The Öther Eye of Tiger
Joey Chestnut is a theatre performance about food. About how we eat what we eat. Because everyone does it. Everyone, everyday. From the day we are born to the day we die. The interactive piece, set against a backdrop of sound and light installations, begins as a new world record has been set - Joey Chestnut has eaten 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes without throwing up. It then follows the imaginary life of real-world eating champion Joey Jaws Chestnut, seen through the eyes of an eccentric piano-playing narrator. A story that is nonlinear but which revolves around food like planets revolve around the sun. Joey Chestnut explores the taboos, traditions, joys as well as the rotten things in Western dining.
