Mugaritz, culinary creativity and innovation>
THE OTHER KITCHEN / Culture
The interest in promoting culture through the culinary world has always been one of the main features of Mugaritz. In collaboration with various companies and experts, the essence and properties of the cuisine have been shaped and merged with other disciplines such as music, theater and dance, creating spontaneous and surprising results.
One of the clearest examples of this close relationship between the world of the cuisine and the culture is Mugaritz BSO, a gastronomy-musical project led by Andoni Luis Aduriz and Felipe Ugarte in which the soul of the gastronomy is screened through a musical formula. Another example is the play Degustación de Titus Andrónicus directed by La Fura dels Baus, we still work with them in plays like "Macaron de Caza". Those are examples of how the world of the cuisine can be translated into art forms like music and theatre.
Moreover, there is a long list of projects that could be enumerated, in which Mugaritz has worked with various companies and artists. Examples include, Picnic Session, a cultural event taking place at the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, and the creative workshop Mugaritz, esto no es un restaurante developed in La Casa Encendida.
