Sadly we can’t reveal that all that much about this one. It would sour the experience for both you and the actor. To whet your appetite, however, we can say that Cook is about food, stories and community.
Nassim Soleimanpour’s latest work involves cooking a recipe on stage in a story of how food brings ingredients and people together. A new actor takes to the stage fresh each night having never before seen the script. A charming new show with a taste of philosophical questions.
Cook is a collaboration created by the Iranian dramatist Nassim Soleimanpour and the Danish dramatist/director Jesper Pedersen.
They realized that Soleimanpour's signature cold reads are similar to recipes where you pick up a cookbook and follow the instructions. So they go country to country and interview people in their kitchens, and write stories based on that country and those people. Later they perform it with an actor, cold read onstage. They are working towards finishing a cookbook that they can publish in the hope of bringing theater into your own kitchen.
“The audience hangs on every word... a living piece of theatre.”
