Baking for Utopia....Part theatre show, part plebiscite, and part massive bake-off.

"Democracy is the worst form of government imaginable, until you try to imagine another." - Winston Churchill

Ever tried to think of new ways of making group decisions and actually testing them out in real situations? Having your say can amount to an endurance test - of patience, fortitude, and administrative negotiation. The Slice is Right? invites you to the theatre in search of a compelling and fun approach to imagine different ways of making decisions.

Join Segue artist-in-residence Mikey Weinkove, artist, raconteur, inventor, and chat show host from The People Speak, as he takes you on a very serious quest, not for the perfect pizza, but for the pizza that pleases all the people all of the time. This innovative event puts you in charge of deciding what goes on your pizza and who get the biggest slice…And along the way discover what happens when everybody does their own thing.

An interactive live art event based on political systems that takes place around tables with kitchen action and a nosh-up. It's a mash between "The Great Australian Bake Off" and a utopian vision of future pizza!   What system creates the best pizza?

Multiple sauces, toppings, cheeses and doughs will be available including gluten free, vegan and vegetarian.

 

About the Artist –
Co -founder and senior partner of the London-based arts group, The People Speak, Mikey is an artist, raconteur, inventor, and chat show host. He is the originator of Talkaoke and has toured the world, hosting it in a huge variety of contexts from the Cabinet Office in Whitehall to out on the street in Scandinavian towns. He has developed a number of different formats for non-predetermined discussion and exchange that are central to The People Speak ethos.

His work began to evolve when he did his BA in Critical Fine Art Practice at Central Saint Martins in the '90s- coming to focus on how to articulate the collective imagination, visually, experientially and conceptually.  Mikey is a specialist in bringing diverse and unusual audiences together. He has worked with all Tate galleries, National Theatre, BFI, Royal Opera House, V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Channel 4, and many other institutions in Europe and beyond.  

The People Speak offers an extraordinarily innovative and technologically exciting approach to socially engaged public art that enables ordinary people to feel energised, excited and fully involved in the process.
