Description Programme description: 'The Performance Space's seventh conference/performance event, A Progressive Dinner is a celebration and critique of food production, preparation, cooking, eating, manners and dinner party conversation. [...] Featuring international and Australian artists, the conference will serve up a program of exhibitions, performances, talk fests and eating extravaganzas that will capture Australia's multi-flavoured culture."

Reviewer's opinion: "There were four fabulously exotic table displays to take in, each dedicated to the other senses - touch, smell, hearing and sight... Madrid-based artist's installation."
