In Cuckoo, South Korean Jaha Koo has put up a play that the stage with three unusual performers: rice cookers. That’s right, you read that well, rice cookers. The play takes you through the last two decades of Korean history, with both personal experiences, major political events, as well as eating culture.

How would actors fill their bowls of rice then?
