A Contemporary Asian Australian Performance production
“****1/2 – A heartwarming and fun look at heritage and storytelling told one dish at a time.” – The AU Review
After sell-out shows at Sydney Festival, Double Delicious is on the menu in Chatswood!
A sumptuous night of storytelling, served with a side of dishes straight from the heart.
The flavours and aromas of our favourite dishes wind their way through the deepest recesses of our being, where even the thought of a particular meal can transport us back to a pivotal moment. After sell-out seasons at Sydney Festival, Asia TOPA and OzAsia Festival, Double Delicious sees storyteller cooks share secrets behind the dishes that proved significant in their lives.
Storytellers include TV Chef and Kim Chi master Heather Jeong as she remembers meeting her father for the first time at the age of 9. Dancer-choreographer Raghav Handa grapples with the loss of ritual, and how it fits into his contemporary life in Australia. Performing artist Valerie Berry recalls the shock of moving as a child from bustling Manila to outback Ceduna. And Writer, Journalist and Presenter Benjamin Law tells the hilarious story of growing up in the shadow of the Big Pineapple. And Writer and Comedian Jennifer Wong recounts the many kinds of sweetness that nourish and heal.
This truly is a show that tantalises all the senses. Audiences will have the unique opportunity to taste the story. Bitter and sweet, each story culminates in an authentic recreation of the storyteller’s chosen dish.
Tickets include a tasting sample of each of the five dishes cooked.
