Year of Production


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.

Running time: 90 minutes with interval

“Silvestrini has given me a sensorial and participatory experience which included both sharing and meditation […] With lightness, you can access the darkest aspects of food and eating.”
