GET IT WHILE IT’S HOT
Experimental theatre company Pony Cam are bringing together a pair of world class chefs for an interdisciplinary cook-off. Artists vs Chefs vs One Very Big Clock.
Half daytime food drama, half live performance, Get It While It’s Hot is a cooking show like no other. A fast-paced, theatrical examination of food as a vehicle for story and skill.
Over 100 minutes of fierce competition, three teams will plate up three courses to a group of discerning judges. There’ll be mystery boxes, technical challenges, cravats, canapés, and theatrical sabotage. Each night a new winner will be crowned. Each night somebody will be going home.
This is a celebration of food. A recognition of labour. A culinary catastrophe just waiting to happen.
Bring your inner Matt Preston and come be part of this joyful experience.
