A VoxFest 2020 Festival performance
performing via Zoom webinar; event password: VoxFest
At a luxury health facility in New Hampshire, a staff of doctors, scientists, and robots assist patients' transition to a meat-free lifestyle with the help of the Lone Star tick, a parasite whose bite causes the development of a meat allergy. Through spectacle, comedy, and a sci-fi spin, "Meat" questions our ability to create lasting change in an uncertain time.
