Combine celebrity chefs, theatrical visuals, storytelling, and delicious food and you get the most intriguing night out on the Central Coast this May. Double Delicious is the latest interactive theatre experience to hit The Art House stage starring Heather Jeong, Valerie Berry, Raghav Handa, Benjamin Law, and Jennifer Wong.
Audiences will be seated at large dining tables on The Art House stage for this memorable experience in which they hear the secrets behind the dishes close to these chefs’ hearts. They will share their stories with theatrical flair of family, upheaval, loss and legacy. Each ticket includes a sample serving of all five dishes to activate the tastebuds and make for a fully immersive and sensory experience.
The Art House is thrilled to present such a unique performance event, with an aim to diversify its offerings on stage beyond the traditional theatre experience.
“We all know how flavours and aromas can transport us to deep memories and stories of our being,” says Marketing Co-ordinator Kristina Deminick, “Double Delicious reveals the lives behind the chefs from laughter to loss and reminds us of the powerful nature of sharing food.”
Double Delicious comes to The Art House as part of a 2022 tour after sell-out seasons at Sydney Festival, Asia TOPA and Oz Asia Festival.
“…a lush and evocative series of skilfully narrated performances, tantalising all the senses whilst also delivering moments of real human connection.” ★★★★1/2 Cara Anderson, Limelight Magazine
“…deeply moving and gently provocative, turning focus to Australia’s multiculturalism and the way that notions of authenticity are shaped by our world.” Ben Neutze, Time Out
Benjamin Law “In some ways, food is the ultimate form of storytelling. In a single dish, you’ll have stories of family, culture, geography and history invested into all the ingredients and flavours. It immediately allows people to bond, and is often the fastest route – and first step – towards understanding one another. Theatre and food both create community. Why not combine them?”
