inside this week


SOME WILL no doubt be awaiting the Oscars (see G20 for details on when to watch the highlights on TV) with trepidation, praying that A Royal Affair can claim Denmark’s second Oscar for best film in a foreign language in three years, but who are they trying to kid?! It doesn’t have a hope. The favourite, the Austrian film Amour, is 1/50, which in layman’s terms means you would have to bet your house to win a garden shed. It’s never going to happen. Still, with The Hunt nominated for the Golden Globes – it didn’t win, ‘Amour’ did – the prospects look good for next year. Providing the Oscars are on television of course. Because I smell a conspiracy. The Golden Globes, BAFTA and Critics Choice Award, by awarding Ben Affleck with their best director awards, have all drawn attention to what a misjudgement it was by the Oscars to leave the artist formerly

known as one half of Bennifer off their own list. And now, heading into Sunday, Affleck’s film Argo is 1/7 to claim the gong, meaning that Affleck will win an Oscar, but as producer not director, and very possibly deliver the final speech of the ceremony. How will he be able to resist the temptation? If you discount the preSecond World War ceremonies, which more resembled a country club luncheon than anything else, only one director of the best film award has failed to be nominated: Bruce Beresford for Driving Miss Daisy in 1990. So does this mean the Oscars will lose their prestige? Not yet, but nothing lasts forever. The West has a tendency to be blinded by its self-importance and cry outrage when things we’ve grown up with are threatened (football clubs are a good example), when in the bigger scheme of things, they’ve only been around for a micro-second. Elsewhere, it’s pretty quiet out there. Look out next week for more details of the Puppet Festival (see G8), which starts on Thursday. It might not have the glitz of the Oscars, but at least it’s upfront about its strings-attached approach.

Torvehallerne, frederiksborggade 21, Cph K; Tue-Sat, tours last two or four hours; tickets 300-600kr, non-tasting children: free adm,, 5012 3654; walking distance: 4km; dietary or religious requirements must be expressed in advance NORDIC CUISINE is kind of a big deal. This is not only true this month, with the winter edition of Copenhagen Cooking in full swing as part of the Wondercool festival and people getting eye level with the gourmet end of food. It is true more generally, and has been for several years. Take Noma. The sheer amount of press generated by that restaurant particularly, not to mention its international, awardwinning fame, is a testimony to a general excitement surrounding Nordic food. And whereas a few years back Copenhagen had little – or at least much less – to offer the gastronomic community, today it contains more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other Scandinavian city. That is to say 12, by the way, of which Noma was last year the only one with two stars. If you share some of the interest, and if you appreciate good food and artisanal drinks in the shape of informal qualitynibbling and quaffing, then the Copenhagen Food Tour is a wise investment. If you also happen to be the least bit curious about the city of Copenhagen and its history, breweries and entrepreneurs, then it’s a definite must-go. A multifaceted experience, this sure-footed and versatile introduction to Danish gastronomy, culture and history stirs both the senses and the sensibilities. And it packs a few jokes too. The Food Tour is structured around a guided 4km walk around the city, starting at the centrally-situated Copenhagen Market Halls near Nørreport Station, and two or four hours later the city’s rich history will be nearly as unforgettable to you as what you’ve just tasted. Interesting culinary facts will deepen your appreciation of Danish cuisine and its mouthwatering delicacies (including Danish wine, beer and gourmet candy), and if you’re new to the city, you’ll soon be a whole lot smarter. And it’s not just the city. Denmark’s more remote and rural regions will appear on your awareness radar, providing a feel for the whole country that’s rarely to be had on more generic guided walks. Quite probably, you’ll soon be hankering for the paradisiac island of Bornholm (way out east past Sweden) or sending fond thoughts to the heart of Jutland, which is wine country

Performance Carmen

Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; ends March 20, performances Mar 3 (15:00), Mar 6 (19:30), Mar 11 (19:30), Mar 14 (19:30), Mar 20 (19:30); tickets: 125-895kr,, 3369 6969; 225 mins with intermission; sung in French with Danish supertitles This particular production of Carmen by Scottish director David McVicar premiered at the Royal Danish Theatre three years ago and now it’s back to lift your spirits during the dull, dreary winter. Georges Bizet’s classic opera is full of steamy Spanish passion, eroticism, raucous stage scenes and familiar songs that will have you swaying on your haunches. CS

Tasty morsels for the food tourists, and not a hint of horse

and the Danes’ only link to the continent. Part of what distinguishes Danish and Nordic cuisine from other traditions is the emphasis on local ingredients and an appreciation of natural produce more or less as it comes. Excellent pork, seafood from the North or Baltic Sea, native game, wild mushrooms, fresh fruits and berries are all handled quite gently in order to preserve an inherent and original intensity of taste. Rye is as crucial to the preferred type of bread as that bread is to Danish culture and tradition (as the four-hour tour will demonstrate – and if you aren’t already a rye devotee there’s a good chance you will become one). Preparation is typically fairly straightforward, the results often healthy. Less is more in the Danish kitchen – unless of course you’re really hungry. The users at rank the Copenhagen Food Tour as the fifth most recommended Copenhagen activity out of 28. I can see why – the insights from the tour guide (ours was named Maria) are fascinating and memorable, and being a highly intelligent and skilled communicator, she is amply equipped to answer whatever questions come up along the way. Each member of my group of nine people seemed to find something to marvel at, comment on, converse about or commit to memory. At no point was there a lull, a deadend or a gap in the programme. Quite the contrary: the surprises kept coming.

The Devils of Loudun

Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; ends March 26, performances at 20:00 (unless stated) on Wed, March 5, March 12, March 19, March 24 (15:00), March 26; tickets 125-895kr; 120 mins without intermission; English with Danish subs Krzysztof Penderecki, who is best known for writing creepy atmospheric music for films like The Exorcist and The Shining, wrote this eerie opera as a protest against the repression of the Poles during the communist era. Based on Aldous Huxley’s novel, Penderecki swaps communism fervour for 17th century religious fanaticism, telling the story of a priest accused of violating several nuns. Arranged by the KGL’s former artistic director Keith Warner, it is a sinister, unforgettable opera. BH

The micro-brewed beer from Nørrebros Bryghus was pure genius as a follow-up to the ambrosial open-faced sandwiches from Aamann (without tasting these, don’t leave the country), and a glowing sense of wellbeing became evident on everybody’s face. The food sampling locations, which vary ever so slightly according to season, were intelligently picked, diverse (ranging from gourmet cheese to ecological, high-quality fast-food), rich in history and often quite picturesque. A little bit like Danish design, Nordic food can be seen as an artform whose aesthetic criteria are both traditional and subject to constant challenges and revision. Things got rolling about ten years ago when some of the world’s leading professional chefs hammered out the much talked-about ‘New Nordic Kitchen’ manifesto following an 18-hour symposium. Several of the dogmas are clearly also upheld by everyone bringing the Copenhagen Food Tour to life, including this: the aim to express the purity, freshness, simplicity and ethics that Danish chefs wish to associate with their region. Enough talk! Food should be eaten and enjoyed – so get thee to an eatery. But before you go, remember this important advice: come on an empty stomach. There’ll be more than enough food to sample.

