inside this week


THIS IS OUR reward for all the rain, for the spoilt walks and weather-induced pain – a weekend so hot some of you will even complain. And fortunately, with temperatures threatening to climb as high as 30 degrees, we’ve got the goods to tempt you away from your hoods. Sure, the Premier League season might be starting, but football games are ten-a-penny. Whereas heatwaves in monsoon-friendly Denmark (it’s tropical without the heat) – let’s face it, there are never, ever any. You owe it to yourself to get out and about this Saturday, and it needn’t be a drain on your finances. For starters, early doors, reserve a place on the grass to watch the three-hour concert in the grounds of Rosenborg Castle (see G2 or last week’s InOut for details), a preview of the Royal Danish Theatre’s forthcoming 2012-13 season that is completely free. The grounds open

at 9am and the concert doesn’t start until 6pm – so you can see the need to get there early. And then, once you’ve bought Farmor a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey and sat her down on your blanket with a bottle of scotch, head off to the St Albans Summer Fete (see page 13 of the main newspaper for details), an annual fair that opens at 10am with loads of cracking bargains on offer, including thousands of English-language books and lots of Anglo food goodies. Once you’ve eaten your cream tea, cucumber sandwich, and packet of Hula Hoops, head off to the Copenhagen Pride Parade, which starts at 1pm at Frederiksberg Rådhus (G8), for an afternoon of sizzling action. Most of the participants were going to be daring whatever the weather, so God knows what they’re going to wear on the hottest day of the year. And after you’ve had your fill, you might consider a trip to Malmø to take in the delights of its week-long festival (G9) or, instead of the castle, enjoy a night out at the CPH Songwriters Festival (G3) in Vesterbro. So don’t say you haven’t been warned. It’s going to be hot, the city’s got the lot, so off you trot.

Anyone who smokes like that has to be a cockney: “Buy us a pig’s ear you swine, and I’ll tell you no porkies”

Puppet Junior

Venues in Amager, Nørrebro, Bispebjerg/Nordvest & Vesterbro; starts Thu (Aug 23), ends Aug 27; free adm; www. THE THREE disgruntled punk pigs trotting around Copenhagen next week might look like rebels without a cause, but they are not as free as they appear. In the wings, there is a greater force pulling on the puppet strings – a puppeteer, in fact. These dexterous performers and their puppets are set to invade the city next week as a part of Puppet Junior – a five-day festival geared towards children and their families. The festival was first dreamt up during a job interview in 2004. Barnaby Pedersen was applying for a position at Kulturanstalten – where he is now project and culture co-ordinator – and when asked what Copenhagen needs, he replied “an international puppet festival”. He got the job and in 2006, Puppet Junior was born. The main idea was to see whether it was possible to perform puppetry outdoors and in public spaces – a phenomenon unprecedented in Copenhagen. Its inception was initially to serve as a forerunner for the adult-focused Copenhagen Puppet Festival. The two now run on alternate years, but Puppet Junior has become even better established than its adult sibling. This is partially due to the

Performance Tivoli Cabaret

Tivoli, Vesterbrogade 3, Cph V; ends Sep 22; performances Tue-Thu 20:00, ThuSat 20:30; Tickets: 315-415kr; duration: 180 mins, www. Complete with little round tables and singers who double as waiting staff, Cabaret at Tivoli is an evening of light-hearted kitsch entertainment. Incorporating stand-up comedy, magic, drag queens, sketches, opera and music medleys, this will be a fun variety show, whether you take advantage of the free bar or not. Most of the acts are in Danish, but the cheesy pop hits are in a language everyone can understand. EB

relative ease with which the organisers can garner funding for the children’s event. Pedersen puts this down to people in Denmark commonly associating puppetry with children’s theatre rather than being suitable for adults. “When you look at the West End in London, there are several plays where puppetry skills are used,” Pedersen said. “And through the festival, we want to introduce puppetry not only to the theatre-goers, but also to the theatres.” In recognition of his efforts, Pedersen received an UNIMA honorary award last year for increasing awareness about puppetry in the media and broader community. He thinks the festival has given puppetry a leg to stand on in Denmark, enabling puppeteers to show how powerful their craft can be. When a puppeteer is clever enough, the illusory action on stage can evoke real emotions from the audience. The King of Pain, a puppet that featured in the festival’s 2007 programme, was a good example. The puppet was forced by his pushy show director to eat swords and stick needles through his body, eliciting squeals from the squeamish audience, who had apparently forgotten that the King of Pain was an inanimate object. “I think there is something really magical about it when a seemingly dead object is brought to life,” Pedersen said, adding that the possibilities of what audiences can see on stage are heightened when there is an object between the performer and the

