Following two sold-out runs of Nourishment in Denver, CO in 2016 and Brooklyn, NY in 2017, Gwendolyn&Guests is pleased to announce their return to Denver with a premiere of their latest Nourishment production, centered around the question: what does it feel like to grow up? Nourishment will return to Denver from May 24-26th, 2018 at a historic home in the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood. Nourishment is an evening length performance experience aimed at provoking all five senses, through the collaboration of dance, live music, theater, storytelling, visual arts, set design, food and drinks.

In this chapter of Nourishment the audience is pulled into a non-linear world of aging as the cast shares experiences of what it feels like to be a child, to be a teenager, and to enter adulthood. The performance explores what dreams feel like and how reality unfolds. What does it mean to take responsibility, to fulfill expectations, and to feel disillusionment? How does this vast range of joys and struggles manifest itself within us? Is there ever a point when we stop growing up? Nourishment invites the audience to ponder these sorts of questions throughout the show while experiencing each performer’s inner world and perspective.

To further the all-sensory experience, attendees will enjoy a 6-course menu of small bites paired with wines/beer/spirits (included in ticket price).

Gwendolyn Gussman (Director, Concept, Performer)
