good luck: a regathering is an immersive performance and act of radical hospitality in the form of a 5-course, sit-down, seed to farm to table meal to be shared with strangers and loved ones. Regathering is a response to the hunger to re/build worlds in this time of social, economic, racial, health, and ecological crises. Ushering in the Equinox and its late harvest, we will mark the ways we’ve centered distance and safety while also imagining futures of intimacy and survival. We hope for this to be an ongoing space of ritual making, feeding, and being fed.
Appropriate for ages 7+
