Only wolves and lions eat alone, you should not eat, not even a snack, on your own. [Epicurus]
Mixing cooking, performance and a good chat Only Wolves And Lions takes a fresh look at human behaviour in the pursuit of happiness. Drawing on research surrounding community, isolation and the meaning of the word crisis, Leo Kay and Unai Lopez de Armentia invite you to cook, eat and speak together. Bringing you collective action, anecdotal storytelling, and the odd philosophical musing, they host a dinner with a difference, with a live mixed soundtrack from DJ Sam.
Unfinished Business will provide a selection of ‘carbs and condiments’, however in order to enter the event you must bring one raw ingredient to contribute to the meal for 16-20 people. If you are coming with friends keep your ingredients secret!

A couple of recent reviews….
“One of the happiest moments of the international Symposium in the city of Nafpaktos” Manolis Tsipos, Live Art Symposium Organiser
“A singularly unique experience, overflowing with charm and invention, ‘Only Wolves And Lions’ is an elegant and intimately involving exploration of how as a species we spend our time together, and why. Wearing its politics lightly, it nonetheless has a lot that is serious and urgent to say about community and about survival and about what there is, in the end, which is truly valuable to us. I can’t wait to see where it goes next.” Sammy Metcalf: Organizer of Fatoria de Fuegos Festival in Vitoria, The Basque Country & Artistic Director of Sleepwalk Collective
“Having seen ‘Only Wolves and Lions’ at STK in January I was struck by the authenticity and warmth of the interaction between the performers and the audience” [Paul Warwick: Director of China Plate]
“Only Wolves And Lions’ is an important idea elegantly realised, a gathering that reflects and celebrates the communal. Remember to take some appetite.” [Tassos Stevens: Coney Theatre Company]