An Evening in the Secret Garden


Borgervænget 5a, Cph Ø; Fri 20:00; tickets: 30kr at the door; further info: Facebook /moonhound stories, 7140 5357; www. New English-speaking theatre troupe, Moonhound Theatre, invite you to a night of storytelling in their Secret Garden. Come for a special night on which, under the stars, we shall showcase our enchanting and uplifting stories! “Stories That Move.” Once the secret garden opens, you can take your time to explore the magical world, interact with characters or sit round the fire. Come dressed as your favourite story character and get a free drink. Besides that, there is a cheap bar and a vegan grill. DS

audience. “The puppet can do a lot more than the performer would be allowed to.” Some of the stars of this year’s programme are three cigarette-smoking tearaways – otherwise known as the three little pigs – a dragon marionette that breathes fire, and an oversized Babushka doll with a whole puppet theatre inside her dress. By performing in playgrounds and moving to four different boroughs around Copenhagen, the festival is able to attract a broad audience. And because the festival is free, it makes it accessible to everyone. Pedersen said people aged between zero and 99 could enjoy the festival. While most of the shows for toddlers will run in the morning, the organisers have made a conscious effort to try to entertain the accompanying mums, dads and grandparents throughout the day as well. Pedersen’s Kulturanstalten, along with 2200 Kultur, Sokkelundlille Børnekulturhus and Amagerbro Kultur, are hosting the event, and now that the programme is finalised, all the organisers can do is pray for sunshine. If the weather is too miserable, the performances will move indoors. In 2010, four days of glorious sunshine coincided with the Puppet Junior event and 4,500 people showed up to witness the spectacle. Pedersen hopes Puppet Junior will attract at least that figure again this year, if not surpass it.

Teaterhuset, Rådhusstræde 13, Cph K; Sat Aug 18, 18:0024:00; tickets 60-100kr, festival pass (five days) 200kr; Copenhagen Post columnist Stuart Lynch is putting on a six-hour solo performance as part of the Vildskud (Wild Steps) theatre and performance art festival, which starts this coming Wednesday. Something of a cult performer in Denmark and Europe, Lynch will work for six hours straight in a show entitled Tarot Fucking. Based on the fallacy of the self-help culture and Lynch’s own technique of Theatre Switch Training (TST), the work runs without breaks from 6pm to midnight. The audience is able to come and go as they please, so step up for a no-holds barred evening of performance art.


Two Old Guys and a Relatively Young Man

Lille Carl, Dansescenen, 20 Pasteursvej, Cph V; Fri & Sat 20:00; tickets 60-130kr.; duration 85 minutes; 3388 8008, www.dansehallerne. dk, Written, choreographed, and performed by Venezuela’s Luis Lara Malvacias, who in 2003 founded the New York-based theatre collective 3RD CLASS CITIZEN, Two Old Guys is nothing short of the dramatic representation of a key concept in 20th century philosophy. These guys, Malvacias and two other performers, have done their metaphysical homework, and rarely has a philosophical idea – Heidegger’s Dasein (roughly representing human existence) – been wrapped in pillowcases and demanded your attention so insistently.

Råhuset, Onkel Dannys Plads 1-9, Cph V; starts Fri, ends Sun, open 10:00-02:00; tickets: 100kr each evening, three-day pass 200kr, www.; www. STEP ASIDE Distortion and Strøm festivals.

The festival features more than 150 local and international artists who will perform on one of five stages during the three-day event. “The basic vision was to acknowledge the fruitful Danish songwriting community and the current renaissance of the craft in Denmark,” the festival’s founder, Brett Perkins, told “The long-term vision is to establish Denmark and Copenhagen as the EU’s song-writing centre – which I would argue that it already is, at least in terms of having an active, accessible live scene.” Perkins, an American songwriter and touring artist living

Damp Gallery, Esplanaden 1C, Cph K; ends Sep 16; open Wed-Fri 12:00-18:00, Sat 11:00-16:00; This exhibition by Jon Stahn is based on his two-month stay in an area in the northwest of the USA called the Emerald Triangle.

Denmark and abroad. And as no acts are allowed to perform two years in a row, repeat-visitors can be assured that the surprise guests won’t be recycled. “I hope that when we reach our tenth year, we can use the entire city in a performance model similar to the Copenhagen Jazz Festival,” Perkins told A free opening party will be held on Thursday August 16 at Råhuset from 20:00 to 24:00 for those who want to get a taste of what the weekend

ahead will have to offer before buying tickets. And once more, access to training workshops is included in the price of the tickets, which this year offers the opportunity to participate in up to nine KODA workshops. KODA is a non-profit, membership-based organisation that works to support and protect the Danish music scene. For the first time, the festival will include a Nordic showcase stage, and there will be a dub/house set on Friday

night from 00:00 to 02:00 to pump up party-goers and anyone looking for a night of good music. The organisers are prepared for Denmark’s unreliable weather, with four of the stages located indoors and the ability to move the main stage indoors if necessary. This event is not to be missed by anyone disillusioned with the current music industry, as it will showcase the best of artists who have already established a name for themselves, as well as those who are still

up-and-coming. For aspiring musicians, it affords the opportunity to make connections and get tips from professionals and helps create a community feel in what can often be a cold business. “Some might call me an old Californian hippie, but I believe in synergy and strength in music and the community around it, in support of something bigger than just the pursuit of individual careers,” Perkins told

