VIVA LAS ROOTS
October 29-30 & November 2-5, 2011; 7PM
Intermedia Arts, with artist in residence Robert Farid Karimi, presented Viva Las Roots,
the PopUp Performance Kitchen of Mero Cocinero Karimi, Iranian/Guatemalan host of The Cooking Show con Karimi & Comrades.
This interactive culinary journey honored cultural recipes of the past in the spirit of a Dia de Los Muertos
celebration. Mero Cocinero and his crew from ThePeoplesCook.org
transformed the Intermedia Arts gallery for 6 nights only (with a special Dia de los Muertos
dinner on November 2), serving delicious dinner and hilarious performances. Ofrendas
created by local artists were also on display.
