Smell, taste, and touch your way through this nourishing ode to joy, and let it awaken your autonomous sensory meridian responses. Choreograph the Dance of Chocolate. Savor life. Carpe diem.

See it if you are looking for an immersive and original theater experience. The entire show is in the dark, so you can't see anything.

Don't see it if you are not into experimental theater, or if you expect a traditional play with characters, storylines, etc. This show is totally sensorial.
