There was a huge void in the alternative festival scene with the departure of Whartscape. Thankfully, the annual Transmodern Festival (it’s been around for almost a decade) picked up the banner of awesomeness and waved it around proudly.
This year, fest goers are in for a treat. Performance artist Rebecca Nagle and crew have organized a food-based performance piece called F.E.A.S.T, which is “an original evening of truly unique dining and entertainment. Over an 8-coursed meal, each artist has prepared a conceptually connected performance, dish, and service to give every guest a complete sensory experience. Come to witness the birth of spring asparagus. Drink from the breasts of painted beasts. Feast at the sprawling 100-person table-stage. Find your way out of an after-dinner entrapMINT. Participate in a cake toss. Eat a dish smaller than your thumbnail and much, much more.”

The three day event is city-wide and there’s too much to list here, so check out THIS link for info.

Current Space at 421 N. Howard St., The 14Karat Cabaret, D:Center@MAP at 218 W.Saratoga Street, in Tyson Alley between Franklin and Saratoga Streets and at the Baltimore’s Farmers Market & Bazaar at Holliday and Saratoga Streets!
