Neither There, Nor Here is an original, multimedia, interdisciplinary memory play-meets-cooking show directed by Sherrine Azab and created by A Host of People. NTNH focuses on the experience of people with liminal identities of race, gender, culture and sexuality. Via personal stories, memories, and family artifacts, it investigates those who live between so-called traditional binaries to create their own culture as they move beyond more typical either/or identities, all through the lens of a cooking show where the performers prepare dishes representative of their mixed identities.