The duo, commando, and some serious electronic ammo Major Lazer

Vega Enghavevej 40, 1674 Cph V; Wednesday 21:00; Tickets 200kr;


ajor Lazer’s frontman – not their lead singer but the one you see on all their promotional material – is a butch, renegade Jamaican commando with a rocket-powered skateboard, whose laser is a hand. But don’t let that give you the wrong impression. Major Lazer in reality are one of the world’s best known electronic DJ duos who have been behind some of the scene’s

biggest club hits in recent years. The duo are very experimental and versatile, embracing electronic, dubstep, reggae, dancehall and newer genres such as trap and moombahton in their music. The duo explained to the music website The Vine how they came up with their name. “We were getting stuck into the rum at a friend’s club in New York and Major Lazer was born,” they said. “We just wanted to give the project an identity, and two white guys going to Jamaica to make music isn’t exactly the best one to represent the album, so we invented Major Lazer to be our frontman.” The English/American duo’s original line-up, DJ producers Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor and Wes ‘Diplo’ Pentz, were

first introduced when they worked with the British rapper MIA, and soon they developed a tight working relationship and produced an album of electronic dancehall, which was inspired by hanging out in Jamaican clubs. The album, Guns don’t kill people … Lazers do, was released in 2009, recorded in the legendary Tuff Gong studios (the very one started by Bob Marley) in Jamaica, and included contributions by many different vocalists. This was the first release to come out of the label partnership between Downtown Records and Diplo’s record label Mad Decent. On the album, they used their love of the reggae soundsystem and a background of house and electro hip-hop, creating a mash-up with Jamaican dancehall, resulting in a

unique type of genre. The biggest hit was ‘Pon de Floor’, which quickly became a worldwide hit in nightclubs, and then went mainstream when Beyoncé chose to use the beat in her hit single ‘Run the World (Girls)’. Towards the end of 2011, Switch left the duo – reportedly due to “creative differences” – and was replaced by Trinidadian DJ/producer Jillionaire. And in recent months, they have started collaborating with Amber Coffman, a vocalist from Dirty Projectors, producing a new track, ‘Get Free’, which includes a video of the famous Major Lazer character. It will be interesting to see whether they will present any new material at their Vega performance, which is part of the Strøm Festival (see G7 for

more details). They also announced last summer that there would be a new album coming out, although fans are still waiting in suspense. In the meantime Diplo has also been busy collaborating with other artists, including rap legend Snoop Dogg (now Snoop Lion) on his new reggae album. “The best thing about Jamaica is simply the accessibility. After that, it’s really a matter of making the music great,” Diplo told Interview Magazine about working on the second album in Jamaica. “But right now there’s a mad underground as well in Jamaica, and there’s something in the history and overall weirdness of the place that I can’t seem to stay away from.” lydia deichmann

CPH Jazzhouse; 20:00; 110kr Tonight is the coming together of one of the most exciting and positively diverse collaborations to have occurred under the roof of the Jazzhouse. The performance will be led by the critically-acclaimed kora player Dawda Jobareth, the Gnawa musician (hailing from the Sufi tradition) Mokhtar Gania, and one of Denmark’s most experimental jazz figures, Pierre Dørge, with his New Jungle Orchestra, a cosmopolitan musical project that combines westAfrican, Asian, and traditional jazz elements.

Preview Strøm Festival

Various venues across Cph; starts Mon, ends Aug 26;


openhagen will be lit up by the Strøm Festival for a week from Monday, which for the sixth year in a row is presenting some of electronic music’s biggest and boldest names. The two main stages will be in the lovely surroundings of Enghaveparken in Vesterbro, which will be transformed into a two-day hot spot of open-air concerts on Friday and Saturday (Aug 24-25, entry is just 20kr). A wide range of international acts are performing, including UK artists Emika, LV and Manchester-based Dub Phizix, who’ll perform with his longtime collaborator MC Strategy. And there will of course also be some local talent, such as upand-comers Kenton Slash Demon and Rangleklods. This year, Strøm will also host a series of workshops and master classes focusing on differ-


Lille Vega; 21:00; 110kr The London-based, Copenhagen-bred quintet offer a predictable brand of electro music carved out of the expected ingredients, making chintzy, dated and drab mixes that table nothing but stale soundwaves. It would be nice to think that their single ‘Alpha Male’ from the record Mastebate (2012) was an ironic backhander in the face of electro pop – on the same plane as Tiga’s ‘Shoes’ (see Youtube) – but the band takes themselves a little too seriously, despite their apparently funny titles, to be considered all that witty. ent aspects of electronic music production, including lectures about its history and evolution and shared artist experiences. Most of these will be held at Culture Box, in co-operation with Red Bull Music. The thrilling line-up proves how varied and inspiring electronic music can be, so make sure you attend one last festival that is guaranteed to fill you with vibrant electric impulses.

Fat Freddy’s Drop

Store Vega; 20:00; 265kr The New Zealand-based dub collective are world-renowned for their trademark live performances. Their upbeat, catchy and diverse reggae-dub mixes the old and new with a blend of the mellow thanks to Joe Dukie’s (aka Dallas Tamaira) soul-deep vocals and spacey, spiritual and exotic samples. Fat Freddy’s Drop are one of the world’s leading reggaedub acts, and tickets are usually pretty difficult to get your hands on, so be sure to book up in advance.

