The Eating Show

Hang Su

Three vocalists cook up a culinary experience from the internet healing phenomena Eating Show (Muk-bang) and ASMR, spiced with a global social problem: racially motivated violence against Asians, from the 20th century to current Asian Hate by COVID-19. With a fusion sound cuisine of internet cult, experimental vocal music and Asian world music, the piece shows the unheard perspectives of  Asians and invites the audience to question their own role in the post-migrant society.

Hang Su is a composer of new music. He works on performative projects and experiments with new forms of musical theater.


N O T E:
The play addresses anti-Asian violence and is therefore recommended for audiences 16 and older.