Cirque du Soleil: Alegría

Forum, Julius Thomsens Plads 1, Frederiksberg; ends Sun, performances Thu 20:00, Fri 17:00 & 21:00, Sat 16:00 & 20:00, Sun 15:00 & 19:00; tickets 465-665kr,; www.cirquedusoleil. com High on the buzz of starring in an upcoming 3D film by James Cameron, Cirque du Soleil’s collection of circus artists and theatre performers bring you Alegría. A baroque-inspired celebration of youth, Alegría means joyful in Spanish and its evolving fantasy universe is aptly inhabited by minstrels, beggars, king’s fools, elderly aristocrats, children and clowns. The company delivers all the expected circus tricks – synchronised trapeze, fire and knife dancing, contortion routines and the Mongolian art of hand balancing – but with added class. VE



Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; ends March 1, performances on Fri, Sat, Tue, Wed, Thu, March 1; tickets 200kr; duration: 125 mins; For just 200 kroner, you get to see two short ballets (José Limons’s macho Native American stomp The Unsung and Wayne McGregor’s acrobatic Chroma) and excerpts from La Bayadere, which is returning in March after a winter break. Given that all the seats are the same price – from the stalls to the galleries – you might snatch a couple of seats that would normally set you back more than 1,000 kroner. The programme, back for a third successive year, is well-chosen to both introduce novices to the ballet and please regular ballet-goers. BH



22 - 28 February 2013 Leigh Ledare, et al

Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Nyhavn 2, Cph K; ends May 12; open Tue-Fri 11:00-16:00, SatSun 11:00-17:00, Weds 11:0020:00; tickets: 60kr, under-16s free adm; LEIGH Ledare is a Seattleborn artist who primarily uses photography – but also video, archival material and text – to explore taboos, social relationships and human agency. In a relatively short period of time, he has been able to create an already impressive body of work. This exhibition draws inspiration from his most famous series, Pretend You’re Actually Alive (2000-2008), which explores the various sides of his mother’s personality – reality and fantasy – through the use of explicit photography, portrait and text. The result of an eight-year collaboration with his ageing ex-ballerina mother, we are offered a no-holds-barred portrait in which his mother demonstrates a defiance and a vulnerability from one image to the next. It is clear why she was a fêted ballerina in her day; a true American beauty with an unapologetic bohemian bend, she has boyfriend after boyfriend of her son’s age and is very comfortable with her body. After

Shakespeare’s Women

witnessing her vulnerable and defiant side, even though these are photographs created by her son, she appears unafraid to allow him to see her sexual self in a series of portraits in which she is naked, legs akimbo, happily touching herself or even engaging in intercourse with her current boyfriend. The opening piece, directly related to Scandinavian affairs, is An Invitation (2012), in which the wife from a well-connected family commissioned nude portraits from Ledare. Upon request to create a series with the portraits, the couple had Ledare sign a contract to protect themselves. The photographs are set against the front page of the New York Times on the same day in which he took each portrait, complete with a reflexive note from Ledare. The first piece was shot on the same day of Anders Breivik’s attack in Norway. The notes allow us to understand the developing relationship between Ledare and his subject, in which we glimpse his reluctance to direct his subject, allowing her to objectify him by his unwillingness to objectify her. The last major part of the exhibition is Double Bind (2010). Ledare convinced his ex-wife, Meghan, who was about to marry another photographer, to hide away in a cabin in upstate New York for a few

This is the mystery Barry McKenna and Ian Burns clarify in Shakespeare’s Women. Set in 1613, days after the fire that destroyed the Globe Theatre. Shakespeare is adapting Chaucer’s The Knight’s Tale, turning to his previous female creations for inspiration, but he is burnt out. “Records of Shakespeare’s life are hard to come by and we thought it would be fun to try and put ourselves in his shoes,” writes Burns, who himself will be playing Shakespeare. The production plays on memory and imagination as the Bard is haunted by visions of his most popular female characters. AA

days in which he took about 500 photographs. He then asked that her new fiancé do the same. The resultant 1,000 photographs are set against either black or white backdrops: black being Ledare’s images and white being the fiancé’s. The outcome is an exploration of how Meghan’s body language responds to the camera lens depending on who is behind the camera. In Ledare’s portraits, she wears a constant weariness in her gaze and is very self-contained with only the odd rare smile. In her fiance’s portraits, an easiness and loveliness shines through, as well as a sexual self that is comfortable with nudity in front of a lens. Other and smaller pieces are also in exhibition including Alma, a collaboration with a three-year old child; Upon The Death of My Grandfather ... (2008-2011), a strange gift from his grandfather; Personal Commissions (2008), in which he explores the world of amorous newspaper ads; Collector’s Commissions (2008, ongoing) in which the photographer is the subject; and videos: The Gift (2007), his mother’s unsuccessful attempt at soft-porn thwarted, and The Shoulder (2007), a touching moment constructed.

Even Oedipus wouldn’t do this





22 - 28 February 2013

More shallow soap opera than brainy biopic MARK WALKER

Hitchcock (11)

Dir: Sascha Gervasi; US drama, 2012, 98 mins; Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Danny Huston, Toni Collette Premiered February 21 Playing nationwide


T BECOMES evident fairly early on that Hitchcock will not, rather disappointingly, be the biopic that we are promised in the trailer – as can so often be the case. There’s barely a single film about an artist that doesn’t follow the usual formula of taking one of the said artist’s relationships and dissecting it, often largely ignoring the body of artwork that has brought them to our attention in the first place. Even the brilliant Francis Bacon biopic Love Is The Devil by John Maybury (1998) is guilty of this crime. Hopkins himself has starred in several such films, most notably Surviving Picasso, the Merchant Ivory production in which he shines as the eponymous painter/sculptor/ceramicist. Predictably in Hitchcock, we have less ‘The Making of Psycho’ – or at least what there is of that is largely perfunctory – and more something that might have been retitled ‘Alma and Alfie’. Admittedly the artist and his muse were often inseparable, which this film would have us believe is the case here. World-renowned film legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) met Alma Reville (Mirren) when she was a successful editor and he was working as a lowly assistant. At the time, she was his boss, as we discover during the course of the film. Their turbulent relationship and subsequent love quadrangle featuring writer Whitfield Cook (Huston) and Hitch’s leading lady Janet Leigh (Johansson) form the main body of the film. A shame, then, that it’s all so anaemic. The catalyst for the film’s events

