FixaPlate is an immersive theatrical experience correcting the history of a gentrifying Charlotte through the lens of a family kitchen.
Using theatre and installation art, FixaPlate participants will move through the memories of Aunt Millie surrounding her kitchen table and the history of Charlotte. FixaPlate begins with a shared meal and culminates in a community party!
Here’s a little run-down and sneak peek of what’s to come!
When you arrive at the event, you’ll be greeted by Auntie Millie on her front porch and given a handful of peas to snap for supper. When it’s time to head in, you’ll have your height marked on the doorway before being transported through time to Auntie Millie’s kitchen. Come hungry and enjoy a dinner from the Grinning Mule to set the stage for a night of immersive art. In a 90 minute experience, we will all go on a journey through the story of Auntie Millie, Charlotte and how meals all play a part in the story told. Interspersed throughout scenes of the play, audiences will visit 3 rooms that tell the story of Charlotte kitchens, food access, and gentrification through sound, paint, projections, and more.
We can’t wait to meet you!
Your Ticket Includes:
-A full dinner and dessert from the Grinning Mule.
