LiterASIAN 2018 Closing Performance and Reading - Playwriting from Kowloon to Manila

Join us for our closing act: a short reading and performance of A Taste of Empire with Jovanni Sy. Everything we eat tells a story. The premise of the show is a once-in-a-lifetime cooking demonstration by Chef Maximo Cortés, the renowned inventor of his signature-style “Imperial Cuisine.” The audience excitedly awaits Chef Maximo’s arrival, relaxing with cocktails and complimentary hors d’oeuvres served to their seats. Suddenly their complacency is broken when Maximo’s amusing assistant, Jovanni, appears onstage. As Jovanni cooks, he deconstructs the dish in humourous and surprising ways, serving up opinions on the European colonization of Asia, the state of modern agriculture, the ethics of food distribution and consumption – only a few of the ideas sampled in this engaging performance piece. A Q&A period follows the performance.

Purchase single admission to this event OR get access to all LiterASIAN 2018 events (including workshops, panels, and opening and closing events) with the Festival Pass here.
