Event description

Description

A meal and performance by mouthfeel (S*an D. Henry Smith and Imani Elizabeth Jackson). The collective memory and imagination of slavery is that of working fields, but what do we remember of those enslaved at sea? As captives, as fishers, as navigators and pearl divers? With recipes rooted in the oceanic and Black culinary traditions, we invite communion with these ancestors and with each other and make an offering to the Black Atlantic.

This meal contains seafood and is gluten- and nut-free. No substitutions are allowed, and allergies and dietary restrictions unfortunately cannot be accommodated.


Imani Elizabeth Jackson is a poet from Chicago working between text, performance, and food with attention to embodied ecologies, grief, and middle passage’s unfurlings. S*an D. Henry-Smith is an artist, writer, and cook working primarily in poetry, photography and performance, engaging Black experimentalisms and collaborative practices. As mouthfeel, the duo explore the entanglements of poetry, performance, ephemeral practices, and Black culinary traditions.