Unsurprisingly, the only Oscar nod Hitchcock snagged was for make-up and hairstyling

begin with a premiere screening of Hitchcock’s North By Northwest, after which a member of the press asks Hitchcock if it isn’t time, at the age of 60, to be retiring his megaphone for good. Hitch decides that this is the consequence of Hitchcock ‘branding’: all the things that the name Hitchcock has become synonymous with. It was time to make a new kind of film: something unpredictable, something unexpected. Intrigued by the story of notorious serial killer Ed Gein, as it was being reported, Hitch soon happens across Robert Bloch’s novel ‘Psycho’, from which the fictional story is

derived. Convinced that this should be his next project when all those around him are in doubt, Hitch has to finance the film himself, even going so far as to remortgage his house. Like everyone else, his wife Alma remains unconvinced by the material, but has faith in the man himself. Portrayed here as a mountain of support for the great director, Hitchcock’s wife, as we’re led to believe, was an active partner in his filmmaking – from advising him financially to rewriting scripts. During the shoot, when the stress becomes too much for Hitch, she orders him to his sickbed and heads down to

able combined acting arsenal, but alas – despite managing to inspire the occasional smile, even firepower as admirable as theirs cannot disguise material that would fail spectacularly in the hands of lesser talent. Instead of perhaps delving into Hitch’s fascination with the Ed Gein story, showing us something of why the filmmaker was drawn to the material (what was Hitchcock’s relationship with his mother?) the script is content to languish on the surface of things, in an ultimately dull, lightweight, soap opera exposé of Hitch’s private life.

It’s less painful than Twilight, at least Beautiful Creatures (11) Dir: Richard LaGravenese; US drama/ fantasy, 2013, 124 mins; Alice Englert, Alden Ehrenreich, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum Premiered February 21 Playing nationwide

U You’ve got a little something on your nose there, Alden

the studio to take charge of the situation. Hopkins and Mirren both play their roles with relish – when they’re allowed to. There’s a touching scene early on when Hitch talks of their early experimental filmmaking days by way of asking for Alma’s support on Psycho, to which she concedes, clearly against her better judgment. Here the actors’ chemistry and their characters’ mutual respect shines through the uninspired writing. Much of the film plays like this: Hopkins and Mirren do their damnedest to elevate a mediocre script with their consider-

SING THE supernatural as a metaphor for the woes of teenagedom and depicting adolescent alienation as glamorous or noble are popular gimmicks nowadays, as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Twilight films have shown. Film connoisseurs will typically lament that the blockbuster potential of such films seems even

higher if the antihero protagonist exudes what the relevant fan community will consider true inner values, which so often is represented on screen by plenty of outward charm and great looks. Beautiful Creatures (based on the bestselling novel) appears marred by similar teenflick clichés, and that’s unfortunate because it will turn many away from a genuine experience. Okay, we’re not talking unforgettable here, nor is this an important or genre-renewing film, but it isn’t half as dullwitted as one might fear. It’s well shot and has undeniable substance. The acting is above par, and you’ve got to love the guffaw-inducing dia-

logue. The film itself even has a bit of soul. It scorns ultraconservative, God-fearing narrowmindedness and celebrates various counter-culture trailblazers. Taking its opening cues from a typical high-school ‘meet cute’ scenario, Ethan (Ehrenreich) meets Lena (Englert). None of them fits in – he because he hungers for nonconformity, she because she is a ‘caster’ (a kind of witch), troubled by her uncontrollable, violent powers. Puppy love, however, transcends all incompatibility – until Ethan learns that Lena will soon be claimed by either good or evil forces. It could be either. It’s regrettable that the mythological logic behind

Lena’s destiny remains so incomprehensible to the uninitiated viewer. For unsurprisingly, Ethan and Lena wish to get to the bottom of this, to fight for their love – or die trying (Ethan, at least, is mortal). The film’s otherwise graceful style is cramped a bit as the audience is thrown by the dark intricacies. But then there’s the interesting portrait of the Deep South – a nice touch – and Ehrenreich’s performance, which carries most of the film. Whether the film does it for you will, in the end, I suppose, depend on where you direct your attention – to the confusing supernatural backdrop or to the energy, humour and humaneness.

22 - 28 February 2013

New this Week Pitch Perfect (15) Dir: Jason Moore; US comedy/musical, 2012, 112 mins; Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson Pitch Perfect looks and sounds exactly like every other musical comedy that features a singing or dancing competition. Kendrick plays a music-mad college freshman caught in a war between her university’s rival singing groups – and unfortunately, her performance is about the only redeeming factor in the film. The show-stopping numbers help offset its predictability, but ultimately, the film is a not-so-funny musical comedy that is more tone deaf than pitch perfect. JH

The Human Scale (15) Dir: Andreas Dalsgaard; Den doc, 2012, 83 mins Does the way cities are built allow for human inclusion and intimacy? How do we measure the scale of happiness in a city? While life in the world’s modern megacities is both enchanting and erratic, Danish architect Jan Gehl questions whether a humanistic mission is missing from our cities. Filmmaker Andreas Dalsgaard follows Gehl as he asks these questions and examines human behaviour in cities across the globe from New York to New Zealand to New Delhi. JH

Book Your Tickets Django Unchained (15) Zero Dark Thirty (15) Dir: Kathryn Bigelow; US action/drama, 2012, 157 mins; Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, James Gandolfini, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt The most unnerving, brilliantly acted thriller of the year, Zero Dark Thirty boasts an impressive inventory of ferocious visuals, an endlessly mesmerising performance from actress Jessica Chastain and a script that mercurially bulldozes any narrative clichés and instead offers punchy, naturalistically delivered political dialogue. Remorseless and torturous the film may be, but you won’t be able to stop watching. LR

The Master (11) Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson; US drama, 2012, 137 mins; Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern The Master is one of the richest, most visually arresting and intellectually engaging films of recent times. While there are unmistakable references to scientology, the film is, at its core, universally applicable as a study in the exploitation of vulnerable peoples and the cyclical nature of subjugation. The film’s gorgeous Technicolor hues and flawlessly nuanced performances create an experience that will likely stay with you for a long time. MW

Dir: Quentin Tarantino; US action/drama/western, 2012, 165 mins; Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L Jackson Tarantino’s eagerly anticipated pastiche of the western epic is a bold, throbbing, exuberantly crafted piece of work – one that rattles cages with a vengeance. The film manages to conduct a joyride through old Dixie while simultaneously building up to a passionate climax steeped in heartbreaking romance and pacifistic, moral indignation. And while the Tarantino trademarks are aplenty, the film doesn’t buckle under their weight. KG

