Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.



Feast is a meal like no other, inviting children to make gastronomical delights from a pile of most unusual ingredients.

A Feast production photo. A family sits on one side of a long rectangular table. The table has tubs on top of it, holding coloured paper, decorations and pencils. In the foreground, a pizza made from paper is placed on the table. There is a pink wall in the background behind the family. Photo: Casey Horsfield.

A long table is set with a white cloth, paper plates, and a centre piece of paper flowers. The ingredients are mise en place. Children are invited to fill their imaginations on creating the dishes of their dreams – food fit for a top restaurant, or a very hungry punter. Gradually the table starts to fill – stringy string pasta, tomato cellophane sauce with a spray of green fabric basil, paper pizza, tissue sushi. Waiters impeccably dressed in black and white hover to encourage and assist, writing up the mouth-watering menu.

This installation lets children play with materials other than food to make truly delicious, and sometimes really horrible, culinary creations.

  • It’s been a true delight and honour to have you here, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have worked with you all. The professionalism, creativity and can-do attitude of everyone involved has made this such a great activation.
