A Taste of Empire – July 6 – 24

Taste of Empire 001

The Cahoots Theatre Company Presents the World Premiere of A Taste of Empire – Everything we eat tells a story –

While cooking a traditional Filipino dish in real time, writer/performer Jovanni Sy weaves historical stories of conquest, imperialistic desires and colonialism through the construction (and deconstruction) of the Rellenong Bangus.

This dynamic production in a professional kitchen performance space enables audiences to experience tantalizing aromas and delicious hors d’oeuvres.  A Taste of Empire is truly a feast for the mind and the palate.

Cahoots is excited to close it’s season with the World Premiere of A Taste of Empire, stated Nina Lee Aquino, Artistic Director of Cahoots Theatre Company.  “We have stuck to our strong tradition of breaking political ground and redefining theatre in every sense.”  Taste is unapologetic in the questions it asks:  What is the price we pay for every bite we take?”