The Impossible (15) Dir: Juan Antonio Bayona; Spa drama/disaster, 2012, 114 mins; Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin The Impossible, based on the real-life experiences of a family caught in the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, rarely lets up the pace. It is sometimes hard to watch as the characters are severely and relentlessly battered by the water and the all-encompassing hopelessness that follows after the wave hits. The work pays off tenfold, resulting in a tough realism that no doubt informs the performances and the emotional clout of the entire film. See this, and then go and hug your kids. MW

Avoid like the Plague A Good Day to Die Hard (15) Dir: John Moore; US action/crime, 2013, 97 mins; Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sebastian Koch, Cole Hauser Bruce Willis, presumably due to a clause in his contract with the Devil, returns as New York cop John McClane for the fifth time to battle evil terrorists. Coarse and monotonous where its predecessors were clever and complex, it’s no exaggeration to call A Good Day to Die Hard the worst film of the seemingly never-ending series. Perhaps most worrisome of all is the knowledge that the suffering is far from over and the franchise will continue. DS

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (15) Dir: Tommy Wirkola; US action/adventure, 2013, 88 mins; Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Zoe Bell, Peter Stormare It’s difficult to interest a viewer in this clunky, self-satisfied slice of CGI and 3D-enhanced horror comedy. Grown-up Hansel and Gretel sleepwalk through the motions as tough, sexy icons of medieval bounty hunting when they’re commissioned to rescue several children kidnapped by witches. Weapon aficionados will appreciate the gore, but if you happen to like your mashed-up entertainment with just a touch of intelligence, this isn’t the film for you. KG


Gangster Squad (15)

Lincoln (15)

Dir: Ruben Fleischer; US action/crime, 2013 113 mins; Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte This film is little more than a weak-wristed remake of Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables, offering such a mirror-image set of the characters that one feels genuinely offended by the lack of effort. Furthermore, Gangster Squad doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up: on the one hand highly stylised and precise, it also possesses allusions to pulp and pastiche. Untouchable is certainly a fine way of regarding the film, but if you do insist, a barge pole is highly recommended. AS

Dir: Steven Spielberg; US drama, 2013, 150 mins; Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader Lincoln is a well-formed and morally ambiguous study of character, principle and politics. It is often overly nostalgic about history, but confidently and even humourously refuses to shy away from the contradictions of its subject matter, and gratefully Spielberg has chosen collaborators who rise to the challenge of offering a contemporary lesson in the ways we have shaped our times, for better or worse. AS

Also Playing Warm Bodies (11) Dir: Jonathan Levine; US romcom/horror, 2013, 98 mins; Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco, John Malkovich If you were expecting a stereotypical zombie film, you won’t find it in Warm Bodies, but you will instead find a romantic comedy. The film attempts to be a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, and merely substitutes a zombie for Romeo. Ironically, for a genre that is usually terrifying, Warm Bodies isn’t actually scary, and the premise of the film is ridiculous. The film attempts humour, but only succeeds at monotony and bland characters. LD

Beasts of the Southern Wild (11) Dir: Benh Zeitlin; US drama/ fantasy, 2012, 94 mins; Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easterly, Lowell Landes Based on the play Juicy and Delicious by Lucy Alibar, this film adaptation is essentially a charming children’s coming-ofage story – a moralistic fairy tale told through magical realism. Protagonist Hushpuppy’s dedication to her father is as heartbreakingly beautiful as young Wallis’s perfectly cast face, but the film’s occasional dabbling in sentimentality, along with an overbearing score and an overreliance on voiceovers prevents the film from achieving the transcendence it aims for.

ANS KNOW Slash best for his top hat, perched upon a bed of messy black hair, and signature guitar riffs in classic hits like ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’, made famous in the ‘80s by rock group Guns ‘n’ Roses. But while the curls remain, these days that’s about the only thing that’s the same about the iconic guitarist. After eleven years with Guns ‘n’ Roses, he left the band in 1996 due to personal issues with frontman Axl Rose. Shortly thereafter he formed


Slash’s Snakepit and then rock supergroup Velvet Revolver, but in 2008 he ultimately struck out on his own to pursue solo projects. In the years since, the guitarist has made a point of leaving his earlier days far behind him – even establishing rules prohibiting journalists from asking about Guns ‘n’ Roses or Axl Rose, and demanding that interviewers focus on his forthcoming events and plans. “Since I grabbed the reins and took off on my own, I have realised you don’t need confrontation and volatility to make rock ’n’ roll work,” Slash explained to the New Zealand Herald. “It’s about playing music and having fun.” Slash’s first solo album, a self-

titled effort that debuted in 2010, has been referred to as ‘Slash and friends’ due to the high number of collaborations on the record – a list that includes Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas and Iggy Pop. But its follow-up, Apocalyptic Love (2012), is pure Slash – that is, other than his new touring band, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, who feature heavily on the album. On working with Kennedy, Slash explained it was merely a matter of finding a group he meshed well with. “I had gotten so used to such a tumultuous reality that I was really inexperienced working in a situation where everybody just wants to get along and have a good time,” he

pointed out. “It takes a lot of the unnecessary bullshit out of the experience – I work harder now than I have ever in my career. But at the same time, it’s really enjoyable, because everybody’s on the same page. We just focus on the music.” After years of conflict with bandmates, the collaboration with Kennedy, Slash said, happened almost serendipitously. “You never know when you are going to have serious chemistry,” he told The National. “That’s what happened when Myles and I hooked up together, which happened by chance.” “I had never heard him sing before, but I knew of him,” Slash went on. “We hit it off right away − same with the other guys in the band. It was almost

a ‘meant to be’ kind of thing.” Recent months have found Slash circumnavigating the globe to promote Apocalyptic Love – a tour that will bring him to Copenhagen this weekend. Speaking after the third European leg of an over-100 show tour, Slash said he works to bring new flavour to each concert. “I try and make it a point to have every show seem like it’s the first show of a tour,” Slash told Gulf News. “I do not rehearse what I am going to say and repeat what I say every night. We even mix up the songs. The set lists change from show to show.” “It’s important to feed off the vibe, because every show is going to be different,” he went on. “It’s important to have the freedom to change it around a

little bit so that it feels right for yourself. Otherwise, the audience picks up [on the fact the performance is not genuine].” Needless to say, the rocker has enjoyed his new-found freedom in recent years, onstage and in the studio. “You know, when I started doing this it was a dream come true, and I still look at it that way, but the last few years have been great because I’ve been doing exactly what it is I like to do and not having too much hassle doing it,” he said. Slash’s show at Falconer Salen is currently sold out. However, you can visit to join the waiting list for tickets. JESSICA HANLEY

Emergenza Festival

Rust, Guldbergsgade 8, Cph N; 19:30; 90kr Tonight is yet another round of this year’s Emergenza Festival – both Denmark and Europe’s biggest music competition, which takes place in a total of 150 cities across the world. This neverending festival showcases both the best and worse of Denmark’s new music, with bands fighting it out in an ultimate ‘battle of the bands’ competition that will ultimately lead to a major record deal and tour of the US. This is a big deal for Denmark’s music industry and definitely something that will lure in the musicians in town.

