Mouth of the river is a participatory performance by Ieva
Grigelionyte which invites the audience to explore Inverclyde
through their senses such as smell, taste and touch. Taking water as the main theme, the piece will look into the different ideas and
narratives we hold of the River Clyde, which continues to shape
this area and sustain the life around it.
Composed of six parts, the poetic edible journey will conceptually map out this body of water by taking the participants through a sea fog, following low and high tides, stepping down to the river bed, moving across the sea floor and surfacing at the mouth of the river. To capture this wandering, specially created flavours will be accommodated within a tasting menu of ice cream, handcrafted incense, interactive sculptural pieces and other small offerings.
Inspiration as well as flavouring ingredients will be sourced and foraged from the local area to further immerse the audience in a sensory experience rooted in this place. The features of different landscapes will be reflected in the textures and forms of the offerings, as well as the way they will be presented to the audience.
