Limewharf is the latest innovation in East London's creative quarter. The Experimental Artistic Laboratory opened by Regent's Canal in Hackney at the beginning of March, and is an experimental think tank that tackles big ideas through a collaboration of art and science. The project plans a long line-up of communal experiments with stimulating exhibitions, sensual (not that kind of sensual) events, and interactive experiences. Their aim is to build positive relationships, make connections between the old and the new, and to merge the world of crafts and technology together.
Their first in a long run of experiments is called Eat The World. This unique festival of food is a salon-inspired feast will have you seated at a 'Worldscape' table, architecturally designed to mirror the world's geographic contours. As you wine & dine on food and the visually sublime, there will be musical performances by the cellist Gregor Rydell, and David Coulther who will play the Jew's harp and musical saw. The purpose of the experiment is to encourage discussion & debate and runs until the 22nd March.
There several formats to choose from. For £55, you can buy tickets for a seated dinner with drinks and entertainment, which takes place on Wednesdays & Thursdays. Fridays, on the other hand, offer a stand-up experience with canapés between £15 - £45.
