Närproducerat – cooking as dance
A dance solo performance inspired by the dynamic movements of cooking. What does everyday movements and dance have in common? In this solo, mundane actions in the kitchen are used as part of a choreography that does not stop until the food is on the table. Human in motion, music, cooking pots and steaming food form the ensemble of a domestic micro-spectacle that reflects on the greatness in the small. As an audience you are part of a small group and dinner is included in the ticket price. The menu will be prepared as vegan, but unfortunately we are not able to adapt it to other food restirictions or allergies. The performance takes place in the beautiful kitchen at Kahvila Koroinen at Korois outside Turku city center, Koroistentie 2.