Salif Keita

Amager Bio, Øresundsvej 6, Cph S; 21:30; 400kr Descended from royal Malian lineage directly from the warrior king himself, Sundiata Keita, Salif Keitra has carved out a career in music and been a major supporter of the burgeoning Malian music scene in the capital city of Bamako. He joined the Rail Band in the early ‘70s, relocated to the Ivory Coast, and the group rebranded themselves as Les Ambassadeurs Internationaux. The highly charismatic group began to make waves beyond the continent of Africa. Now 63 years old, Keita’s broad discography promisis intrigue and diversity and is sure to attract more than just his fans.

Akalé Wubé

Global Cph, Norre Allé 7, Cph N; 21:00; 70kr (60kr students) Playing what they have labelled ‘Ethiopian funk’, this Parisbased world music band hearken back to Ethiopia’s so-called golden era of the ‘70s. Playing a combination of French hip-hop and jazz, the eclectic world music outfit have even wowed Rolling Stone magazine, which in a feature on the group contended that their “cocktail of vintage jazz-funk Ethiopian music is the UFO that will make us regret that the aliens have been so discreet all this time”.

Malene Mortensen

Jazzhus Montmartre, Store Regnegade 19A, Cph K; 20:00; 295kr This fantastically gifted female Danish jazz vocalist is one of Copenhagen’s rising stars. Her latest album, You Go To My Head (2012), mixes Mortensen’s own compositions with standard jazz repertoire, creating an intense and groovy experience. Having performed alongside some of the biggest names on the European jazz circuit and crept into the top 10 in both Scandinavia and France, the 30-year-old has the stamp of approval from Copenhagen’s jazz society, with tickets quickly running out for this evening’s gig.

Thank you for selecting to fly to Berlin with us Review Modeselektor


February 14 Store Vega


erlin’s Modeselektor showed just why they have shone so brightly on the electronic music scene for such a long time with a gig of epic proportions at Store Vega on Thursday night. Their stage antics were accompanied by a fascinating light show by visual DJ and design collective Pfadfinderei – a detail that added aesthetic genius to a brilliant musical performance. Sebastien Szary and Gernot Bronsert got together in the early 1990s in a Germany still coming to terms with the collapse of the Berlin Wall. They played acid house and trance music gigs to hordes of anarchic Berliners in a now-united city. Since then, the duo have gone on to produce music alongside the likes of the city’s ‘first lady of electronic

music’, Ellen Allien, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, who is a fan of Modeselektor’s experimental electronic sound. As the lights dimmed following a warm-up set from Benjamin Damage, Szary and Bronsert appeared behind an instrument panel that resembled the complexity of a Boeing 747 cockpit. The duo got the flight off the runway with the bouncy track ‘Grillwalker’ off their 2011 album Monkeytown. After drifting into a monotonous ascent pattern early on with what seemed like a routine, pre-programmed track list, Modeselektor found their groove as the show reached its cruising altitude. The eager crowd was served a feisty series of heavily-edited singles and album numbers that got everyone going. Modeselektor draw from a diverse range of musical influences, ranging from hip-hop and glitch right through to driven techno. This eclectic background was made abundantly clear throughout the show. At one point, songs such as the piledriv-

Lille Vega; 20:00; sold out A south London native, Jessie has made an exciting debut on the British pop scene. With a diverse set of singles performing well in the charts, and a perky resume that includes performing as a backing singer for Man Like Me and Jack Penate, the beat-heavy melancholic soul dance singer seems set to make big waves on the festival circuit this summer. Although tonight’s appearance is already sold out, there can be no harm putting the word out in the hope you get your hands on a pair of tickets.

According to Gernot’s left hand, Szary is a crusty’s flip-flop

er-like ‘Kill Bill Vol 4’ gave the impression that one was at an early ‘90s rave in the Midlands of the UK. At other moments, hip-hop lyrics accompanied by fat, squelching bass lines were the order of the day, as tracks such as ‘Monkey Flip’, a 2011 single made in collaboration with Kenyan hip-hop artists Nazizi and Abbas, gave the crowd a break from its crowd surfing and mosh pits. Midway through the show, Szary found the time and space to weave away from his instruments and towards the front of the

stage, spraying the crazed front row with water. The trick was repeated later on by Bronsert, only this time with champagne, which seemed to do anything but cool down the eager crowd. With the show coming to a close, Modeselektor eased towards land once more with a performance of the bass-heavy and soulful track ‘Berlin’. It had everyone swinging along and swaying from side to side, capping off a memorable return to Denmark for the veteran electronic musicians. Allan Mutuku-Kortbæk

Rust, Guldbergsgade 8, Cph N; Fri 23:00; 60kr Rust is Nørrebro’s largest nightlife establishment, with a handful of emerging acts playing gigs during the week and several nightclubs open until the early hours over the weekend.

Cody Chesnutt

Loppen, Sydområdet 4B, Cph K; 21:00; 160kr Although it’s quite likely that few readers will have heard of Cody Chesnutt, who hails from Atlanta, his concert will be one the best shows in town this week. With the backing of BBC Radio 6, Cody Chesnutt’s ‘70s funky pinstripe suit sound belongs to the annals of pop history. Gracefully delivered by his weathered voice, the simple themes and the majesty of Cody’s debut album, Landing on a Hundred (2012), have been welcomed as a breath of fresh air among the more produced, pop-based music that floods the charts. Daniel van der Noon Despite electronic music becoming more polished, Boddika’s raw brand of electronic music has given contemporary electro a dressing down. Out with the laptops, premixes and other streamlined material – this performance is all about bringing back more raw live material, with little more than a set of high-spec decks. Lifting his name from one of the antagonists in the 1987 film, Robocop, Boddika’s dark, renegade, and science fiction inspired mixes fit the bill and have the backing of the DJ community, from here to Melbourne.

Stengade, Stengade 18, Cph K; Sun 22:00; 50kr After ten years in action, Ruba’Dub still remains Copenhagen’s biggest reggae gathering. This week, Stengade boasts a special session that includes the usual Ruba’Dub crew, in addition to a few extra acts: Klumben, Raske Penge, Ham Der Hasse, Mighty Mala and Mikael Melody.

