About Eaten

What if your food started talking back? Meet Lionel the lion. He’s just eaten a human called Mamoru for lunch. Being very hungry, Lionel hasn’t chewed his food, so Mamoru is still alive and very well in his stomach, and now wants to say hello. A strange friendship between the eater and the eaten starts to grow. Meanwhile, Lionel’s breakfast wants to say hello... from his bottom!

Eaten invites children and grown-ups to the fascinating world of the food web. Eaten asks, what should we eat? And who should eat us?!

Eaten is the latest work from award-winning Edinburgh based performance maker and theatre designer Mamoru Iriguchi who also has a background in zoology. His works include 4D Cinema (Autopsy Award), One Man Shoe (The Place Prize Comission) and Projector/Conjector (selected: Aerwaves Spring Forward).

Directed by Eilidh MacAskill
Performed by Mamoru Iriguchi + Suzi Cunningham

12:15 2-27 August (except 7, 14, 21 Aug)
BSL-interpreted peformances: 19 & 22 Aug

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Eaten are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
