Cool Vancouver Dining Event: Eat the Street

Collage of images of the Eat the Street Arts Performance


From January 25 to February 4, 2012, the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival is presenting a number of contemporary performances in various locations around Vancouver. The PuSh festival is an international performing arts festival that aims to push artistic boundaries. It's about "finding that line that some are afraid to cross, and crossing it anyway."

Vancouver School Bus is happy to be helping out with some of the transportation needs of one of the contemporary performances in particular: Eat the Street. In this series, children will be taking on the roles of food critiques in live, unscripted and spontaneous performances.


Following a culinary session with a professional chef, grades five and six students from Bridgeview Elementary in Surrey will make stops at nine restaurants in Gastown and its neighboring areas. Throughout the three week festival, they will be offering their brutally honest, uncensored opinions on the food, service, décor, washrooms and even the charm of the dishwasher.

You are invited to the performance! For the cost of a meal, you'll get to sit by the kids table and enjoy a front-row view of the food judging. The public is encouraged to witness the refreshingly honest, uncensored critique of the food, service, decor, washrooms and even the dishwasher! All are welcome to stop by on these dates to watch an adolescent panel of foodies in training.

Eat the Street is produced by Mammalian Diving Reflex, a highly acclaimed Toronto-based research-art studio dedicated to investigating the social sphere. This project is based on a utopian prospect for the youth of our society — what the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child has called “a new social contract” wherein children are invited to be present as children, setting the tone and, in turn, triggering even higher levels of generosity between adults and children alike.
