Money problems? Issues with love, your job, property, fertility? Don't despair! Curious patrons of all ages are invited to a live baking installation at Asphodel. Come unburden yourself of your troubles and receive a customized soufflé that will guide you to the correct future.
Free of charge! Come and go as you please!
Asphodel is pleased to present Persona, a live baking installation by Kristin Worrall and Matt Korahais. Performer and pastry chef Worrall invites the audience to watch her make soufflés, one after another. And while she may have some baking tips to dispense, it's up to the spectators to share their own troubles – culinary or otherwise – in exchange for dessert.
Kristin Worrall is a pastry artist, performer, sound designer, and musician based in New York City and born in Providence, RI. She has performed and produced her live baking show "The Recipe" at various venues in and around New York City and is a founding member of Nature Theater of Oklahoma. Her sound work has been seen and heard at BAM, The Public Theater, The Kitchen, Classic Stage Company, PS 122, The Wexner Center, New Ohio Theater, Incubator Arts, HERE, La Mama, 3LD, The Knitting Factory, The Conan O’Brien Show, the Food Network, and many others. Ms. Worrall is a Henry Hewes Design Nominee, a recipient of the A.R.T. New York Theater Grant for Sound Design, and is an alumni of the Lincoln Center’s Director’s Lab and the Watermill Center. She is a graduate of Institute of Culinary Education (Baking/Pastry Arts), The New School (MA/Media Studies), and UW-Madison (BA/English).
Matthew Korahais is an actor, playwright, and dramaturg. In addition to The Recipe with Kristin Worrall, he has collaborated with artists and companies such as The Nature Theater of Oklahoma, Soho Rep, 600 Highwaymen, Creative Time, Pedro Reyes, Richard Maxwell, The Walker Art Center, Joey Hauk Weiss, Sibyl Kempson, Trish Harnetiaux, and many others.
