An Immersive, Participatory Experience

Studio Mela is bringing Israel to the United States through Foodscape, a mobile art experience. From Haifa to Eilat, participants will investigate the tastes, sounds, and smells of the land of Israel— a small country with a rich and diverse ecosystem.

Foodscape invites you to examine the Holy Land and its history through transported soil, herbs, citrus and wildflowers, calling upon your senses to map and define the culinary identity of each region. Transported by van, the 10 to 60-minute, self-guided outdoor experience invites audiences of all ages to wander among 6,000 square feet of agricultural “fields.” These fields evoke the beauty and aromas of Israel while performers sow and harvest them, gathering flavors. Guests are then invited to enjoy a glass of “Gazoz,” a vintage Israeli beach treat, made from these extractions.

Bring Foodscape to your community in celebration of Israel’s 75th birthday to offer an authentic taste of the land in an entirely new way!
