We formed in 2016, and are a theatre and performance group made up of eight artists hailing from Florida. Altogether, sometimes in pairs, or in any potential combination of members or outside collaborators, Hot Kitchen devises performances and experiences with a focus on the stupid and the absurd, disregarding the plot structures of traditional plays.
