Autobiographical Stories of the Tummy

Have you got a story about the best BBQ ever? The finest camping one pot wonder? Or perhaps your first taste of a new dish when travelling? 

For many, food conjures memories – a picnic eaten in the Adelaide Hills or a gelato savoured in Rome. Following the success of her 2017 Tropical Kitchen program at Darwin Festival, performance artist Jamie Lewis returns for a second year as a resident artist at ACCOMPLICE.

Inspired by the cultural and political stories around food – genealogy, ethical food sourcing, heritage and tradition – Lewis creates and performs works that are centered around stories, conversation and food. Using personal memories of food as a starting point, Lewis teaches the skills and techniques of autobiographical storytelling – helping you to examine and tell your own stories. 

“Stories are at the heart of Darwin and I am excited to create creative opportunities for locals to reflect, create and share their yarn with their community,” she says.

With Top Enders' love affairs with food combined with the art of auto-biographical storytelling, there’s sure to be some memorable tales coming out of this delicious workshop.
