Dinner at the Tafel van de Idee (Table of the Idea)– Amaro and various artists. This 120 metre-long table is travelling around the world and, from 11-14 August, will form the heart of the Idea Parade. It will be used not only for eating, but also as a stage for performers and for forging plans, gathering resistance and devising ideas. This time around, it will be used by dancers, storytellers and theatre school students. Culinary adventurer André Amaro will be providing a three-course dinner.
The Idea Table is a Mobile Arts concept developed by Terts Brinkhoff and built by Piet Hein Eek.
