Netil House – Waldorf Project
For an unbelievable night of entertainment, plan on attending The Waldorf Project at the Netil House in London.
Between October 10-14, the global premiere of this spectacular Waldorf Project includes a stylish blend of visual arts, theatrical performance, contemporary choreography and staging, plus fine cuisine and the best rare wine available.
It’s definitely a dining and performance experience to die for as London literally takes center stage for a night to remember.
The Waldorf Project will brilliantly showcase six of the most exciting practitioners in the respective worlds of choreography, design, visual art, theatre, electronic music and gastronomy.
The driving force and director behind the creation of the Waldorf Project is British artist Sean Rogg. The result is the ideal meshing of an unique art performance with visual, aural, creative and performative arts. Topping it off is the chance to enjoy some of the world’s rarest wines and finest, delicious tasting food.
Each of the show’s collaborators was personally and carefully picked by Sean Rogg to represent an imaginative approach to the theme – the rare Japanese muskmelon. In addition they bring their readiness to break boundaries through the most fundamental fusion of their diverse disciplines.
If you are unable to attend this year’s event, be sure experience the Waldorf Project: Chapter Two which be held in the Spring of 2013.
Below is an overview of the Waldorf Project:
Set Design: Gina Geoghegan
Art Director across fields of theatre, film and brand experiences, Gina Geoghegan will transform Netil House into a 5000 square foot hydroponic fantasy land. The immersive environment will be one where the plant culture not only serves as a bewitching backdrop for the performance, but is also incorporated into the menu itself.
Choreography: Imogen Knight
Choreographer and Movement Director Imogen Knight has choreographed eight dancers who will serve guests throughout the evening. The way in which the performers interact with the plates and the space is built into the design of the environment, which itself has been inspired by the food. For The Waldorf Project Imogen has created a performance bridging the gap between naturalism and surrealism, combining darkness and humour and highlighting base human emotions with dramatic effect.
Sound Design: Walls
Winners of the coveted Mojo Electronica Album of the Year award, sound artists Alessio Natalizia and Sam Willis, known together at “Walls”, are two of the most innovative minds working in electronic music today. For the Waldorf Project the duo will create a distinct sonic backdrop for each phase of the evening, completing the multi-sensory experience.
Food Design: Andrew Stellitano and Blanch & Shock
Food design studio Blanch & Shock and gastronomy artist Andrew Stellitano have collaboratively developed the menu as a narrative in 6 courses, moving from the rustic and unprocessed to expertly stylised dishes. Each course has been put together using premium quality produce and will be presented to guests by choreographed dancers.
Wine: Sanford and Benedict
The Waldorf Project will serve fine wines provided by prior owner of legendary California winery Sanford and Benedict. These include arguably the very best two vintages of the last twenty years for the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, 1994 and 1997. Four of the wines are special collaborations with Au Bon Climat, which were never released onto the market. The wines have been tasted throughout the creation of the menu, intrinsically connecting them to the food and ensuring a perfectly synchronized pairing.
