›Cooking Catastrophes‹ is cookery show, performance as well as contemplation on the future all at the same time. In front of an audience, three professional cooks prepare a meal of several coursesconsisting of forest fires, raging rivers, avalanches, meteor showers, mining explosions and plane crashes. The meal is made up of catastrophes, some well-known, which are then artistically prepare, cooked and finally destroyed – although not before the audience have had a taste. Seasoned with expert knowledge and staged in front of a live camera using images in a way that is reminiscent of the news, ›Cooking Catastrophes‹ presents the polar opposites of pleasure and horror on the same plate.
