How Do You Cook (Vol 1.)

Utrecht, The Netherlands. 2021



How do you cook is a cooking/eating performance which unfolds through three dishes functioning as eating moments or acts. Each dish is our interpretation of how three Peruvian’s living in the Netherlands cooks their version of the Peruvian dish “Papa a la Huancaina”. Alongside hosting a dinner, this project draws from the artistic forms of the performance lecture and interactive storytelling to create a moment to reflect upon political migration and adaptation for personal standpoints. We have seen that combining everyday-dining aesthetics with more dramatic languages builds a comfortable yet critical atmosphere.
