All Day Breakfast
30 January 2022
The most important meal of the day.
The most important meal of the day—a full cooked breakfast, including coffee—prepared entirely by a pair of metal poles poked through a wall.
Terrapin Puppet Theatre and Dylan Sheridan presented All Day Breakfast, a seven-hour durational performance, at Detached as part of MONA FOMA 2022. Conceived during the early days of Tasmania’s Covid-19 lockdown, the work explores the frustrations of a life lived at 1.5 metres distance. It evokes a world that is alive, but with no humans present, allowing audiences to focus on the minute tasks of every day.
‘I stayed for over an hour, unwilling to break the spell.’ – Marcus Teague, Broadsheet
An early study for All Day Breakfast, involving making orange juice, was curated into Unprecedented Times, a 2020 exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria, as part of William Kentridge’s ‘29 Long Minutes’.
