and poetic play, depicting the life of minorities and the human rights issues they raise. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic restaurant, where the actors play the roles of hostesses, chefs and waiters. They never leave the stage and their roles change from course to course, but there is a thin, connecting line linking all of the episodes and characters together. The restaurant itself is a haunted setting, a place in ruins, reminiscent of an already-devoured banquet, an almost lunar landscape consisting of decades of decomposing leftovers. The play is served up in the form of a seven-course meal, each course telling a story from Afghanistan to Texas, passing through Guantanamo. The integrity of the lyric poetry mixed with pungent sarcasm unites the seven courses into one big feast.
