Unitarian Church, Santa Monica, California

Commissioned by the city of Santa Monica, Church of Food incorporated odors and cooking into choreography to reflect issues of obsession, excess, and desire. Set in a church with a stove, the piece followed the episodic progression of a church service while employing movements from housework, religion, and romantic relationships. A pas de deux with dinner trays, a sermon with a large carrot, and a duet with baguette all make appearances.
