Real Institute present ‘Bwyd Sonique’ Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 October Cardiff

Sound: Simon Proffitt

Food: Karine Décorne

Bwyd Sonique is a series of multi-sensory improvised performances for small audiences that will nourish, entertain and enlighten: an experience that audience members see, hear, smell, touch and taste… Each performance is intimate and personalised. Karine will create delicious, mouth-watering food and drink whilst Simon will process and amplify the sounds of cooking via microphones and digital audio software, uncovering the hidden musicality of the kitchen: the steady and insistent rhythm of stirring, the drones and hisses of heat-on-pan, the chatter and bubble of boiling water. At the end of each performance, audience members will be given the food – their consumption of the materials completes the performance.

Bwyd Sonique will be performed at the following times on all three days of the Festival – apart from Saturday – as performances start at 2pm.











Places are limited to four per performance and you must book in advance. To book a place please contact Lauren at the Festival Office at:
