the project - Kitchen Dub Experience (KDE)

The Kitchen Dub Experience is a work of art involving performance and site-specific work. The elements of this event are music, images and gastronomy delivered in a real time situation. Using a combination of timing, precision and maestry, the performance provokes a hyper-sensorial state between the participants and the artist. For about 1 hour, this mix of actions and phases of preparations of a number of courses of food are presented and offer to the viewers in a quasi-religious way. Physically this act of serving and preparing food to people combined with the celebratory mood of the live music, creates an ancient ritual of men's cultural history.
