A razor, a shiny knife is a culinary performance group that creates educational, social, and theatrical experiences around the world. Join them at the Lab for a conversation about a luxury the developed world takes for granted—water. Learn about modern culinary techniques and ingredients that work through the manipulation of water. These ingredients will be used to create metaphorical examples of water scarcity and potability around the world, comparing countries, cities, and even districts across the same city.
