We are what we eat. But where does it come from? How does it get here? A wacky and fun culinary exploration of global food domination and the conquest for our appetites.
Everything we eat tells a story. While cooking a traditional Filipino dish in real time, translator/performer Derek Chan takes us on an entertaining and thought-provoking trip through history as he weaves stories of conquest, imperialistic desires, and colonialism through the construction (and deconstruction) of the “Rellenong Bangus.” Audiences will immerse themselves in the tantalizing aromas of a kitchen, and a tasting plate is served at the conclusion of the piece. A Taste of Empire is truly a feast for the mind and the palate.
Presented in Cantonese with open captions in English and Simplified Chinese.
