Pepe Dayaw invites you to participate in his creative process that combines cooking, dance and fashion in an artistic practice.
Nowhere Kitchen is a culinary performance project. It is based on the philosophy that everything can be used and processed and the improvised play of cooking with what is there. The creative use of food creates an experimental space in which the environment, the movement of the body and cooking as an action are explored.
As part of the residency in the frame of DiR – Dance in Residence Brandenburg, Pepe leads workshops that focus on the individual and collective potential of the participants. The materials available in the space provide the basis for the process that emerges when cooking, movement and dance merge to develop a routinised choreography.
Everyone who wants to broaden their horizons and is interested in dance, performance and social developments is invited.
