“Private Feast” is a series of interactive participatory performances, a set up for exploring diverse cultures and practicing a collective imagination in a social environment performed with artist, Hoyun Son. Selected guests (both neighbors and other Chicagoans) who don't know most of the other guests are invited to a dinner party. Each of the guests is asked to bring a choice of food ingredient, a choice of spice, a choice of drink, and a choice of music. The artist provide variety of table settings and each of individual setting represent different culinary culture. As the guests arrive, Hoyun will guide them to decide what they can cook with the collected food ingredients and spices by sharing their own culture.
The guests are divided into a few groups to work together on different food preparations. Throughout the evening, the guests will share the food they made, and enjoy a variety of drinks, music, and diverse conversations each of them brought to the table. Some of activities may include making dessert and Korean rice wine (Makguli) together.
