Estimated 5-6 intimate sessions completed within a 90-mins total period.
Little India has always been a place of congregation and many conversations were held over meals. From the early migrants to today’s hipsters, this place is never silent. Today, most people are too focused and distracted by their phones even when they dine at restaurants.
Inspired by Little India’s historical sense of community and gathering together over food, Kamini would like to recreate this experience for audiences. When the storyteller comes and sits at your table, it is time to put away your devices and listen.
When people talk over meals, a flurry of emotions and memories arise. Kamini will bring diners through the history of Little India and the pivotal role of eating, gathering and conversation, especially among migrant communities. Audiences will be treated to a story connected to the spices and ingredients used by the chef for the meal.
