“They’ve done a couple other performances at ArtsEmerson over the years. This is a really great one. It is exactly as the title says, it’s “cuisine and confessions.” They’ve constructed a kitchen on stage at the Cutler/Majestic and you’re welcomed into their kitchen. And really this is a performance unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, where you have an acrobatic troupe really giving confessions, telling family stories about the importance of food in their lives, whether it’s one particular meal or how families gather together. This is intertwined with dance and acrobatics and actual cooking. They make banana bread on stage, so by time you leave you’re ravenous because you can start to smell this wonderful banana bread wafting through the theatre. You do get to taste it after.”
