FOOD (può contenere tracce di…) is Protein and Marche Teatro‘s remounted Italian version of May Contain Food May Contain You.
Have you ever been swayed by the packaging of a new, organic product? Is it better to buy locally? Or maybe you should you be a vegetarian?
Guests are invited to bring a dish and sit at decorated tables whilst their charming and multi-talented hosts for the evening win your affections, with a playful mix of dance, song and humour.
