Too Many Cooks… is a theatrical percussion piece using kitchen items.
Three cooks and only one pot? This playful piece captures the dynamics of a crowded kitchen, as three cooks compete with their own recipes.
While the plot and movements are carefully choreographed, the rhythms played are all improvised. There are two different performances for viewing below.
