Appetites and Politics at the 17th Annual Ko Festival
(2008-07-09)
(wfcr) - We're often talking about food -- whether we've just eaten too much of a good thing, or haven't yet found the perfect recipe for a summer dinner. The topic of food can quickly become issue-oriented. Prices are rising. Millions are going hungry. The source of food is unclear to the average shopper. And a crop of tomatoes with sickening bacteria is just the latest public health scare. The pleasure and politics of food are on stage this summer at the annual "Ko Festival of Performance" (kofest.com) which offers some innovative and original theater events at Amherst College. The month long festival begins next week. Charlene Scott has this preview of a uniquely staged meal. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