Rock on … with rock cakes, runes and castle ruins! I WAS SURPRISED to find the Puppet Festival from February 28 until March 3 is for adults only. That’s worth knowing! It’s certainly a bit cold for running about in your birthday suit like the puppet on the website. In fact it’s so cold right now that the ground is rock hard and that inspired the theme for this week … rocks. Rock bottom I like rocks – probably because I grew up on the coast – so we often go for seaside scrambles. One day my partner and I took my boys to the Zealand Peninsula, told them to be careful and let them relatively loose. They found lots of lovely climbing rocks dotted along the sand and also spotted some chalk. How creative! It wasn’t a long walk, but I suddenly realised it was a quiet walk. And that spelled trouble. Looking a little closer, I was horrified to see a trail of naughty chalk drawings on rocks stretching back the way we’d come. The little tykes were teasing me! It took me half an hour to draw underpants on all the cheeky pictures. And when I finally straightened up, I saw three uniformed officers from the local radar station watching me with amusement from up on the cliff. Goodness knows what they thought! By then the guys were halfway back to the car … still giggling. Rock ‘n’ roll castle ruin Rock cakes are a tasty indoor treat. Building a castle out of milk cartons etc is great fun too. See how at helendyrbye.

22 - 28 February 2013

Left to ferment - a surefire way to enjoy Lent



Fermentoren Halmtorvet 29C, Cph V; Open Mon-Wed 15:00-00:00, Thu-Sun 14:00-02:00

IF YOU’RE THINKING about buying a new car this year, you can’t go wrong with a compact hatchback. This class of car keeps on getting better and better – here are three of the best to look out for in the showrooms, showreels and streets in 2013. Volkswagen Golf VII: 1.4 TSI 140HP DSG7 Highline Frederiksborgvej 47-51, Cph NV; 345,996 kroner There are few cars out there on out roads that pride themselves on following the same basic recipe generation after generation, but Volkswagen is one of them. Familiar as it might look, the new VW Golf is said to be “the newest since 1974” (when the first generation was introduced). Bigger, smarter, more economical and breathtaking when it comes to looks, that short description of VW’s latest release in the compact class does not seem so daring. I have just spent a week getting familiar with this fine piece of German engineering and I found it not so different from the Audi A4 that is currently on the market. The body is without a shadow of a doubt yet another refinement on the Golf theme, while the interior lets you easily forget you are supposed to be sitting in a mid-range car. All the materials used are high quality. What is really striking is the influx of new technologies. The DSG7 coupled with the eco-friendly 1.4 TSI (140HP) engine make for the perfect companions on any kind of road.

Kids See My Shadow W ZeBU, Øresunds- NE vej 4, Cph S; started today (Thu Feb 21), ends March 9, performance times vary; tickets 120kr, children 50kr; Imagine that your shadow suddenly gets its own life and does not follow your movements as it should, as if you had ended up in a computer game. This is the challenge for the girl in this performance dance piece played out to music by cellists Soma Allpass and Lisbeth Diers. Suitable for over-6s. TM Okker Gokker Det Lille Teater, Lavendelstræde 5-7, Cph K; ends May 5, performances Tue-Sun − times vary; adult tickets: 120kr, concessions: 60kr, under-25s: 50kr,; suitable for 2–4 years This musical play is especially designed for the smallest members of the family. It’s full of old Danish rhymes, limericks and songs with plenty of visual aids to help captivate the audience, young and old alike. Lille Teater specialises in children’s pieces, and this play is designed to introduce Danish culture to the audience by performing old favourites, such as the stories of Okker Gokker and Bro Brille. BSM

The Golf VII − what an imaginitive name!

Ford Focus: 1.0 EcoBoost 100HP Andersens Biler, Energivej 4, Ballerup; 219,990 kroner Ford is a unique car manufacturer in the way it manages to tailor-make its cars to suit each continent’s needs so perfectly. It is easy to forget, at least in Europe, that it is not in fact German but American. The first Focus provided more proof of how well it knows the European market, and its third generation edition continues this tradition. Comfortable and spacious, the roar of the tiny engine made me feel like I was sitting on top of a V6. But there is a downside to being American: the cheap feel of the materials inside, a higher consumption than what you would want, and technology that is not so up-to-date. Toyota Auris Hybrid H2 Toyota Danmark A/S, Dynamovej 10, Gladsaxe; 289,990 kroner The Japanese carmaker has caught the biggest wave in terms of hybrid technologies, so it is only natural, I reckon, that it takes advantage of it. The new Auris certainly has the upper hand: it looks great and screams of novelty! Its hybrid technology’s biggest plus: unlike most fuelefficient engines, its biggest fuel savings come where you need them most – in the heavy city traffic.

Film for the Small: NEW Chip and Dale Øbro Jagtvej Library, Jagtvej 227, Cph Ø; Thu 10:15; free adm; registration required - visit A free half an hour of cartoon fun for your kids (providing they can get the time off school). TM Glaspusterens Børn Teatret Zeppelin, Valdemarsgade 15, Cph V; ends Mar 13, performances Mon-Sat − times vary; adult tickets: 165kr, concessions: 105kr, under-25s: 95kr;; suitable for 7 years or above Written by celebrated Scandinavian children’s author Maria Gripe, Glaspusterens Børn tells the story of two siblings Klas and Klara, who are abducted and locked up in a gloomy house in Ønskeby. They are held captive until heroine Flaske Midtvejr and her trusty raven ‘Hin Kloge’ come to the rescue, resulting in an epic fight of good vs evil. BSM HC Andersen’s ‘Tællelyset’ Danish National Archives, Rigsdagsgaarden 9, Cph K; until March, 09:00-16:00; 3392 3310, Tællelyset, believed to be HC Andersen’s first ever fairytale, was recently discovered in a shuffle of papers at the National Archives. It is now on display until the spring. AS


TUCKED AWAY at the far end of Halmtorvet, you’d be forgiven for missing this little gem of a basement bar. Set back from the street, this hyggelige establishment fuses the candle-lit rustic charms of a classic pub with a smart, uncluttered Scandinavian sensibility. Attracting a blend of clientele, from bankers to artisans, their range of home-brewed beer and carefully-selected imports cater to a broad range of tastes. Emphasis is placed on a passion for excellent beer without deviating from their modus operandi: to demystify the business of beer appreciation. Proprietor Søren Wagner would rather a punter take time with himself or staff to discover a beer that suits their tastes than just ordering blindly in an attempt to appear knowledgeable. “There’s nothing worse than listening to people who have no idea about wine talk about it as if they do,” he says. “With our beer, I want to create an environment where that doesn’t need to happen. No-one’s being judged. If people want to drink a simple pilsner, we have that. If, on the other hand, they’re feeling more adventurous, I’d hope they’d not be frightened to draw on our knowledge and try something new.” The beers I’m recommended − particularly the tart Purple Haze IPA, musky Troubadour Blonde, and sweet, cidery Rodenbach − are all excellent, brewed with a care and precision that you’d swear you could taste. There’s also a small but expertly chosen selection of whiskeys.

