14/48: Nordo Food Theater Thunderdome
4/48: Nordo combines the pressure-cooker of The Worlds Quickest Theater Festival with the immersive experience and culinary excellence of Café Nordo.
On the Monday night of each week, four playwrights are paired with four chefs, given a random ingredient and a common theme, a randomly selected director and a randomly drawn cast. They will have four days to write, rehearse, prepare recipes for, and serve our audience the fruits of their labors on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights: four plays interwoven with a four-course meal.
The 14/48 Projects marked the beginning of its third season with the December 2015 production of Theater Anonymous. In the first two seasons, The 14/48 Projects continued to develop an international network of 14/48 Festivals, returning to Leicester, England and Austin, TX and debuting in London, and introducing Theater Anonymous to Leicester. They also shepherded 14/48: HS, an entirely student-run festival, through its second year, winning the 2015 Teeny Award for Best Youth Engagement Program. The 14/48 Projects just renewed another year-long residency at North Seattle College, and kicked off a four-year production agreement with ACT Theater, making the signature festival a cornerstone of the ACTLab program. Our Partner Project program continues to support new work by festival veterans all around Seattle. The 14/48 Projects is led by President Jodi-Paul Wooster and Executive Director Shawn Belyea.
Since 2009, Café Nordo has served up modern cuisine while thrilling audiences with the history, myth, science and politics of food. In April 2015 Café Nordo opened A Seattle institution (Huffington Post), the permanent venue Nordos Culinarium, in the former home of the Elliott Bay Book Company in Pioneer Squares Globe Building. The first theater to return to this beloved neighborhood in over a decade, Nordos Culinarium offers unique, year-round live entertainment integrating food and drink.
Due to the nature of the show, dietary restrictions may not be accommodated, however, a vegetarian option will be available for performance. Please notify your server upon arrival.
