UN Cantine at La Générale

Last Thursday The Eroles Project organised an immersive performance in which the participants, representing the role of certain nation, company or lobby had to cook together a dinner. Each participant contributed to the dinner with an ingredient and had to play hard on negotiations and navigate through the power relations that immediately emerged.
