Demonstration Gone Wrong

Title: Demonstration Gone Wrong
Artist: Robin Linde Productions
Dates: Saturday 24 September and Saturday 1 October 2016
Times: 12pm – 4pm (on the hour for 15 minutes)
Location: Demonstration Kitchen, Market Hall, Borough Market, SE1


By trying too hard, having a different approach to team-work, and changing the recipe last minute by mistake, everything is sure to go unexpectedly wrong.

Keeping up appearances during a live food demonstration at Borough Market, whilst trying to save the dish of the day, will escalate into a ludicrous display of antics in this interactive physical slapstick comedy.

After last year's overwhelming success, Monsieur Ma'Mon, the world's greatest chef, is back in London with his assistant Charlotta to present his newest food creations in a site-specific performance for Borough Market’s demonstration kitchen.

At each performance a new effort is made to create the perfect dish, Ma'Mon style.
