THE SERPENT'S TABLE

tst_pauline_550.jpg

Combining storytelling, performance, theatrical installation and food, The Serpent's Table tantalises all the senses in the telling of stories straight from the heart.  This unique culinary and theatrical experience brings together a crack team of artists who deliver compelling stories about family, culture, loss, reconciliation and the sustainability.  An intricate sound design evokes the atmosphere and emotion of each narrative.  Projected visual media define and transform the spaces through which the audience moves.  Storytellers prepare the dishes that inspire their stories, and the audience is invited to share them. Directed by Darren Yap and Lee Lewis.  Performers Indira Naidoo, Pauline Nguyen, Jennifer Wong, Darren Yap, Anna Yen with Luke Ha.  Designers Alice Lau, Bambang N Karim, NIcholas Ng and Luiz Pampolha.

The Serpent's Table premiered at Sydney Festival 2014.  Selling out within minutes of on line Box Office opening, audiences and critics agree, it is one of the hits of the Festival. See MEDIA for reviews.
