The Don Effect 

click to enlarge events_rec-1.jpg

New Orleanians would likely find a connection between food and dance, as the two often happen in concurrence in local culture. Goat in the Road Productions found another link between the two in its interactive dance-theater piece The Don Effect (pictured), which was performed at the Candle Factory in June. The show's characters struggle to recreate things — for some, it's the choreography of a dance; for the others it's recipes that have sentimental value. The characters discover the elusive, emotion-based variables that make the replication of those things difficult — if not impossible. Goat in the Road collaborated with the Southern Food & Beverage Museum to create a museum exhibit exploring similar themes. The exhibit consists of recipes submitted by show audiences, as well as video footage and set pieces from the show. The opening reception features food, a bar and excerpts from the production. Admission $10, includes museum entrance. — Lauren LaBorde