Siamese Fighting Fish

Lille Vega; 21:00; 80kr With a byline a little different to most heavy rock outfits, the Copenhagen-based act draws inspiration from the American punk rock scene and the Balkans. Their powerful combination of these inspirational prongs has led to the group making an impact on Copenhagen’s pop-rock scene - having established a firm fan-base following the release of their debut album We Are the Sound (2011).

Because We Care: Electronic Sunday Chill Out

KB18; 14:00; free adm With the summer coming to a sorry close, it’s these Sundays that you’re going to want to make the most of.

Although he is originally from Canada, Hawtin will forever be associated with putting Detroit on the dance music map.



Dillon Francis

Rust; 22:00; 60kr In the same category as other electro hit-men – including Porter Robinson, Kito and the colossal club-guru Diplo – Dillon Francis has fast gained the reputation as a party-starter with a batch of catchy remixes up his sleeve. If you’re looking to start the weekend early, Francis’s clean-cut electro and dub mixes have put him in the mix with some of the US’s biggest producers and DJ, so you can rest assured that your 60kr will be well spent.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Trentemøller with Mike Huckaby and Dario Zenker Culture Box, Kronprinsessegade 54, Cph K; Thu (23 Aug), 23:00; tickets: 70kr at door One of the biggest talents in electronic music in Denmark, Anders Trentemøller’s fresh sound and quality production give a new twist to the minimal techno sound, and his Physical Fraction EP was one of the sum-

mer anthems of 2005. As well as earning a nomination for a US Grammy award, he is the undisputed master of the Danish electronic music scene. Henrik Schwarz Enghaveparken; Fri 24 Aug, time to be confirmed; 20kr Beginning his musical career as a DJ, Henrik Schwarz quickly built up a reputation on the German deep house scene in the early 1990s. His onstage intensity and originality have made him one of the most popular live acts in house music. Lydia Deichmann

Culture Box; Fri 23:00; 70kr; Dominating the Frankfurt dance scene since the early ‘00s, Dietz alongside a handful of his compatriots from the Cadenza label have made in-roads into Berlin, Hamburg and Copenhagen in recent years - landing Beatportal’s prestigious ‘Artist to Watch’ title of 2009. Experimenting with the basic ingredients of classic house, Dietz’s simple electronic music has been influential on the global club scene, and while establishing himself primarily in northern Europe, he’s made appearances as far flung as Sydney.


Rust; Fri 01:00; 60kr Fronted by the dynamic Copenhagen duo – DJ Rumble and DJ Korch – Copenheavy have gained a solid reputation in town for their brand of hardcore electro. Tearing up the dancefloor with pulsating electronic beeps, energising lengths of dub and brief electro sam-

ples, their pounding electro will attract those among the Nørrebro late-crowd who are too wasted to cycle their way over to Kødbyen.

Hed Kandi

Søpavillionen; Sat 23:00; 120kr Dominating Ibiza and other major party destinations in the early ‘00s, Hed Kandi’s sassy, disco-box house and sexy club style was phenomenally popular and an iconic way of life for clubbers worldwide – partnering with airlines, clubs, holiday destinations and launching parties all over. Originally launched in the late ‘90s by entrepreneur and DJ/producer Mark Doyle, Hed Kandi will make a return to their humble beginnings tonight with Hed Kandi’s DJ, Sarah Louise, leading the parade along with Le Social’s Waqar and a Danish club DJ, Alando.

Inspired by Copenhagen’s Tivoli and historic fairgrounds, the audience is invited to meet and socialise through artistic entertainment and architectural experimentation. ILOVIT offers loads of fun and celebration, with elements of magic and distortion, in a daily programme filled with performances, concerts, movies, yoga classes, juggling and acrobatics.

Charlottenborg Charlottenborg is presenting two exhibitions: one by Danish artist Joachim Koester and the other by Scottish artist Ruth Ewan. The solo exhibition If One Thing Moves, Everything Moves is Joachim Koester’s largest and most comprehensive project to date in his homeland. It includes a dramatic orchestration created in collaboration with the artist that transforms Charlottenborg’s magnificent exhibition halls into a dark and immersive space. Ruth Ewan’s project, meanwhile, examines music’s utopian force. One of its main features is a unique archive of contemporary musical instruments, which the artist has collected by inviting the audience to donate old instruments. Both exhibitions will continue from 24 August until 30 December. Kunstforeningen GL STRAND With the exhibition Unfinished Journeys, GL STRAND focuses on the festival’s theme in relation to globalisation in local and global communities and their interaction. The nine participating artists examine how the modern individual navigates in a world that is characterised by enormous contrasts between the infinite and the limited. Unfinished Journeys highlights the journey, not only as a concrete move from one place to another, but also as a mental state. The participating artists are: Kimsooja (South Korea), Damián Ortega (Mexico), Pascale Marthine Tayou (Cameroon), Vladimir Tomic (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Sofie Hesselholdt & Vibeke Mejlvang (Denmark), Song Dong (China), Yto Barrada (Morocco/ France) and Isaac Julien (UK).

