Het Huis van Proeven/ Sandra Schouten tells stories with food and smell. She alienates situations by theatrical interventions and sensual eating experiences. She uses food and smell to meet each other, to share, to connect and to remember. Her work challenges you to look differently. To experience consciously, take a step to make a change, to get to know each other in other ways and to be meaningful together. This goes for participants of a festival and a conference or employees of a company and organization, as well as for the more vulnerable groups in our society, as people in nursing homes, people with a psychiatric past, children in a Centre for asylum or men in prison.
