Exploring the concept of the body as a vessel, “The Kitchen” is an experiential, multi-sensory feast that revolves around the idea of how we make relationships palatable to each other and ourselves . A husband and wife sit before the audience, stirring vats of payasam as 12 mizhavu drummers from Kerala provide a mesmerising rhythm. Inspired by the teachings of the mystical philosopher, Rumi, this astounding work stands at the crossroads of contemporary and folk performance. Commissioned by the Sydney Festival, Auckland Festival and Holland Festival, this performance will mark the Asian premiere of The Kitchen.
Roysten Abel’s stunning theatrical presentation of the Manganiyar Seduction as the opening act at Melbourne Festival had people cheering and standing in utter amazement. He has continued to stun the world of theatre with his witty and musical play of drama and storytelling with his follow-up piece, A Hundred Charmers. Born in Kerala, he founded the Indian Shakespeare Company almost twenty years ago.