Den Frie Udstillingsbygning Den Frie Udstillingsbygning yields a multifaceted look at the understanding of communities – which, incidentally, is CAF’s theme.

The participating artists are: Jananne Al-ani (Iraq), Rejane Cantoni and Leonardo Crescenti (Brazi), Latifa Echakhch (France / Morocco), Søren Thilo Funder (Denmark), Ann Lislegaard (Denmark), Carsten Nicolai (Germany), Lea Porsager (Denmark) and Arturas Reila (Lithuania).

You’ll find live music, fairground rides, exciting cuisine and various sporting activities. Leave the stilettos at home and get lost in the cobblestone streets that make up Malmø’s city centre. Explore the food stalls that offer cuisine from all over the globe — keep an eye out for the moose burgers and Spanish paella. The streets leading away from the square play host to a multitude of shopping stalls at which you can find anything and everything, from festival-standard kitschy trinkets like key chains and lighters, to one-of-a kind treasures including antique jewellery, hand-painted clogs, kitchenware and hand-made soaps.

BlågårdsPlads Flea Market: BlågårdsPlads; Open Sundays 10:00-16:00 During the summer months, Blågårds square becomes the centre of the most cheerful transactions in Nørrebro. Each Sunday, neighbours take over the place to sell their own goods, in a lively and friendly fashion. The crowded square is turned into a chaotic bazaar where all kinds of curious objects – furniture, cutlery, zippo lighters secondhand clothes and shoes, spare parts for bicycles, and even the odd book in English – are piled next to each other. Everyone is likely to find what they like in this heterogeneous display. Sellers are happy to get rid of quite a lot of these objects, so prices can sometimes be unexpectedly good. A special trick would be to avoid getting there either too early – some of the vendors lose the will to haggle for too long as the day drags on, or too late – good stuff goes quickly. Midday is a probably the best time. Hurry up though, the market only runs until August 25.

MY FRIENDS and I get together sometimes to create dinners, with each one of us tackling a different course. One friend has an allergy to seafood, which somewhat restricts what we are able to make. I decided to find a recipe that would allow us seafood lovers to still get a taste of seafood, but in such a way that allowed our friend to also partake in the deliciousness. This is what I came up with: mushroom risotto, topped with seared scallops (scallops optional!). The concept would also work with vegetarians and omnivores eating together, if you substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth in the risotto.

Other than the fabulous flavours featured in this recipe, I’ve also found that it’s somewhat flexible as well. Feel free to use whatever dried mushroom you prefer. The recipe originally featured white button mushrooms, but that alone seems too boring. Generally, I, at the very least, include Portobello mushrooms—the beefy steak of the mushroom world. But there are a whole plethora of mushrooms out there and don’t be afraid to try out different combinations! If you want to get fancy, you could try to use truffle butter or truffle oil when searing the scallops. It gives them a light flavour of truffles, which goes well with the risotto.

Restaurant Kiin Kiin Guldbergsgade 21, Cph N; 3535 7535; four-course menu 450kr, seven-course 775kr (with wine menu 1450kr); There are only two Thai restaurants in the whole world that have been awarded a Michelin star. One of them is in London, the other one is Kiin Kiin, which you’ll find in the heart of Nørrebro. And it’s well deserved. Kiin Kiin isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience, a place where every little detail is thought through. PDR Reinwald’s Farvergade 15, 1463 Cph K; open Mon-Sat 14:00-24:00 (kitchen closes at 22:00); 3391 8289; five-course menu with wine 850kr, other dishes 75215kr; Serving lunch and dinner, a director’s script-length of choices confronts you at Reinwald’s. It’s a who’s who of classic French and French-inspired Danish dishes as well as a monthly set menu. Any chef would be proud of this. SC 1. th. Herluf Gade 9, Cph K; 3393 5770,; 1,250kr per person; 1. th. is a gourmet restaurant with a twist. Tucked away behind a hard-to-find door on the first floor to the right of a typical Copenhagen apartment, the restaurant is based around the concept of the dinner party with guests stepping into what appears to be a private apartment and then being utterly spoilt by their hosts. The monthly set menu costs 1,250kr and has a whopping ten courses, and you can tell them in advance of any food quirks you might have and they will personalise the menu for you. Terrific food, friendly and attentive service and a unique setting. CS

Its simple menu boasts a fine selection of organic, homemade Danish fare, with a touch of seasonal influence. There were two highlights: the veal, pumpkin, mushrooms and potatoes with amazing truffle sauce (a “best ever veal experience”) and the chocolate cake (“Oh My God”), which was possibly the best chocolate cake ever! MM BioMio Halmtorvet 19, 1700 Cph V; open daily 12:00-24:00 (later Fri and Sat), kitchen open 12:00-22:00; 3331 2000; starters 75kr, mains 135kr; www. Located in an old warehouse next to trendy Kødbyen, Bio Mio is certainly unusual for conservative Copenhagen.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until tender. Add mushrooms, chanterelles, garlic, and sauté until mushrooms are tender and juices evaporate. Stir in rice, add wine, cook, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed. Add 2dl of hot broth and simmer over medium-low heat, stirring often, until liquid is absorbed. Continue to cook until rice is just tender and the mixture is creamy, adding more broth, 2dl at a time, stirring often - about 28 minutes. Stir in the peas. Mix in the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Add butter and oil to large sauté pan on high heat. Salt and pepper the scallops. Once the fat begins to smoke, gently add scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1.5 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a golden crust on each side and still be translucent in the centre. Serve immediately.