Water – a world of adventures Experimentarium, Tuborg Havnevej 7, Hellerup; open Mon-Fri 09:30-17:00, Tue 09:3021:00, Sat and Sun 11:00-17:00; under 2s free, age 3-11 105kr, adult 160kr, students 105kr; contact 3927 3333 or This water adventure features more than 50 activities and experiments. But don’t be afraid of getting your clothes wet as this is a “bone-dry ride through the wet element”. You get to fight the power of the sea, save someone who has fallen overboard from a ship and experience giant surf waves. MSØ Snuggle up at the flicks Reprise Teatret, Øverødvej 12, Holte; 4542 1026; www. Reprise Teatret is a cosy contrast to large modern cinemas. Among the historical furnishings and plush seating you’ll find row four has twin seats where kids can cuddle up. Like many cinemas, it has a weekly babybio showing for parents with babies. The soundtrack is often dwarfed by babies gurgling, but that’s fine if you’re watching The Hobbit. To find out what’s on visit for a list of all Danish cinemas with ratings and comments, and then book your tickets at – remember that ‘original tale’ means it has the original English, French etc soundtrack. HD

The perfect pit-stop after a hard day’s shopping at Fisketorvet

Clearly Wagner and his partner are doing something right. The bar is full during my time there: there are smartly dressed, older male punters sitting at the bar, casually dressed young people elsewhere and couples. On the walls there’s a dart board and some poster art that betrays Wagner’s penchant for classic ‘70s music. You get a sense that music is almost as important to him as beer. When one thinks of the more established independent brewers such as Nørrebryghus, their branding is trumpeted inside and out of the building: an signal that you’re entering a disneyland mecca for beer drinkers and perhaps all the more impersonal for it. The contrast between that approach

Tom Noddy’s Bubble Magic Experimentarium, Tuborg Havnevej 7, Hellerup; ends Sun, performances Fri-Sun at 12:00, 13:00, 15:00, & 16:00; Tickets: under-12s: 108kr, over-12s: 165kr; Tom Noddy has a career that many children (and adults too for that matter) dream about: professional bubble blower. He has mastered the art of creating bubbles inside of bubbles, smoke bubbles, clear bubbles, clear bubbles inside of smoke bubbles, yin yang bubbles, and a variety of other enchanting bubble constructions. Noddy is considered the world expert on soap bubbles and the science behind them, and he dazzles his audiences with a combination of humor and skill. Noddy is performing at the Experimentarium every day of the week until Sunday February 24. Witness bubble-blowing like you’ve never seen before! AA Story Time Books & Company, Sofievej 1, 2900 Hellerup; Tue mornings 09:30-10:00; free adm; www. Every Tuesday morning, storyteller Sara Albers performs stories, poems, and finger plays. She entertains, inspires and captivates kids’ imaginations, making Tuesday mornings a magical experience for all. SA

and the distinctly homely atmosphere in Fermentoren is very noticeable − and perhaps no accident. Still only 29, Wagner worked as a brewer for Nørrebryghus during the period in which he acquired his brewmaster’s qualifications, but way before that he was making his own experiments by constructing a brewery in his parent’s basement. Wagner exhibits a distinct lack of pretension, a sense of fun and adventure and a welcoming aura that are reflected in his bar, making Fermentoren a business venture to watch and a bar that’s easy to recommend.

ICE SKATING Various venues in Greater Cph Barring heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures and an all-clear to skate on the Lakes, here are the artificial rinks where you can realise your fantasies! Blågårds Plads Blågårds Plads 1, Cph N; open Mon-Fri 10:00–21:00, Sat 11:00–18:00, Sun 11:00–17:00; free adm, skate hire 40kr per hour (rental of skates stops one hour before closing); 3535 7770,; Skate at this historical and charming venue surrounded by Kai Nielsen’s early 20th century statues of crafts and artsmen.

Toftegårds Plads Toftegårds Alle, Valby; open until Mar 31, Mon-Fri 11:00– 22:00, Sat–Sun 10:00–22:00; free adm, skate rental 45kr per hour The ice rink at Kongens Nytorv will be closed until 2018 due to the ongoing Metro works. However, the City Council has finally upgraded Toftegårds Plads, revitalising it with a 1,500 sqm ice rink. The nearby Valby Culture Center sells hot chocolate and drinks. MAR Medical Museion Medical Museion, Bredgade 62, Cph K; ends Fri, open Fri 12:00-16:00 Tickets: adults 50kr, under-16s: 30kr; www. The Medical Museion is worth a visit if you have potential future doctors and surgeons at home between the ages of seven and 12, who are into all things grisly. How does it feel to have a real cranium in your hands and just how did they deal with a broken leg in days gone by? PS

OOKING FOR a way to make Danes laugh? I think I’ve found just the trick: say ‘smørrebrød’. Maybe my Danish is just awful. Okay – it’s definitely awful. I constantly confuse the Danes when I dare to speak their language. A smile is almost immediately upon their lips, and, after butchering ‘Hvad laver du i weekended?’ I retreat, white flag waving, back into English.


But that shouldn’t hinder me from ordering this region’s delicious open-faced sandwich. It’s about embracing the culture even when that culture laughs, right? I braved the mockery, and I’m glad I did. Smørrebrød is fantastic any which way it’s created (see G13 for the ‘twist’). So go ahead and mispronounce it. Keep trying. I think if you laugh with the Danes at your horrendous attempt at one of

the most difficult languages in the world, you’ll enjoy it as much as they do. Well ... almost as much. Don’t fret, though. There’s much more food around the city, and those won’t put your tongue in a full nelson. Dining Week ended this past Sunday, but the month-long winter editon of Copenhagen Cooking is finishing February with a flourish. Learn a thing or two about champagne, Ital-



ian cuisine or cake grilling. Get some tickets to the Copenhagen Food Fair down at the Bella Center for a wide array of culture and cuisine. And there’s still a chance to get some mussels at Madeleines Madteater. If you’re done with food, we’ve got you covered. Exhibitions, concerts and architecture talks abound. But hurry –Wondercool ends Thursday! AMY STRADA

















A TWIST THAT WILL TURN HEADS SMØRREBRØD WITH A TWIST Restaurant Kronborg, Brolæggerstæde 12, Cph K; ends Thu, closed Sun, 11:00-17:00; tickets: lunch platter 215kr, beer menu 150kr; reservations:;


