In the lead-up to the Lancaster performance of Dinner With America, Rajni delivers a free participatory experience taking place in St Nicholas' Arcade in the centre of Lancaster. Drawing on Shah's ongoing research into gift-giving as intervention in public space, this interactive performance takes place in busy communal areas. Passers-by are greeted by a large dinner table, where other members of the public are seated. Newcomers are invited to take part by accepting a gift, entering into a relationship with the gathering for as long or as short a time as they choose.
