Pepe Deyaw’ is a a self-taught chef, and dance performer whose mission is to research and choreograph living designs and sociality. He started cooking out of nostalgia for island tropical memories and has since been utilising this practice as a research tool for rehearsing emergent democracies through a platform that he founded called Nowhere Kitchen. Nowhere Kitchen is an evolving methodology of ‘cooking with leftovers’ or making something with what is (already) there; being developed through a series of live cooking performances or manifestos. The practice began as a dinner series in different houses in Madrid in 2012 and has since been taking place in various expanded contexts. Join Pepe for an inspiring talk on serendipitous folklores and the importance of leftovers.
