Chef Rø is the culinary alter-ego of Portuguese performance artist Rogério Nuno Costa. Since 2006, he has been creating performances, documentaries, supper clubs, show cookings, workshops, theme parties, radio and TV shows, installations, pop-up restaurants, texts, and numerous cross-disciplinary attempts for elevating Art to the status of Gastronomy, since the opposite has already been done. Moved by the possibilities of interconnection between Art, Gastronomy, Philosophy and Technology, Chef Rø has been working as “conceptual” chef, food writer and culinary consultant in collaboration with countless performing and visual artists, photographers, researchers, renowned chefs & restauranteurs, food magazines, art institutions, theatre companies and choreographers, both in Portugal and abroad: Edições do Gosto, Baldio/Indirecções Generativas, Estrutura, Teatro Praga, Prado – espaço ruminante, Cão Solteiro, O Espaço do Tempo, Nomad Dance Academy, Binaural, Pavilhão do Conhecimento, Festival Tell, Alkantara, Circular, Goethe Institut, Baixa-Chiado PT Bluestation, Teatro Académico Gil Vicente, TEDx Guimarães, CCB, Bela TV, G.A.T.A., Festival Encontrarte, Fábrica de Santo Thyrso, Miss’Opo, Galleria Nunes, Escola de Hotelaria de Coimbra, Flanzine, Velha-a-Branca, O.G.A.E Portugal, Daniel Pinheiro/Lisa Parra, Nómadas no Baldio/Pólo das Gaivotas, Aalto University, BUDA Kunstencentrum/Kortrijk, Viral Agenda, TRASHÉDIA/Joana Barrios, Porto Fashion Makers, among others.