With such a wide choice, it’s a great place to go as a group who can’t agree on a choice of cuisine. On our visit our favourites were the Dim Sums - particularly the steamed pork dumplings that are perfectly fluffy.

The main courses are substantial, honestly cooked and rich in taste and include Vienna schnitzel with baked new potatoes and coleslaw and chicken breast topped with apricots and cheese. There are also dumplings cooked in the Austrian way and delicious goulash among the many different servings to be had.

It’s an authentic taste of what the Emerald Isle was like in the 1980s in a pub totally devoid of concepts, themes, and DIY Irish pub kits.

G13 Once bitten you’ll be smitten with this Nordic tapas bar food & drink

Inout | The cph post entertainment guide

17 - 23 August 2012

It’s a bar, no it’s a restaurant, no it’s a bar … well this dilemma continued in my head as I made my way to Bella Sky Hotel’s Sky Bar restaurant. After all, you can see if from afar so there is plenty of time to think. Only two years young and already it’s hard to imagine the city skyline without Tower 1 and Tower 2, the two tall buildings that comprise the hotel and ever so slightly lean away from one another. Sky Bar, which is located on the 23rd floor of Tower 2, is nothing like the usual business lounge bars one comes across in big cities. It first opened its doors on 16 May 2011 as a cosy lounge and bar, where one could enjoy a drink while in good company or enjoy the views out to Copenhagen and all over the Øresund region. But it wasn’t long until the management decided they would add to the comfort of the customers, to complete the picture so to speak, and serve food. With two signature restaurants already at the hotel, the Library and the Balcony, Sky Bar decided to approach the matter of serving food to their guests with a twist. Instead of being served full meals, guests at Sky bar would get mini dishes, Nordic-style tapas, to have with their drinks. And thus Sky Bites came into being, the bar’s signature menu that consists of dishes in snack-sized portions. Sky Bar’s menu, which is now primarily Nordic European, follows a unique categorisation in which the dishes are put into four main sections based on the four elements: air, water, fire and earth. For instance, the shrimp with peas and dill and salted trout is listed under ‘water’, whereas the confit duck, Danish dried beef put under ‘earth’. Most people choose Sky Bar primarily to enjoy fine dining with remarkable views. But my evening turned out rather different, as it turned out to be one of the foggiest days of the year, which meant that the views were entirely blocked in the thick mist. But this did not dampen the evening and the plush décor, and the Honey smash welcome cocktail was just the tonic needed to make up for the lost views. As for the meal, my dining partner and I were served a selection of Sky Bites that included snack-size portions of lightly-smoked and dried ham, Danish dried beef, new potatoes with crunchy ventrèche and chive, foie gras mousse with beetroot, prawns with

Yikes, how are we going to fairly share these Bites?

peas and dill, black olive tapenade, blue potato chips, lemon curd of honey and Fynbo extra cheese. To accompany these dishes was a mixed bread basket, and to wash them down we were served some fine Henri Boillot Puligny Montrachet 2009. Dessert was the traditional Danish buttermilk dish koldskål. Usually at any restaurant, when going through the menu, one is usually spoilt for choice and making a decision on the dishes becomes a difficult matter. At Sky Bar, the decision is simple as, with the concept of Sky Bites, there

is also a cheese menu for the cheese enthusiasts and it is served with a selection of bread. Chrisitan Kirk, the assistant manager, mentioned that the lunch menu at Sky Bar is very popular, and follows the concept of Sky Bites, but with more traditional Nordic lunch dishes such as marinated herring, smoked mackerel from Bornholm, tatar and cured duck breast. Champagne is usually the drink of choice with the lunch menu, which is popular with corporate clients and visitors to the Bella Centre exhibitions.

Sky Bar is a restaurant that has it all: great views, a perfect location, easily accessible thanks to the Metro ride. Not many restaurants in Copenhagen can boasts views of the city like this, fine food that is unpretentious, cosy lounging, and a rich selection of drinks. It is difficult for any restaurant or bar lounge to please everyone, but Sky Bar seems to have got it right with a great selection of food and drink presented in a chic ambience.

