Overview

Dining with friends and families is becoming a thing of past. We cook at home mostly until the day we can gather around the table or terrace to have a drink and can't help but miss the "unique experience". Watching cooking class on YouTube or order Uber Eats to upgrade a day-to-day meal is not enough to inspire the culinary experience.

How about a circus artist give a special recipe while transforming the kitchen to a theater? The host can integrate her circus art and cooking skill into true and authentic entertainment experience.

How to set-up

Things to prepare:

  • Built-in camera (your laptop) or good quality webcam/Stand alone camera in a stable/fix position where it can capture the whole kitchen that you cook and/or perform;
  • A screen where you can see and interact with audiences;
  • Space to perform


Master Google Meet

  • Take a first 5-10 mins to let Guests in by clicking “accept” while using this time to do an introduction and warm up your audiences. Make sure everyone enters before a show starts.
  • Ask audiences to pin your screen, mute when you are performing (vice versa), or turn on their camera during activities or Q&A. Use this excuse to interact with audiences.
  • You can use tiled layout to see and interact with all audiences. Open a chat room as well to see their comments and reactions.
  • Are you performing at your home or training center where there is background noise? Use https://krisp.ai/ to cut noise for better user experience.

Make an experience flow seamless and engaging. What matters is not how sophisticated the show is but how the audiences enjoy and value the experience.  Tailor each project with clear target audiences in mind so that you can meet and exceed the expectation. Technical shit happens, but be always calm and entertainers as you are on stage.
