Food sculpting has a profound role in the history of Chinese cuisine. While recognised as an important art in its native land, in the Netherlands a very different tale is sung. Once the crown jewel of every dish in Chinese restaurants, food sculptures are now slowly disappearing and the craft is threatened with extinction. Having put aside their carving knives for decades, migrant food sculptors Chen Mo and Awan are once again called to put their skills to work. Artists Ami Tsang and Fay Teo invite the masters to dare to re-imagine the future of food sculpting in the Netherlands, with a completely new approach.
This production is in association with CinemAsia FilmLab.

Following the footsteps of Hannibal Lecter, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine where he studied to the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall where he devoured a flutist, we will stride over Baltimore through a series of random encounters.
Today, Hannibal Lecter would have been 83 years old. What is the extent of his shadow and what does it reveal about relationships?
