The Waldorf Project is a new art form, not simply a ‘fully immersive dining experience.’ Through 7 different courses (each consisting of a coloured cube, either ‘BLUE’, ‘ORANGE’, ‘PURPLE’, ‘RED’ or ‘GREEN’), served in 7 different environments, guests will be able to experience colour through not only all of the sense, but also through the emotions imposed by these senses.
Price-wise, tickets range from £20 (for ‘rehearsal’ editions, including all 7 courses but no wine) to £160 for the final and full package. £50 tickets will get you a rehearsal with 7 courses, 3 served with wine, and £90 the full package again, but with photographer present.
The 7 course ‘experience’ will take diners from zone to zone, experiencing colour through taste, smell, sound, light and mood. Each course will be presented by choreographed dancers within cube-shaped environments to evoke something of Turrell, whose work has been a huge influence on both the stage artists and the costume designer.
The sheer scale of the project is unquestionable: over two years of artistic development; thousands of hours of R&D spread across six different artistic disciplines; a colossal budget. The wines treasures, sourced by Rogg over months and purchased from private collectors, alone are worth more than the ticket price.
