Tip of the Tongue

Premiere: February 2013, Seattle

The fifth and most intimate event of the Collision Theory project was Tip of the Tongue – a dinner of exquisite bites, luscious liquids and fancifully guided encounters. The cast of Collision Theory was joined by chef Tyler Moritz (creator of La Bête restaurant), Kirby Kallas-Lewis (owner of Oola Distillery) and gifts from the wine cellar of Mr. And Mrs. Anonymous.

20 guests attended the evening, hosted at the exquisite home of Richard Hesik and Barbara Johns. Designed by renowned architect Tom Kundig, the home is sited on an iconic Northwest waterfront setting in West Seattle. Guests were served a dinner and experience that honed their senses and focused their apertures on composed arrangements of tastes, sounds, smells and visual experiences.

COLLISION THEORY was a 16-month performance project. During the project’s extended duration, Lingo invited audiences ranging from one to many to a series of interconnected Immersions – dinners, films, letters, fashion shows, visual art, music and dance. COLLISION THEORY punctuated with a Finale in April 2013 as a part of On the Boards’ season.