MØRREBRØD IS about as Danish as you can get. If you enjoy it, you’re in the club. If you can pronounce it, you’re the leader of the club. Denmark has been going through a bit of a culinary renaissance with many restaurants parting ways with classic Italian or French menus and returning to their roots. More than that, some have even begun to play with the idea of traditional Danish foods. And that is exactly what Restaurant Kronborg’s owner Claes Petersen had in mind when he – along with his head chef – created the menu for their lunch special, ‘Smørrebrød with a Twist’. Running all month for Wondercool, the three-course menu is said to be

a play on the quintessential open-faced sandwich. According to Petersen – and simply by perusing their regular lunch menu – Restaurant Kronborg plays to a very Danish audience. Plates like Plaice fillet and drinks like schnapps and bitters infiltrate the menu. Not to mention, the ambience truly speaks to the idea of ‘hygge’. Folded into the corner of Brolæggerstræde and Knabrostræde in central Copenhagen, Restaurant Kronborg is one of those places that hasn’t been changed by tourism. The room feels warm; exposed brick is decorated with a variety of paintings and old art that bring to mind a tavern minus the intimidation. The three-course menu is preempted with four different beers from the local Nørrebro Bryghus, the first of which is a light lager in the style of a Czech pilsner. It’s fresh, and it readies your palate for what Petersen calls a truly Danish meal: Herring with an apple and celery garnish, and freshly boiled cod roe, on top of which is may-

onnaise, lemon and tiny shrimp. It’s heavy but delectable, and it isn’t overpowering in the slightest. Herring isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, and, as Petersen takes away our plates, he notes that he once had guests from the Midwest trying herring for the first time, who looked at it and asked incredulously: “Raw fish?!” After our fill of seafood, we transitioned to a spicier New York lager to prepare us for the next dish: a Rimmed and honey-glazed pork with pan-fried apples and currants, and a Lightly-grilled beef fillet with Dijon and perhaps the most delicious and fresh horseradish I’ve ever tasted. The transition from the lager to the King’s County Brown, a much darker beer, was paced perfectly from the pork to the beef. Our last dish was Vesterhavsost, a hard cheese that farmers from northwestern Jutland had just started to make, and it was complemented by a Spiced quince compote. The final ale

was an IPA that had surprising sparkle and spice, and it was perfect preparation for the rich, sweet taste of the pièce de résistance: the Chocolate macaron. Served with a vintage dessert cherry wine that comes from the Frederiksdal estate on the island of Lolland, the combination of the decadent chocolate and the semi-sweetness of the wine was about as perfect as it gets. Luckily, this menu is running for a few more days – until Thursday 28 February. “We see a lot more people during this month that we wouldn’t normally see,” explains Petersen. “Especially foreigners coming to Copenhagen to dine out.” And it’s no surprise when menus like ‘Smørrebrød with a Twist’ offer such a wide range of both classical elements and unorthodox combinations. By utilising local brews and cheeses and wines, you can really get a sense of what Danish culinary excellence is all about – with a twist. AMY STRADA

AS EGYPTIAN HIP HOP Bremen Teater, Nyropsgade 39-41, Cph V; Sat, starting at 23:00; free adm; “Bizarre” is the first thought that may pop into your head, but be warned: this show has nothing to do with Egypt and nothing to do with hip-hop.

Her debut solo album, Blood Donation, was released in January to warm praise for its melancholic yet playful sound. The evening will also include the duo Cancer, made up of Nikolaj Vonsild and Kristian Finne Kristensen. Their tune is

more folky, and they have described their music as “future ballads from a parallel universe”. The evening should be a great mix of styles. AS DAN DEACON & THULEBASEN JazzHouse, Niels Hemmingsensgade 10, Cph K; Thu, starting at 22:00; tickets: 147kr; reservations:; Dan Deacon offers an electronic, video-gameesque sound and sampling.

Female soloist Majke Voss Romme is behind Broken Twin, and she has been compared to the likes of Feist and Cat Power. Her sentimental melancholy should be an interesting juxtaposition. AS CTM & THE LATE GREAT FITZCARRALDOS Koncertkirken, Blågårds Plads 6A, Cph N; Sat Mar 2, starting at 20:00; tickets: 147kr; reservations:;

Come and see one of Denmark’s rising stars as Cæcilie Trier – under the name CTM – plays her experimental sounds at Koncertkirken. Her solo debut Variations was recently released and is full of new, fun ‘80s pop sounds. It’s a true departure from her previous indie-rock aesthetic. Joining her on stage are the trio The Late Great Fitzcarraldos. Their newest album dropped this past November, and their music is a more chilled take on ‘80s pop with the sporadic sugariness of ‘60s girl groups. It’ll be a blast from the past, so don’t miss out! AS BON HOMME Bremen Teater, Nyropsgade 39-41, Cph V; Sat Mar 2, starting at 23:00; free adm; Tomas Høffding is the bassist and vocalist from the group WhoMadeWho, a collaborative effort that played Wondercool two weeks ago. But tonight he is on his own with Bon Homme, an electro pop project that is sure to create an atmosphere of whimsy and cool sounds. His signature bowler hat is sure to make an appearance. AS

The Oscar highlights DR2, Mon 20:30

NETFLIX AND HBO are brilliant! Easy, peasy, currently a freebie, at least for the next three months. So why bother with TV when you can see anything you like on an iPad? Well almost, as I doubt they’ll be showing the highlights of the Oscars (DR2, Mon 20:30) – the only palatable way to watch an overlong awards show going the way of the FA Cup. Their biggest gaff this year was not nominating Ben Affleck for best director. Not only has he won every other major award, but his film Argo looks set to bag the golden fleece – answers on a postcard for the last time that happened. If this is all news to you, warm up for the show with Talking Movies (BBC World, Sat 12:30 or Sun 19:30). Still, it’s a media storm caught in a teacup compared to Super-

storm USA: Caught on Camera (DR3, Mon 20:00), a storm caught on social media. Natural disasters used to bring out the best in us. In 1912, it was “Women and children first”; in 2012: “Where did I last put my iPhone? But at least it isn’t dumbed down – the main problem with the BBC’s Divine Women (DRK, Wed 22:15), a doc series on the history of women in religion. “Desperate attempts to enliven the narrative – notably by holding a discussion about castration in ancient Rome in what looked like a transvestite bar – struck a discordant note,” observed a disappointed Daily Telegraph. Talking of divine, BBC Entertainment returns to the altar of Steve Coogan with 2009’s The Inside Story (Mon 22:30) and 1998’s The

man who thinks he’s it (Thu 22:00). Elsewhere, British miniseries Parade’s End (DR1, Fri 21:50), which depicts a love affair between a Tory and a suffragette, has divided the critics; doc series Battle Castle (DRK, Mon 20:50) takes a look at six of the most compelling sieges of all time; Turning (SVT2, Fri 20:00) DR2, Mon 20:30 The Oscar highlights considers the cultish popularity of Antony and the Johnsons; watch 2011 giant lizard series, Dinosaurs’ Planet (SVT2, Mon-Wed 18:00), in its entirety; Inside Barclays: Banking on Bonuses (BBC World, Sat 20:30 & Sun 15:30) delivers insights on the banking crisis; while this week’s new films include Harry Brown (SVT1, Fri 22:30), The Dark Knight (K6, Sun 21:00) and The King’s Speech.
