AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Appetite is presented as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and marks a collaboration between KAGE and playwright Ross Mueller, as well as musician Sally Seltman, better known as the indie outfit New Bullalo.

Louise is an affluent and successful woman. On the event of her 39th birthday, she cooks a feast of Dionysian proportions for her husband, sister and a small number of close friends. As the evening progresses, Louise becomes increasingly conscious of the discrepancy between her material wealth and her neglected emotional well-being, as her guests descend into a drug and alcohol fuelled exploration of excess.
