Following the successful launch of “Space of Dreams”, Practice Tuckshop will be returning in May for its second theme “Space of Taboos”. Embark on a journey to unearth the untold stories of our heritage with The Kitchen Series #AhMa, where the most important conversations will soon take place!
Supported by the National Heritage Board, this immersive theatrical experience provides participants the opportunity to share stories about their heritage through the medium of an intimate live cooking session. This session will be hosted and moderated by Kuo Jian Hong, Artistic Director of The Theatre Practice (TTP) and will include a 3-course meal prepared using recipes from her own personal collection.
Due to the unique experiential nature of this program, each participant enters the Kitchen Space with a recipe, departs with a story about their heritage and hopefully, re-enter their lives inspired to collect and discover more stories about where they come from.
In addition, participants will be given an opportunity to interview Kuo Jian Hong about the stories that surround her recipes.
Come join in this exciting conversation and spend a meaningful weekend with an evening of food, laughter and stories. To encourage the future generation of storytellers, there will also be a special live cooking session held for parent-child duos. This opportunity allows for a unique bonding experience, as both parent and child delves into the histories and narratives of loved ones around them, and perhaps, even themselves! This session will be held by Kuo Jian Hong, award-winning director behind outstanding children’s productions such as The wee Question Mark and the Adventurer.
*Live cooking sessions will be hosted in English.
Unfortunately, food served will not be vegetarian friendly nor halal.

Art originates from life. Theatre is like a mirror that reflects the people and happenings in life from a different perspective, encouraging us to look within ourselves and to observe the ways of others.
