Los Infantes del Castillo is set in Elephant and Castle, South London. It explores myth and culture within the traditional local and recent immigration of Latin American communities. Through a dinner ritual the artists create a hybrid performance that investigates ideas of consumption and desire. The name 'Elephant and Castle' mythically derives from a former local childrens orphanage run by a religious French Castillian Order. The orphans were known as 'Les Enfants du Castille' which through phonetic langauge became, Elephant and Castle.