A legacy that should never have been bourne ARUN SHARMA

The Bourne Legacy (11)

Dir: Tony Gilroy; US action, 2012, 135 mins; Jeremy Renner, Edward Norton, Rachel Weisz, Stacey Keach

Premieres August 16 Playing nationwide


HILE REMAKES, prequels and sequels have almost always unashamedly represented the cinematic equivalent of a ‘cashing-in’ mentality, they at least tended to be the exception rather than the rule, and were often based on a tangible awareness that the original had been ground-breaking or had captured the imagination of a generation. In recent years however, Hollywood seems to have blindly escalated this trend to such an extent that one wonders if they have abandoned the idea of original storytelling altogether, retraining their writers to use nothing else on a keyboard other than copy and paste, and replacing their creative energy with marketing executives and product designers, employed solely to repackage back catalogues and invent new and creative ways of selling reworkings so we don’t know we’re being had. Enter the world of legacies, reduxes, reloads, director’s cuts, final cuts, costume designer’s cuts, and honestly-the-last-cutever cuts. Of course the impending threat of a lucrative revenue stream drying up is a worrying thing for a studio primarily concerned with the bottom line, and so it was no great shock to hear that this latest incarnation was imminent. Enter The Bourne Legacy, an ABBAinspired Björn-again copycat band of a film, without Matt Damon as Bourne, without Bourne himself, and without Robert Ludlum providing the source material. Crucially though, and this is

Renner hit the breaks when he realised the fine for riding without a helmet has been bumped up to 700 kroner the thinly-veiled trickery of selling to a semi-conscious populous with low expectations, the branding machine has been bombarding us with the Bourne tag − the Bourne trilogy is screening this week on Danish television − and Renner scuttling across rooftops with his Bourne-backpack and haircut could easily be mistaken for Damon if you suspend your disbelief long enough, squint hard enough and want it badly enough. Bourne is also regularly referred to in photos and conversations as the plot clumsily links to The Bourne Ultimatum (that ten-year-old passport photo might well have the second most

screen-time after Renner himself ). As for the rest of the cast from the trilogy – Albert Finney, Scott Glenn, David Strathairn and Joan Allen – they simply flitter across the screen with unseemly haste at regular intervals, just to keep the illusion going a little while longer. This is not to say that Renner is unworthy of the role, as he does well enough portraying another haunted operative who, like Bourne, is as much a victim of the top level dastardly deeds as a covert super-agent. He is ruthless, rugged and restless, fighting personal demons as well as those thrown at him

by Uncle Sam. Weisz also makes for a fine new sidekick as a scientist turned accidental action hero, while Norton is suitably snarly as a ruthless CIA boss out to eradicate the entire band of dysfunctional man-machines. It is thus the old hand that causes the problems in this somewhat floundering instalment. Series screenwriter Tony Gilroy supplants Paul Greengrass as director, and the loss of momentum is palpable. Gilroy is a fine writer, but without the discipline of an action veteran like Greengrass to rein him in, he too often indulges his weakness to over-pontificate.

It is hard to think of another franchise entry that works this hard to justify its own existence. The irony of course, is that a decent action film is justified by decent action, and The Bourne Legacy simply does not deliver on what should be its primary goal (other than raking it in at the box office – which it has certainly done). It has been rumoured that this may well just be a link between the previous instalments to a sequel in which Damon’s Bourne will himself return, but despite that possibility, this particular link is as missing as it gets.

Romcom with a dose of hipster angst Take This Waltz (11)

Dir: Sarah Polley, Can romance/ drama, 2011, 116 mins Michelle Williams, Seth Rogan, Luke Kirby, Sarah Silverman Premieres August 16


ITH THE Oscar-nominated 2006 feature film Away from Her, Canadian actress Sarah Polley made a career-changing transition from actress to criticallyacclaimed writer-director – the only true kind of director, according to Quentin Tarantino. Behind the camera for the sec-

ond time, Polley here confirms her interest in – and remarkable eye for – the paradoxical ways in which adults communicate. She has a knack for wonderfully absurd comments at critical moments and emphasising how her characters deal with the quiet desperation of everyday life. That was evident when an old man lost his Alzheimer’s-stricken wife to a mute invalid in Away from Her. And it is evident here. On the face of it, things are going well for Margot (Williams), an attractive woman in her late 20s. Happily married to Lou, a dependable, good guy (Rogen at his best), they live in a bohemian Toronto

neighbourhood. She’s a journalist, has some issues with her leg – and some with anxiety – but she lives with it. He writes cookbooks, his next one being exclusively about chicken (to mildly amusing effect). They tease each other, wrestle affectionately on the kitchen floor, make love. Only, for Margot the spontaneity has grown old, and there is less and less for them to say to each other. As she grows increasingly melancholic, Lou turns to his chickens. On a business trip Margot meets Daniel (Kirby), a complex, charismatic charmer. Dark but gentle, he’s the classic threat to a dependable, good

guy like Lou. When Daniel turns out to be single, interested and her neighbour, the situation seems a no-brainer for Margot. That is, if she had the courage to follow her instincts. Sometimes love at first sight comes with a lot of false starts, moral twinges and emotional anguish. This atmospheric, bittersweet film takes a good hard look at what long-term relationships do to love, sex, and our self-image. Gorgeously shot and skilfully acted, it should be respected for its candour (including visual) and for avoiding nine out of ten of the genre’s clichés. KASPER R GULDBERG

The Dark Knight Rises Total Recall (11) (11) Dir: Christopher Nolan; US action, 2012, 165 mins; Christian Bale, Tom, Hardy, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Anne Hathaway With the arrival of Bane (Hardy), a terrorist hell-bent on ‘liberating’ Gotham before reducing it to rubble, Batman (Bale) is forced out of exile to once again take on the role as Gotham’s Dark Knight. Nolan retains the delicate balance of building a credible reality while remaining respectful to the comic book origins, and as he departs from the Batman franchise he leaves his reputation as a master filmmaker and the general state of comic book cinema in the best shape they’ve ever been.

