Performance: Hunt & Darton Cafe… A pop up of the pop up.
A fully functioning cafe that blends art with the everyday, Hunt & Darton Cafe is an award winning interactive, performance installation and social and artistic hub where spontaneity and performance meet great food and drink.
Hunt & Darton Cafe encourages playful participation and meaningful social encounters through the alternative service provided by legendary hosts Hunt & Darton. Wearing their iconic fruit or veg attire, Hunt & Darton ask you to lower your expectations. Expect comic interaction through their ‘set menu’ performances comprising some wise words, some ‘moves’ and a cheese and wine tasting with a twist. Hunt & Darton are proud to satisfy appetites in more ways than one.
‘A pop up establishment of disarming eccentricity’ Lyn Gardner, Guardian
Hunt & Darton are a Live Art Collaboration between Jenny Hunt and Holly Darton. They have both practiced Art since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2003 and been working together for 7 years. Approaching Live Art from a Fine Art background we work across mediums with a sculptural approach to performance, choreographing words and movement in a sensory way and setting up alternative spaces – often creating installations to perform within. Our work derives from our shared celebrations and anxieties surrounding life choices particularly as women, in Britain, now. Our work has been described as deadpan and absurd, often collapsing into humour.
