Between a Wok and a Hot Pot by Amanda Lin

Cahoots Theatre Production

While preparing a traditional hot pot onstage, Amanda reminisces for her audience about when it wasn’t so cool to be Asian, and delves into the complicated topic of cultural identity and appropriation through food and art. What does it mean to be authentic, and does it even matter?

Between a Wok and a Hot Pot is an Asian-Canadian Dinner Theatre — in the production, the character Mandy is accompanied by three projection screens that assist her (but also interrupts her via the characters Hot Pot, and Wok). 
I am currently being mentored by designer Julia Howman, in mostly assistant designer capacities.
