How do we define a “sour relationship”? Join us for a round table conversation and open mic addressing the metaphor of sour. We will talk about our experiences of relationships with friends and lover having gone sour, or how to avoid that in the future. Think the sour taste of global politics, or how relationships between governments effect us all.
Jevijoe Vitug and guest artist Juan Lazaro will cook variations of “Sinigang”, a popular Filipino sour stew and give a presentation about the imperialist/colonialist relationship between the Philippines and US that “has gone sour” for a long time.