Martha Marcy May Marlene (15) Dir: Sean Durkin ; US thriller, 2011, 112 mins; Elizabeth Olsen, Sarah Paulsen, Hugh Dancy Watch a brilliantly underplayed Olsen give her debut in this instant cult-status masterpiece directed by Sean Durkin.

Albert Nobbs is not without an audience, but it’s far more likely to find it on primetime television than in selected cinemas. MW

La Délicatesse (7) Dir: David Foenkinos & Stéphane Foenkinos; Fra romance, 2012, 108 mins; Audrey Tautou, Francois Damiens, Joséphone de Meaux Despite some shining moments, including an excellent leading man and a tastefully underused Parisian backdrop, this French rom-com remains above average but not outstanding. Audrey Tautou is her usual self, looking confused and exhausted most of the time, while other actors are criminally underused. FP

Weekend (11) Dir: Andrew Haigh; UK drama, 2011, 96 mins; Tom Cullen, Chris New, Jonathan Race, Laura Freeman Andrew Haigh’s second feature moves away from the potential pigeon-holing of gay-themed cinema and towards a universal terrain of desire, hope and disappointment. It occasionally edges towards the clichés of romantic comedy, however the director deftly steers clear of a crowd-pleasing easy-option resolution, and keeps the film rooted in a reality that squarely and knowingly avoids being larger than life and instead focuses on the quirks and textures of contemporary British life.

Eddie: the Sleepwalking Cannibal (15) Dir: Boris Rodriquez; DK/ CA comedy/horror, 2012, 90 mins; Thure Lindhart, Georgina Reilly, Stephen McHattie Painter Lars Olufssen (Lindhart) takes to the Canadian wilderness to find his inspiration. Watch as he becomes artistically aroused by his sleep-walking roommate’s cannibalistic activities. This Danish-Canadian, horror-comedy amalgamation has some absurdly funny moments, but secondrate dialogue and a flimsy plot turn turns this could-be stellar flick into an average one. MW


The Amazing Spider-Man (11) Dir: Marc Webb; US action, 2012, 136 mins; Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field Webb’s reinterpretation of Spider-Man is a little premature, but the movie holds its own with a fresh script and a talented cast. Here’s a Spider-Man the girls will actually want to sleep with! LD

Free the Mind (11) Dir: Phie Ambo; Den doc, 2012, 82 mins; Richard Davidson Danish documentary following Dr Richard Davidson, the world’s leading brain scientist, as he attempts to teach three traumatised individuals how to change their personality through meditation. Thought-provoking with shining moments, though a scattered focus makes it too messy to fully enjoy. LL

Snow White and the Huntsman (11) Dir: Rupert Sanders; UK/ US action, 2012, 127 mins; Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ian McShane In a twist to the fairy tale, the huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to kill her winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen. But unfortunately, this overlong retelling of a Grimm fairy tale is short on magic. MH

ENTOURAGE, with its relentless jokes about masturbation and the Hollywood inner circle, has finally run its course – although there is talk that a movie will round off the story in late 2013. So the final season, the eighth, isn’t really a finale after all – it’s just the warm-up. Can’t wait … Still, bitching men can be extremely funny, and Johnny Drama and Ari Gold are comedy gold. And its format is more preferable to that of a sitcom in which all the characters have comic flaws to signpost what’s going to happen. But if you dispense of these conventions, you need to give your characters depth or they’ll just go around in circles. By season four, it had settled into the same format every season – like a reality show.

Don’t let that put you off Top Shot in which top marksmen fire off against each other – like Survivor but with live bullets. It’s unashamedly one for the boys. Just like Frederick the Great and the Enigma of Prussia (DRK, Mon 20:50 & Tue 18:55) is one for the historians. It dumbs nothing down, offering a fascinating take on a ruler whose thinking helped shape the Germany that twice took the world to war – 150 odd years after his death. The miniseries The Sinking of the Laconia (SV2, Sat 17:30) and TV drama Spanish Flu: The Forgotten Fallen (SV1, Sun 22:45) take us back to the first one, or thereabouts, but neither set the world alight.

Elsewhere, Pinter’s Progress (DRK, Tue 15:40) explores the playwright’s legacy with the help of luvvies; Mishal Husain meets Mazlan Othman (BBC World, Sun 15:30) is mainly about the Malaysian space programme; Infamous Assassinations tackles Anwar Sadat (DRK, Mon 21:50); there’s another SV2, Wed 21:00 Entourage chance to watch the return of Dallas (SV4, Mon-Wed 21:00) in case you missed it in July; we’ve got the 2009 edition of Hell’s Kitchen UK (TV3 Puls, Sun 06:55); Kidnap and Ransom (SV1, Sun 21:00) is back for a second season; and watch Secret Access - Air Force One (DRHD, Sun 23:15) Britney Spears – femme fatale (SV1, Sat 22:40) to learn more about what’s inside Barack’s plane and Britney’s brain.
