Carmen C. Wong

Carmen C. Wong is a curiously hungry nomad and performance-maker whose current research explores affective ecologies and sites of belonging within places of food-making, everyday cooking choreographies, and food micro-ethnographies. Her work is usually expressed through participatory performances by, with and around food, its makers, and its eaters. She is interested in investigating through her pedagogy and dialogical practice, the slippery concept of food authenticity vis-a-vis migration, and embodied attentiveness to sensory experiences in the everyday as social practice.
