Event Description

Bugs Bunny. Jiminy Cricket. The Beatles. Y2k. Part-performance lecture, part-intervention, part-lunch - Contentious Buffet is an experimental community hall buffet investigating food neophobia, bugs in popular culture and low carbon alternatives to food consumption. 

Bringing together local Otways producers alongside some of Melbourne’s most experimental artists, food designers and thinkers, this event will get you thinking about how it was that Apollo Bay’s famous rock lobster shifted from being a ‘sea cockroach’ into one of the world’s most expensive and sought after delicacies. 

Fusing APHIDS’ future-focused politics with Long Prawn’s culinary playfulness, the result is an unpredictable and invigorating afternoon of performance, participation and an assortment of tasty bug-snacks.

Warning: People affected adversely by shell fish might have a similar reaction to bugs. 

This event is assisted by Creative Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria
