MANAGING EDITOR’S NOTE

We cannot hope to create a sustainable culture with any but sustainable souls.” –– DERRICK JENSEN

Welcome to map magazine’s 146th issue, focussing on some of the wonderful dreamers who are helping to shape the culture and conversation around the food we consume. The sustainability of Australia’s food supply is top of mind at the moment, so much so that the Australian Government is developing Australia’s first ever National Food Plan (NFP). The aim of the NFP is to foster a sustainable, globally competitive, resilient food supply that supports access to nutritious and affordable food. It seems that the consensus from the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is that the current draft plan is considered to be woeful. Together with some

of Australia’s leading thinkers on the topic, the AFSA is drafting a document called the People’s Food Plan (PFP) to present as an alternative to the government’s approach. The PFP is a collaboration of organisations and individuals working together towards a food system, in which people have the opportunity to choose, create and manage their food supply from paddock to plate. One that they consider is the kind of national framework and agenda Australia really needs. Their approach is spot on, and if you hear about an AFSA planning session around your local area, I strongly recommend you get involved. I hope you enjoy the words of our dreamers.

ark WORLD FOOD DAY

––

On a recent trip to Italy, I had the pleasure of spending a few days with an Italian friend and her family in the region of Liguria. The meals I ate during those few days were among some of the best I’ve eaten in a long time, but not because they were intricate, overly complicated culinary masterpieces. In truth, they were wonderfully simple – a few fresh ingredients combined to make a delectable feast. But what made them taste even better was the fact that every meal was enjoyed together with good company and long conversations, surrounded by the beauty of nature. It’s no surprise that the Slow Food movement began in Italy, and it’s something that several of the dreamers in our October Eat issue have cited as an inspiration. So this month we praise the beauty of simplicity in food and in life – enjoy!

Mikki Brammer EDITOR

mikki@mapmagazine.com.au

Sadly, the level of poverty that exists in third-world nations across the globe seems only to be getting worse. In 1981, to raise awareness and hopefully one day come to an understanding about how to end hunger in developing countries, the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) created World Food Day. Falling on October 16 annually, World Food Day focuses on a different theme each year. This year, the day will explore the importance of agricultural cooperatives in helping to feed the world. @ www.fao.org

RETRODREAMER ––

JULIA CHILD

“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”

It was as much her winsome disposition as her epicurean dexterity that endeared Julia Child to the world. Unfailingly passionate about French cuisine, she once described her first meal in France as being an “opening up of the soul and spirit”. Known for enlightening Americans about the wonders of French fare with her recipe books, and TV show The French Chef, Julia dreamed of spreading the joy of cooking to everyone she encountered.

INVITES YOU TO ... THE INTOUCHABLES The meeting of two unlikely spirits can be the catalyst for the greatest adventures. The Intouchables is an uplifting French film inspired by Abdel Sellou’s memoir, You Changed My Life. After his wife is diagnosed with a terminal illness and a paragliding accident leaves him a quadriplegic, Count Philippe Pozzi di Borgo finds himself in need of a caretaker. As he begins to form an unwavering camaraderie with his new caretaker – an unsentimental Algerian immigrant named Senegalese – Philippe rediscovers his thirst for life, while Senegalese begins to adopt a new perspective. For your chance to attend map magazine’s special screening at Dendy Portside on October 16 at 6:30 pm, visit www.mapmagazine.com.au and follow the links. 112 lucky entrants will receive a double pass. Winners will be notified by email. Good luck!

In a creative critique of contemporary industrialisation, Barcelona designer Victor Castanera turned to the hand of nature to create the Areniscos range of crockery. Using no machines, Victor shapes sand on the beach by pouring water to create a hole, then adds an eco-friendly resin that catalyses with the water to create a unique hardened shape in the form of different homewares. @ www.victorcastanera.com

CULINARY // CLASSIC Those who used to sit in the kitchen as a child and watch their mothers or grandmothers cook (selflessly volunteering to lick the spoon), would likely recall the conical Tala Cook’s Measure. British design outfit Broadbase has recently revamped the Tala kitchenware range (of more than 350 products) to acquaint younger generations with the iconic brand. Keeping the nostalgic design of the original packaging but adding a contemporary mix of fonts, Broadbase’s Tala Retro range also features necessary cooking tools such as the sifter and a classic icing syringe set. @ www.broad-base.co.uk

When wandering the streets of a foreign metropolis and finding yourself lost, it can be a chagrining experience having to pull out a map and affirm your tourist status. While a discreet glance at Google or Apple Maps is now possible, a more sartorial solution could be the GPS Shoes by Dominic Wilcox, which have a navigational tool built into their design. But before Marty McFly’s futuristic kicks spring to mind, rest assured that these dapper oxfords feature delicate broguing that leads you to your pre-programmed destination with a gentle (and very subtle) flash of LED lights. @ www.dominicwilcox.com

An exciting thing about travelling is the enticing promise of being able to tuck into a feast of the local cuisine. Indulging her love for food, design and photography, designer Kelly Pratt created the Stately Sandwich Project. Her goal was to create a series of prints that reflected the main sandwich of each of the USA’s 50 states. From New York’s Reuben to Connecticut’s Chicken Parmigiana, each sandwich is laid out as its separate ingredients, with the recipe featured on Kelly’s website. So far, 15 Stately Sandwiches have been immortalised, with Kelly hard at work at the remaining 35. @ www.statelysandwiches.com

A RUSTIC TRIBUTE TO THE JOY OF FOOD

Those who have had to fight for their freedom often experience a newfound sense of creativity once they have achieved their independence. While it may not regularly rate upon the world’s design radar, the Eastern European nation of Ukraine (which regained its independence in 1991) is one such milieu of burgeoning creativity. An archetype of this emerging ingenuity is Tavernetta restaurant, nestled in the Ukrainian city of Odessa on the northwestern coast of the Black Sea. Designed by local architectural collective Studio Belenko, Tavernetta emphasises the philosophy that a simple life is the best life. Warmth emanates from the raw Siberian pine finishes and the traditional stucco walls, with the contrasting textures uniting to create

a rustic ambience that is at once homely and shrewdly crafted. Collections of retro kitchen items act as centrepieces of the decor – a rainbow of KitchenAids perches along the ledge of one wall, their mixing arms raised to attention in readiness, while motley bouquets of rolling pins cluster along another. Elsewhere in the space, old-style colanders, saucepans and copper utensils hang in tribute to the intricacies of cooking. Bathing the space in a charming glow, muted sunlight filters in through the ample windows, providing glimpses to the natural setting outside where verdant trees sway lazily in the breeze. And as evening sets in, retro lamps cast luminous intimacy over diners as they tuck into the lovingly prepared fare, making them feel as though the homely space has been created especially for them.

What is your profession? I produce fine pates, terrines and rillettes, respecting time-honoured traditions. What training or qualifications do you need to fill this role?

What is your profession? I create food for use in TV,

artisan producer/stella may fine foods

food stylist/jaime reyes – food stylist

Whilst my business and marketing qualifications and Certificate III Commercial Cookery (Catering) are a good platform, I’ve found that a small business owner needs plenty of steadfastness and belief. What are the key skills and responsibilities of the role? It’s hands on – early morning starts for production and markets, maintaining food-safety standards, building customer relationships and planning the business’ goals. How did you get involved in your profession? After living in Vietnam for four years, I couldn’t find a pate I liked in Australia. I started making my own and, as demand grew, I took steps towards making it a full-time occupation. Could you break into the industry in other ways? Hospitality and retail are broad and vibrant industries. You could buy an existing business, join an established manufacturer or start something new. What do you hope to achieve within your industry? Uphold a good reputation as an artisan food manufacturer and continue using only natural ingredients. Are you in the industry for the long term? Yes, you can’t just dip your toe in this industry – it has an intoxicating rhythm. What advice would you give someone looking to emulate your success? On difficult days, remember why you started your journey and the customers who love your product. Did you always think you would be in this role? No – growing up, I dreamed of being a school teacher. What was your first paid job? I was a clerk at an insurance broker for three months before the owner did a runner. What would you love to do if you weren’t in this role? I’d be a food and cooking tour guide in Europe and Southeast Asia. What inspires you? Happiness, laughter and gatherings of friends with great food and wine. Who is your rolemodel? Sister Trish Franklin from Loreto Vietnam Australia Program, for her depth of compassion and spirit. What are your words of wisdom? Trust your instincts and stay on your path. If you wake up breathing, that’s a great start to the day.

cinema, advertising, publishing, marketing, packaging, cookbooks and recipe development. What training or qualifications do you need to fill this role? I have previously worked as a chef, and I have a fine arts degree and an interest in art, but the best qualification is a love of food. What are the key skills and responsibilities of the role? A knowledge of food, a thirst to know more and, above all, people skills. You have to listen to clients and interpret what they ask for until you get it right. How did you get involved in your profession? I was asked by a friend to style a barbecue scene for a brochure. I loved the experience and went to university to study fine arts. I also did dedicated food-styling courses in New York City. Could you break into the industry in other ways? All you need is a love of food. It’s a pretty specialised skill set and there are no courses in Australia. What do you hope to achieve within your industry? I couldn’t think of anything better than travelling the world with my family, tasting food and experiencing the cultures of the places that make up this planet. Food is the bond between us all. Are you in the industry for the long term? For the term of my natural life. What advice would you give someone looking to emulate your success? Start on the other side of the world and I’ll meet you halfway. Did you always think you would be in this role? No, but I’m much happier in my skin now as a husband, father and food obsessive. What was your first paid job? Picking up golf balls at a driving range wearing a motorbike helmet and a mattress wrapped around me with bungee cords – I lasted two days. What would you love to do if you weren’t in this role? I’d be a professional surfer. What inspires you? People who follow their dreams not for financial gain, but because they have a fire that burns so deeply within. Who is your rolemodel? People like Carlo Petrini (founder of Slow Food), Stephanie Alexander and Jamie Oliver, who teach us that food really is something special that should be respected. What are your words of wisdom? Don’t read labels … talk to farmers.

Trust your instincts.” – – ALISON SHEEHAN

POSITIVE // TOTE In case you need the occasional reminder of how wonderful life really is, the 100 lb Coal Bag from Best Made Co. will happily oblige. Sturdy is somewhat of an understatement when waxing about the wonders of this tote, which is based on the design of the bags used to haul 100 lb of coal or dirt during the 1920s and is crafted from #6 Duck Canvas. Suggested uses of the handy tote include lugging about your farmers market bounty, discreetly yet stylish storing your dirty clothes in your bedroom or toting a small-to-mediumsized canine. @ www.bestmadeco.com

DISCOVER: //www.thepovertyline.net DESSERT // GLAMOUR It’s a rare occasion (and, frankly, slightly concerning) when someone needs to be coerced or persuaded into eating ice-cream. Regardless, in such situations, the Kkis ice-cream canape glasses by Jakobsen Design would be a handy method of enticement. Resembling delicate glass tulips, the dessert vessels are an impressive means of serving sweets in colourful sugar-infused bouquets. To commence consumption, grasp the long stem and begin licking as if holding a cone, before artfully seizing the last remaining drops with a teaspoon (or, for the less well-mannered, your tongue). @ www.jakobsendesign.com

craft brewer

ADRIAN SLAUGHTER When local lad Adrian Slaughter (pictured right) discovered that his future mother in law was one of the UK’s first female brewers, his life changed forever. Abandoning a finance career that had taken him to London and New York, Adrian returned to Brisbane determined to bring the craft-beer culture he had seen in his time abroad to his hometown. When he and childhood friend Marc Chrismas open the doors to Green Beacon Brewing Company in Teneriffe (next to Campos) later this year, the gents hope to infuse Brisbane with an appreciation for the art of local craft beer. Alongside their selection of diligently crafted ales, the boys will also be serving up share plates of fresh local seafood, signalling the beginning of many a Sunday session to be enjoyed by locals.

I grew up in Brisbane … I went to Churchie and I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2000. I then embarked on a career in finance that, to be honest, I always detested but just happened to be good at. I’d always had a love for brewing … For my 18th birthday, my mates gave me one of those rubbish Coopers homebrew kits and we made some horrendous beers during college. My elder brother … passed away in 2001 and I think that was the catalyst for me to pack it in and take off to the UK. I ended up in Dublin working for the infamous AIG – American International Group – before I was sent to London to work on its trading desk in early 2004. While living in London … my friends and I would always do daytrips to little countryside villages to visit all the English pubs, where there would be all these obscure beers with ridiculous names. I fell in love with that whole culture – the Slow Food movement and everything that came with it. I met my wife Abigail … in London and I soon learned the fantastic news that her mother, Penny Coles, was a commercial brewer in the UK. As you can imagine, it was every guy’s dream. After that, I was more or less always in Penny’s brewery. She’s obsessed with real ale and the culture and basic produce that comes with it –

22 map magazine

T H E E AT I S S U E O C T O B E R 1 2

mm146-p22-23-LOCL-xx.indd 22

all those things that tie into the concept of the Slow Food movement and the philosophy of taking things from farm to plate. It was fantastic. She’d recycle her spent grain from the brewery to the local piggery and then I’d go for dinner at her house and she’d serve pork that had been fed on her spent grain. Penny is one of my greatest inspirations … She was one of the first female brewers in the UK and she’s been at it for more than 30 years. Now that I’m in the industry, I know that it’s quite male dominated, and that it can be difficult to be the new guy on the scene. I can’t imagine what it must have been like for her when she started in a very traditional place like Cheshire in England. I find it so incredible that she stuck with it and became so successful. I began to take brewing more seriously … after seeing it on that commercial scale that was still tangible and hands on. You’d physically put the malt into the mash tun from a grain sack off your shoulder and then stir it through with a big fork. The process seems incredibly oldfashioned, but it’s very exciting in the same right. It was actually in America … that the craft-beer movement really got me. We moved to the USA after Abigail was transferred to Ohio for work and, not long after, I was asked to go to work in New York City. I was working

on this crazy trading desk and the world was imploding around it during the GFC – it was chaos. All the guys I worked with ... had these refillable draught-beer growlers under their desks. It made me wonder why, in a country like Australia that loves beer, I’d never seen them here. We used to go down to this place in Brooklyn … called Sixpoint Brewery, where they’d just have a rollerdoor up on this dodgy street. There would be Wall Street guys in suits next to taxi drivers and guys from the meatworks around the corner. It was something that didn’t exist in Australia – that myriad of people and faces and the culture around the beer. The focus was on knowing which beers were local and I loved that. I guess it was then that things just began to stir in me. I knew I was going to walk away from my job and so when I was offered a voluntary redundancy I jumped at it with both hands. Abigail and I then went and drove around Europe for four months before coming back to Australia. Marc and I have been great friends … since we were about 12, but it feels like forever. He had actually been living in the UK as well, but he came back to Australia to help run the family architecture business after, sadly, both his parents died suddenly within months of each other. By the time I got back to Australia, he was just biding time and I

was looking for something to do in Brisbane, only halfheartedly searching for jobs in finance. And that’s how we got started. It’s easy when you leave Brisbane … to knock it. Or, if you’re from Sydney or Melbourne, there’s often that cultural cringe. But I completely reject that – coming back for me was an eye-opener because Brisbane had completely changed. I love the direction it’s taking but I think we need even more. It’s very hard to tell people … that you’re leaving a finance career to go into craft brewing. The hardest people to tell were the people closest to me, like my dad. These days he’s our biggest supporter, but initially it was tough to fill people with the same enthusiasm that I had for what I was doing. What we’re doing is bold … and it wouldn’t have worked in Brisbane ten years ago. But it seems to me now that the place is ripe. People want this and there’s an understanding within Brisbane’s food culture. So we decided that we were going to just go for it and brew the best local beers that we could.

Now when we tell people what we’re doing … there’s hardly anyone who isn’t inspired by it. It’s completely infectious and that’s what keeps you going when things get challenging. We chose Teneriffe … because the old warehouses there were the only style of architecture that would fit with what we were trying to do. The building we found on Helen Street was perfect. It’s an awesome late-1920s building and we’ve stripped it all back to the original brickwork. Life has taught me … that things can all end pretty quickly – both through personal experience and through Marc’s history. And if I ended up being 65 and still sitting at a desk, it would not have been time well spent. I don’t want to just be making up the numbers – I want to be at the forefront of something. And I can’t think of many better things to do than being a commercial brewer! My advice for the world … is to love your wife and love your friends. Make time for people when they need it because you never know when you’re going to need them to make time for you.

In the culinary realm, some people prefer to cook with strict adherence to a recipe, while others prefer the freewheeling method of trial and error, interpreting the recipe as they see fit. For those who err on the side of precision (not only in cooking but all aspects of life), the Measuring Square Scarf by Sebastian Bergne will set minds at ease when an exact measurement is required. The silk scarf’s pattern is generated by a grid formed when centimetres, inches and degrees coincide, making impromptu measurements a fashionable breeze. @ www.buysebastianbergne.com

DELIGHTFUL // CLUTCH

CULTURAL // FUSION

An unspoken rule of a good clutch is that it is large enough to fit a phone, lipstick, money and your house keys – unless of course you have an obliging date who will graciously keep said items in his pockets. The other important rules are that it be small enough to ‘clutch’ with ease and that it be an eye-catching addition to an outfit. The Ana Locking clutch, by Spanish designer Ana Gonzales, fulfils all the aforementioned requirements whilst also resembling a neatly wrapped gift just waiting to be opened with squeals of delight. @ www.analocking.com

An unusual combination of two cultures can result in a fascinating creative synthesis. Fusing influences from her ItaloHaitian background, Rome-based designer Stella Jean designs refined, precious garments imbued with her sense of multiculturalism. Juxtaposing the ancient traditions of Creole culture with a shrewd Italian sense of design, the resulting collections are unexpected and striking, combining bright splashes of colour with intricate detailing.

One of the long-standing staples of the Aveda haircare range, Control Paste features organic flax seed in its secret recipe, helping coiffures to stay perfectly styled whatever the weather outside may yield.

Annick Goutal scent Gardenia Passion was inspired by a trip the French perfumer once made to Kyoto during the rainy season. As the aroma of fresh raindrops lingered upon gardenia flowers, a heady scent filled the air, inspiring Annick to recreate the scent as a divine perfume that is both rich and subtle.

national dreamer

cinematic storyteller

P.J. HOGAN While an unhappy childhood isn’t an ideal foundation for building a successful life, Brisbane-born, Sydney-based filmmaker P.J. Hogan hasn’t let a dismal upbringing curtail his career. During 30 years of filmmaking, P.J. has learnt that his best stories are his own. Like his first international smash-hit Muriel’s Wedding, P.J.’s newly released film, Mental, is largely autobiographical. P.J. wrote the film primarily for entertainment’s sake, but says its life message, to just be who you are, comes from Toni Collette’s loud-andproud character, Shaz.

P.J. Hogan’s latest film, Mental, is an unpredictable ride, swinging from funny to dark, from sad to profound. Asked how much of the film is autobiographical, P.J. admits: “Pretty much all of it. Actually, a better question is how much of it didn’t happen. It’s based on something that happened when I was young – my mother had a nervous breakdown and was institutionalised. One day we got home from school and she was gone. My dad was running for re-election in local government at the time and said: ‘No-one votes for a bloke whose wife is crazy. You’ve got to keep this quiet. She’s on holiday.’ So that was the official story.” “But then he was stuck with the five of us kids and we were – to be fair to my dad – a bunch of ratbags. We just went to town and ordered pizzas every night and didn’t clean up after ourselves. It was mayhem. So my dad stopped for a hitchhiker on his way to work, and he trusted her to be our nanny because she had a dog …” P.J.’s new comedy follows a similar sequence of events. In Mental, the five siblings are rambunctious girls who are certain they all suffer from some kind of undiagnosed mental illness – they worry that, if they’re not crazy, then they’re just unpopular. Toni Collette plays the nanny, Shaz, who transforms the five girls’ lives by encouraging them to shun conformity and embrace individuality.

T H E E AT I S S U E O C T O B E R 1 2

mm146-p30-31-NTNL-PJ Hogan.indd 30

P.J. explains that the real Shaz – whose character is charismatic, hot-tempered, inspiring and unpredictable in the movie – remains the most inspiring, outrageous and crazy person he has ever met. “A lot of the things that Shaz the character says in the movie came from the real Shaz. We were something of outcasts in our neighbourhood and at school, and she was the first person who said: ‘You may be a bunch of nonconformists, but that’s great. Who wants to be a sheep?’ She was the first person I’d ever heard say something like that – that you should embrace what is eccentric and different about you.” P.J. knows he makes his best films when drawing from his life experiences. It’s the same approach he took when writing Muriel’s Wedding, after struggling for ten years to make films that stuck. “When I sat down to do the screenplay for Muriel’s Wedding, it was the most honest thing I’d ever written because I’d decided that my previous scripts weren’t responding for a reason. So I thought, okay, I’m going to write something that’s personal – that really comes from the heart,” he explains. “So I wrote what I knew about, and that was failure. I wrote a character who was a total failure – Muriel – but who dreamed of fame and celebrity … and that was my lesson I took as a filmmaker. I’d found my voice on that film, which had eluded me before.”

Muriel’s Wedding debuted in 1994 at Cannes Film Festival and was a success in cinemas across the globe. It scooped many awards, including four Australian Film Institute awards (most notably, Best Film), and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay in both the BAFTA Awards and the Writers Guild of America Awards. P.J. didn’t expect Muriel’s Wedding to be so well received. “Its success left me reeling, to be honest. I couldn’t quite believe it. I thought I was the victim of a very cruel cosmic joke,” he explains. It’s astounding that P.J. failed to muster support for the film. “We made Muriel’s on a shoestring budget,” he recalls. “Nobody wanted to make it. We’d scraped the finance together and it took five years to get it made. So I went into it thinking I was just lucky to be making it at all.” Asked how he remained motivated despite the lack of support, P.J. shares: “Throughout my life I’d always been told I was no good. My dad was very good at that. So if I get a kick or a shove I can get back up. That’s one of the pluses of not being praised – you don’t look to other people to validate you. Because if you’re looking for that, well, it’s not enough fuel to sustain a career.” After his Muriel’s Wedding triumph, P.J. was approached to direct My Best Friend’s Wedding in 1997. He accepted the role after his wife and business partner Jocelyn

Moorhouse convinced him it had merit. Jocelyn was right. The film become one of the highest-grossing romantic comedies of all time and was nominated for three Golden Globe awards, including Best Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. P.J.’s transition into filmmaking was a natural one because he loved films as a young boy. Movies provided an escape from his unhappy home and school life. He didn’t realise film school existed until he stumbled across a handbook for the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in his final year of school. “And that for me was like finding the Dead Sea Scrolls,” P.J. recalls. “I had no idea that such a place existed. I thought it was too good to be true.” P.J. applied to the AFTRS and was asked to submit a screenplay. He didn’t know what one looked like, but knew he could write. He tracked down a screenplay of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid at his local secondhand store and pored over the pages. He submitted a short comedy script to AFTRS and was accepted in 1981 at age 17. He recalls that he was young and naive about the world of film, unlike his classmates

Jane Campion, Alex Proyas and wife Jocelyn, who “went there knowing what they wanted”. Upon graduating, P.J. struggled to find his place in the industry. “The film school was just an extraordinary time for me, but after that I graduated into immediate unemployment and had to scrounge for a living and basically live that life for ten years before I came to Muriel’s Wedding.” Asked his greatest achievement, P.J. doesn’t name his films, but rather his children. “I have four children and two of my kids are special needs – they have autism. And I think what I’m most proud of is that a series of doctors told us our daughter would never speak, but Joc and I refused to believe it. And she speaks. She doesn’t have the greatest vocabulary. But she speaks.” P.J. says making films is his passion. “If you talk to any film director, they will say to you that it’s the best job in the world, and they’re right. I love being on a set. I love to work with actors … But the main thing is I’m a storyteller. I have always told stories to others and now I just get to do it on a grander scale. That’s what I do, I tell stories.”

BJÖRN FRANTZÉN

When Björn Frantzén and Daniel Lindeberg met as young chefs in Sweden, their culinary philosophies clicked, and they floated the idea of one day opening a restaurant together. But some ideas take time to perfect, and it wasn’t until ten years later, in 2008, that they opened the doors to Frantzén/Lindeberg in the heart of Stockholm’s Old Town. A 19-seat locale, where Björn heads up the kitchen while Daniel tends to the bread and pastries, Frantzén/Lindeberg’s menu changes daily, depending on what seasonal produce – sourced locally from their collective of enthusiastic yet eccentric growers – is available on that day.

There are certain stories surrounding Sweden’s most lauded restaurant, Frantzén/Lindeberg, that may seem to flirt with the absurd. The first is that the pigs that are raised for the restaurant’s pork are served a fresh cup of herbal tea each morning. “It’s true,” Björn affirms, laughing. “The type of breed that we use are almost like pets and we believe in treating them as well as possible.” Then there’s the urban legend that the restaurant once served a cheese platter with an accompanying iPod featuring a narration by Swedish leading man, Stellan Skarsgård. “That was in the beginning, in the first six months we were open,” Björn explains. “And we wanted to find a way that wouldn’t make the restaurant seem so stiff – to add a little humour into things. But these days I say the ‘circus’ has moved on.” And what about the a la minute cooking philosophy, which sees guests greeted with nothing but a box of raw bread dough at their table upon being seated? “We leave it sit there for the first half an hour and then we bake it up in an open-fire oven,” Björn says of the process. “While it’s baking, we churn the butter in front of the guests.” It’s clear that Björn, Daniel and their team revel in the element of surprise, so much so that they often surprise themselves with their own gastronomic creations. “I think you’re always bumping into things when you’re a curious chef,”

T H E E AT I S S U E O C T O B E R 1 2

mm146-p40-41-INTNL-Bjorn Frantzen.indd 40

Björn says. “But of the 300 ideas that we might have, maybe ten will make it to the menu. You have to keep coming up with new things, but some ideas will take years to actually develop.” The philosophy that forms the foundation of Frantzén/Lindeberg is simple: nature rules. “It doesn’t matter how good a cook you are; unless you start with great ingredients, you’re not going to end up with a great result,” Björn says. “It all starts with nature – for us it’s really about finding the best ingredients possible. And to be able to do that we needed to start our own gardens and start breeding our own animals.” The restaurant’s menu operates in a ‘carte blanche’ manner, where the chefs work with a list of ingredients based on what is fresh, seasonal and available from their gardens on that particular day. In essence, nature provides the palette from which they create. Björn admits that, in the winter months, a seasonal philosophy such as theirs can prove to be challenging. Chicken is only on the menu once a year due to Sweden’s long winters. “I want the chickens to have spent as much time outside as possible,” Björn explains. “But that’s only possible from April to October, otherwise there’s too much snow and it’s minus 30ºC outside.” (And then there was the time when a fox ate the chickens, so there was to be no chicken served that year.) Still, he clarifies, he and the other chefs

enjoy the creative challenge that the cold climate presents. “Our inspiration really comes from the produce and raw materials that we’re working with. They dictate what’s going to be on the menu and what I’m going to cook.” As the autumn palette now begins to brush across the Swedish landscape, the current menu at Frantzén/Lindeberg is dominated by the remaining stalwarts of the summer produce, along with the various mushrooms that are emerging with the cooler season. Part of the reason that Björn and Daniel can be so creative with the produce they are given is the intricate web of farmers, fisherman and growers that the duo has painstakingly grown over the years. What they all have in common, Björn says, is an open mind, a sense of wonderment and an unbridled passion for nature and its bounty. “In order to do what we do, you need to be very open-minded and very curious and you also need to feel as though nothing is impossible. And in the case of our producers, I think freaks attract freaks,” he laughs. “We need these kinds of freaks around us and they need us, so it’s a healthy relationship in that way. There’ll be a lot of people along the way telling you that it isn’t possible to do certain things.” Despite the naysayers, Frantzén/ Lindeberg has quickly found success, earning two Michelin stars, as well as being labelled the ‘One to Watch’ in last year’s iteration of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants.

This year they made the list itself, coming in at number 20 – the highest-ranking Nordic restaurant behind the overall winner, Noma. While Björn and Daniel have their eyes on a third Michelin star, they have no plans to expand the restaurant from its 19 covers per day. “It’s all about remaining in control of things,” Björn says. “The smaller the restaurant is, the more control you can have.“ One of the greatest challenges they currently face is being able to achieve economies of scale. “The concept we are doing is great for gastronomy but obviously the philosophy is very expensive,” he reveals. “You just need to do the maths – 13 chefs and 19 covers. We’ve never run into any problems in doing what we are doing, but it’s certainly not for a profit.” Fortunately the restaurant’s unique approach is a big attraction for gastronomic tourists, with 60–70% of the restaurant’s custom coming from people visiting Stockholm to sample their cuisine. As for the rise in popularity of Nordic fare over the past few years, Björn attributes it to the fact that they have more room for creativity. “With places like Italy, France and Spain, there are all

these great traditions in their cooking. But we don’t have that in the Nordic countries, so it’s kind of like having a blank page to work with. There’s no-one coming and telling us what we can and can’t do. We can be really open-minded and that gives us the opportunity to really push things.” Björn is most proud of the fact that the restaurant has kept the same staff for almost the entire four years it has been open. “It’s been such a quick journey for us and the staff has to work long hours and work very hard, so it’s been an achievement to keep everyone. We’ve only had one chef leave us in that time, which is pretty unique for this kind of industry.” The duo’s ability to live in the moment and not dwell on potential problems is fundamental to their success – and defines Björn’s general approach to life. “I told myself really early that the worst thing that can happen is that things become all screwed up and then you start all over again,” he says. “I promised myself that I would never put myself in a situation when I was sitting there as an old man thinking ‘What if?’ Never regret anything – just do it.”

FLORAL // While the fabric of modern society presents few

opportunities for a young lass to enjoy the courtship of a charming prince, the fantasy of the fairytale princess lifestyle (perhaps without the evil witches and wicked family members) still resonates. Fit for any aspiring princess, this demure and sweetly fragrant arrangement of pastel blooms from Perrotts Florists is a little burst of colour that wouldn’t look out of place in an opulent palace.

LA SALA DEL PRADO

QUEENSLAND ART GALLERY, STANLEY PLACE, SOUTH BANK T. 3840 7303 www.qagoma.qld.gov.au

Established during long, rambling centuries characterised by siestas, monarchies, rich food and wine, wealth and then subsequent hardship, contemporary Spanish culture acknowledges its roots and continues to pulse with the passion of a sultry flamenco dancer. After winding your way through Portrait of Spain: Masterpieces from the Prado, continue your foray into Spanish culture at La Sala del Prado. An extension of the exhibition, La Sala del Prado is a space that acts as a drawing room, tapas bar and performance venue. Warm hues, inspired by contemporary Spanish architecture and accentuated by pops of bright colour, are strewn throughout the space, while a colourful still-life composition

nestled alongside a tapas cafe summons curious visitors into the lounge. Visitors can channel their inner artist by sketching a scene from the still-life display of fruits and vegetables, or have their own photograph taken and imposed onto one of the exhibition’s portraits. Complete your journey through the lounge by meandering towards the Sala Cafe, where you can feast on plates of tapas, sip Spanish wine and try your hand at Spanish card games. Visit at 12:30 pm each day to hear a Spanish guitarist pour his soul into the strings of his instrument – playing music from classical to flamenco – or come on selected Saturdays to attend talks on contemporary Spanish culture.

A well-loved cookbook is easily identified by its perpetual dusting of flour, dog-eared pages and stains left by butter-soaked fingers busily leafing through pages to verify a measurement. An avid collector of cookbooks, Julie Tjiandra of Scrumptious Reads is continually inspired by the history and science of food that can be found within the pages of a good food bible. The latest incarnation of Julie’s culinary library now resides on James Street, where tomes abounding with information on everything from the science of baking to the art of French cooking snuggle against one another in a carefully arranged succession of colour and shape. Partly a food library and partly a haven of knick knacks and

An apple tree installation with books spiralling up the trunk greets visitors and acts as a connection between the beautiful books and the origins of produce. Moving deeper into the shop, you discover small details – from embroidered tea towels to cake stands – with which to personalise a cooking space. At the back of the space is a large bookcase shaped as a capital ‘R’, where an array of books flows into its curve, beckoning the curious to pluck a gourmet volume from the shelf and discover a new recipe.

With the local craft-beer scene now flourishing, Tippler’s Tap provides a space where beer lovers can appreciate their favourite tipple. After moving from San Francisco to Brisbane in 2008, owner Brian missed neighbourhood craft-beer bars. Teaming up with friend Carl (formerly of Nectar) years later, Brian’s plans have come into fruition. Local and international craft beers flow through 11 taps, while the bar fridge hosts a larger selection of brews. A homely mix of furniture welcomes parched visitors and a menu of Chicago-style comfort food curbs hunger. Resident pigeon, Vlad, keeps watch to ensure any unruly antics are kept in check.

Escaping to a remote cabin huddled in a rambling forest to sip on warm coffee while ensconced in a good book would be a dream retreat for many. Lined with astroturf, decorated with a mixture of new and secondhand furniture, and bathed in sunlight, Two Trees Espresso Bar is the wilderness that surrounds West End fashion haunt The Happy Cabin. In addition to the cafe’s selection of snacks and sweets, a toast station where you can perfect your butter-to-Vegemite ratio is also at the ready. Once breakfast is prepared, find a seat and enjoy a Mambo Coffee. A picket fence and horde of potted trees are part of plans to grow the forest.

For a community to flourish, it requires a patchwork of locales to bind it together. After dreaming of opening a cafe for years, Shelly McCann of Cafe Auchenflower found herself in the midst of a spiral of unplanned events that culminated in the fulfilment of her long-held dream. Since opening, the homely cafe has become a local gathering point. Family-favourite recipes including Gran’s Countrystyle Savoury Mince are scattered throughout the menu, children have their own drawing table, and the cafe’s chairs can also be taken into the neighbouring park. Settle in for a cup of BlackStar coffee and a homestyle breakfast at this quaint spot.

The mountain of dishes to be tackled at the end of a night is rarely an enjoyable task, so anything that makes it a touch more pleasurable is always welcome. PLANET LUXE Dish Wash belongs to an extensive family of eco-friendly cleaning products crafted from botanical blends of organic herbs, plant extracts and pure essential oils, and is toxinfree, biodegradable and friendly to animals. Imbued with Kakadu plum, rose geranium and lemon myrtle, this variety of dish detergent is bound to reduce the dishwashing blues. @ www.planetluxe.com.au

Gluten-free baking has become an art in itself lately, meaning that the menu options for those who eschew gluten have become far more enthralling. American brand Domata has long been manufacturing gluten-free flour for cake-loving wheat avoiders, but only recently has it revamped its packaging to cater for aesthetes who like to keep their pantry looking sharp. The range includes Recipe Ready Flour, Pizza Crust Mix and Seasoned Flour, meaning that no baked feat remains impossible for the gluten intolerant. @ www.domatalivingflour.com

Since pasta takes pride of place in their national cuisine, it’s really no surprise that the Italians have crafted somewhat of a shrine to showcase the beloved ingredient. Buona Idea!, a collaboration between Italian design studios Sand & Birch and Blueside, is intended to showcase the pasta it contains whilst also keeping it fresh. The handcrafted kitchen storage item is created from blown borosilicate glass with a plastic base and will make its design debut at MAISON&OBJET in Paris in January. @ www.sandbirch.com

PLAYFUL // POPCORN During a movie date, a shared box of popcorn can be the catalyst for that first electrifying brush of hands. But it can also lead to embarrassment when, upon leaning in for that goodnight kiss, your date notices a pesky hull wedged between your teeth. Helping to prevent such faux pas, Pipcorn is a new brand of hulless organic popcorn from New Yorkbased outfit, Pipsnacks. The nostalgic yet playful packaging is the handiwork of designers Freddy Taylor and Noah Collins, and was inspired by 1850s wooden hand-painted signage and the American grocery bag. @ www.freddytaylor.co.uk

TO MAKE

Put the butter in a 22x16 cm flameproof ceramic or glass dish and put it in the sun, on top of the heater or on the stovetop to melt. Crush the biscuits in a food processor or blender. Add to the butter and mix well. Press firmly and evenly onto the base of the dish. Whip the cream until fairly stiff. Add the condensed milk and whip to incorporate. Now for the magic – quickly whisk in the lemon juice and see how the mixture thickens! Scrape out over the biscuit base and level the surface. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set. When ready to serve, take the dish from the fridge and cut into not very big, loose squares. If the base seems too firm to cut, leave it at room temperature for 10 minutes or so and then cut. Serves a family.

Home Again begins with a St Germainesque jazz flute riff that morphs into what could be the vocal stylings of Otis Redding. Instead, the mature yet soulful strains belong to Michael Kiwanuka, the 24-year-old Brit who has spent 2012 beguiling music savants with his contemporary brand of soul. The son of Ugandan immigrants, Michael spent his formative years exploring the intricacies of various musical genres such as soul, folk and jazz. A change from the style of folk that has gained prominence of late, Home Again is a reflective, romantic and heartwarming record.

Oft heralded as ‘the French Elvis’, Johnny Hallyday is the decidedly more rock-and-roll stage name of French singer Jean-Philippe Smet. Selling more than 100 million records in his time, Johnny earned fame during the 1960s when he began to sing classic rock-and-roll songs in French (Jimi Hendrix even made his first appearance in 1966 as Johnny’s opening act). Anthologie 1966–69 is a good sample of the Gallic crooner’s work, including a sultry version of sixties classic ‘San Francisco’ and Elvis Presley’s ‘Love Me Tender’.

Mississippi Fred McDowell’s moniker leaves no doubt as to his origins. Fred spent most of his life living in obscurity amongst the backwoods and cotton fields of Como, Mississippi, passing the time farming and by singing and playing his slide guitar for tips on the street. In fact, it wasn’t until well into his fifties that the talented bluesman was ‘discovered’. Live in New York was recorded in 1971, less than a year before Fred’s death, and gives insight into the immense influence of the hillcountry bluesman, whose music has since been interpreted by the likes of The Rolling Stones and Bonnie Raitt.

As the lead guitarist for Radiohead, Jonny Greenwood has become one of today’s greatest manipulators of the six-string. But what is perhaps lesser known is his work in classical music. A composer-in-residence for the BBC concert orchestra, Jonny is also the compositional mind behind film scores including There Will Be Blood and We Need to Talk About Kevin. His score for the 2010 Japanese film Norwegian Wood (based on the eponymous book by Haruki Murakami), explicitly captures the haunting emotions of the story, woven together by lugubrious violin and cello passages.

THE VINTAGE TEA PARTY BOOK

BY KATE GIBBS

BY BEN SCHOTT

BY BOB BROWN

BY ANGEL ADOREE

For ’beginners, daring cooks, when the fridge is bare, parties, snacks, culinary basics, and kitchen tricks and skills’, this is a clearly written book that will appeal to younger culinary novices. As a grand-daughter of Margaret Fulton, the author follows a star, and the result well reflects her apprenticeship both in cooking and as a food journalist. She flows from breakfast to evening dessert, with parties for friends thrown in to round out your day. Colour-keyed corners indicate special recommendations, so maybe start with these first. Happy cooking!

At first sight this is seems to be a reprint of an ancient text, but delve deeper and you will find a fascinating expose of ‘all the facts you ever wanted to know’. If boxing weight limits, palindromes or sneezing don’t appeal, then maybe tongue twisters and sesquipedalia* will satisfy you. There’s humour: ’a for ‘orses, b for mutton, x for breakfast’, World War II postal acronyms, and emoticons, as well as the serious: pop-star deaths, MI5 and its cohort, and ‘I love you’ in 43 languages. A cheerful little book for trivia buffs. *The longest English word is 1185 letters.

Bob Brown reminds me of Mahatma Gandhi, whose Indian presence relied only on a pair of sandals, his spectacles and a simple robe he spun himself. Bob lives in a wooden shack in a remote forest and has given most of his earnings to charity. He reflects the conscience many of us have regarding Gaia. Now he distils his often-inspiring thoughts, outrage at inequalities, and compassion for underprivileged people into a personal account of what he actually stands for. ‘The Earth is the cradle of my existence,’ he writes – a truth we all share.

An imaginative journey into the past, hosted by a red-headed angel and accompanied by six guests. Old things, old clothes and old food abound. There’s also plenty of colour, plenty of ideas and plenty of style. The result is a plethora of old recipes to whet the appetite at an old-style tea party. From the old invitations through to Toasted Chocolate Hearts, Irish Soda Bread and Trout Tartare, you are led to Oolong Mo-tea-to-go, whilst perusing a selection of vintage clothing and, finally, grooming for the sole male at the table. A pleasant book.

THE ANTIPODEAN STEAMPUNK SHOW GALLERY ARTISAN

The steampunk subculture is a selfdescribed romantic endeavour that embraces nostalgia for the industrial age, incorporating 19th-century fashion and the encouragement of invention. In an ode to steampunk, Gallery artisan is hosting an exhibition that features

a treasure chest of creations, made and designed by those who are as passionate about the movement as they are about the arts. Trawl through intricate paintings and photographs, inventions and jewellery that embraces the ethos of steampunk. FROM OCTOBER 26

ENDLESS SPACE

INSTITUTE OF MODERN ART In the realm of contemporary art, the definition of an art form continues to be a point of contention and discussion. Melbourne artist Peter Cripps first emerged during the 1970s and has built a career on his endeavour to challenge traditional notions of art, particularly sculpture. Favouring minimalism and conceptualism, Peter’s work seeks to explore the meaning between objects and surrounding spaces. Endless Space reflects upon Peter’s work as an artist and his exploration of logic and technologies of display. Pieces in the exhibition span his career, from his earliest works in mirror studies to new works commissioned for the exhibition. FROM OCTOBER 13

jazz maestro

SEAN FORAN Young Brisbane pianist, composer and educator Sean Foran is regarded as one of Australia’s leading contemporary jazz pianists. Hailed as gifted and inventive on the keys, he is a collaborator at heart and relishes the spontaneity of performing with kindred musical spirits. Sean writes and performs with a range of artists, including his trio of 13 years, Trichotomy (formerly Misinterprotato). With seven albums to date, Trichotomy intends to continue pushing the boundaries of jazz. A humble soul, Sean is thirsty for new challenges and is excited to that announce Trichotomy’s eighth album is in the works. It was Louis Armstrong who said: ”Never play anything the same way twice,” and it’s an unwritten rule many jazz musicians live by. For Sean Foran, it’s the thrill of improvisation that he loves. “I love the interaction with other people and sharing that moment,” he shares. “A lot of the music is improvised, so it is spontaneous and comes out of nowhere. I love the magic that comes between those people at that particular time. And I love the sound of music – the intangible nature of music.” Like spontaneous speech and breathing, musical improvisation happens intuitively, unconsciously. Sean and his Trichotomy band mates – John Parker on drums and Pat Marchisella on the acoustic bass – have formed a close bond over their 13 years as a trio. Like brothers, the musicians intuitively know and trust the moves the others make during free improvisations. Trichotomy’s upcoming show at Judith Wright Centre on October 13 will see the trio partner with audio-visual artist Andrew Gibbs to create real-time interactions between the music and visuals, giving audiences an immersive concert experience. The new show aligns with Trichotomy’s philosophy to expand the capacities of the conventional jazz trio of piano, bass and drums. “Ever since we’ve been putting out albums and doing gigs together, we’ve always thought we need to keep pushing the boundaries,” Sean explains.

T H E E AT I S S U E O C T O B E R 1 2

mm146-p56-57-LIVE-FACE.indd 56

“A few years ago someone said to me that you really want to keep it interesting for the audiences that keep coming back to see you. It’s not just about playing music again – you want to give them a reason to come out instead of listening to your albums at home. So we want to keep giving people a reason to come out and hear the music, and we want to keep challenging ourselves.” The trio has performed at many lauded festivals and venues across the globe and embarked on collaborations with world music duo DVA, Expressions Dance Company and selected Australian string quartets. They have released five albums as Misinterprotato and two internationally with British record company, Naim Label, as Trichotomy. In 2011, their album, The Gentle War, was nominated for the Bell Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year. Sean has also written new music for contemporary chamber ensemble Topology and works with the international trio, Vehere, featuring Norwegian vocalist Kari Bleivik and Belgian clarinetist Joachim Badenhorst. In 2006, Sean arranged and co-wrote compositions on the album Nightlight with Queensland Conservatorium classmate Megan Washington, who has since risen to pop stardom. Their album won the Bell Award for Jazz Vocal Album of the Year and in 2009 topped the Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR)

independent charts and iTunes jazz charts. Sean is grateful to his parents for nurturing the musician within him. As a young boy he dreamed of following a career in science but piano was a constant distraction. “My parents made me have piano lessons, which was nice of them,” he explains with harmless mockery. “Even after my attempts to quit they said: ‘No, you have to do this. This is good for you.’” Sean graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium with a major in jazz piano in 2000. He experienced what he considers his greatest career achievement in 2007 when he won the Brisbane City Council’s Lord Mayor’s Young and Emerging Artists Fellowship and secured funding from the Ian Potter Cultural Trust. The funding enabled him to complete a Master of Arts in Jazz Performance with distinction at the Leeds College of Music in the UK. Sean still has many things he wants to achieve in his career, including growing Trichotomy’s presence internationally. He is on the right track with the band’s eighth album planned for release in early 2013 and an upcoming tour of Europe and the UK. His advice to young musicians is to plan and persist. “I think you’ve got to be super dedicated. Never give up. And you’ve got to be organised – you’ve got to plan. I also think you need to be you and just be original. Do what you do. We don’t want to hear a replication; we want to hear something fresh.”

DIRECTED BY WOODY ALLEN

Growing up in the French banlieues (also known as ‘the projects’), Omar Sy didn’t always share his parents’ belief that education was the key to a successful future. He dreamed of becoming an actor and missed his final high-school exam to audition for a radio show. Despite not getting the part, Omar’s audition paved the way for his show Omar et Fred, placing him on the radar of the writers of The Intouchables, who wrote the role of Senegalese with the comedy actor in mind. Omar’s history and utterly joyful smile made him a perfect fit for the role of hardened caretaker Senegalese, who is appointed to look after a rich aristocrat, Philippe. As Philippe and Senegalese become acquainted, the pair forms an unbreakable bond.

More commonly known for her role as April in the series Parks and Recreation, Aubrey Plaza is a young actress simultaneously straddling the realms of cinema and television. In chasing her dream of becoming an actress, Aubrey studied at Tisch School of the Arts in New York and worked as a page for NBC. Her film break came in the 2009 film Funny People, and her latest film appearance is in the affable comedy Safety Not Guaranteed. Aubrey plays a journalism intern, Darius, who is sent with a journalist and another intern to cover the curious story of a supermarket attendant looking for a time-travel companion. Darius joins the time traveller and together they share a journey grounded in the power of belief.

Born Allan Stewart Konigsberg, Woody Allen changed his name at the age of 15. A savvy lad, Woody was conscious of how his name may affect his image as a future film director. In his teens he started writing jokes for shows and entertainers before becoming a stand-up comedian. Through his witty one-liners and shrewd style, Woody went on to pioneer a distinct style of romantic comedy. Following on from Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris, Woody continues his love affair with Europe in To Rome with Love. Set in the Italian capital, the film is a series of vignettes that follow the adventures and romantic forays of locals and tourists. Woody wrote, directed and stars in the film alongside Alec Baldwin and Penélope Cruz.

THE BLACK KEYS

GET DOWN!

AT BRISBANE ENTERTAINMENT CENTRE

AT GOMA

Some of the most successful creative collaborations have grown from childhood friendships. Like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, The Black Keys is a musical partnership between lads who spent their youth happily jamming together. Following last year’s release of the band’s seventh studio album, El Camino, which featured hits including ‘Lonely Boy’ and ‘Gold on the Ceiling’, The Black Keys’ popularity in Australia has been fortified. See the bluesy rock duo perform when they come to Brisbane.

From the foxtrot to the samba, hip hop and ballet, the world of dancing is an eclectic sphere. The powerful art form holds a treasured place in every culture, evoking emotion, transfixing audiences and transcending barriers. In a celebration of dance as a form of self-expression, GOMA presents the Get Down! Dance on Film Since the 1970s retrospective. The selection of more than 40 films features classics including Saturday Night Fever and Dirty Dancing, where the characters use dance to fuel their dreams.

MUMFORD & SONS

BRENDAN MACLEAN

AT RIVERSTAGE

AT JUDITH WRIGHT CENTRE

While the members of Mumford & Sons may hail from the bustling borough of West London, many fans have long considered the band to be honorary Australians. The cheeky grins, heartfelt melodies and strumming banjo that made the folk group so popular will once again be gracing Australian stages following the release of the band’s second album, Babel. Visiting Brisbane for a performance at Riverstage, Mumford & Sons will be joined by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Willy Mason.

For some, a performance is more than simply jumping on stage with an instrument; it’s an opportunity to transport an audience to a faraway land. When on stage, Brendan Maclean embraces and throws himself into the theatricality of performance. Accompanied by a touch of piano bashing and ukulele plucking, Brendan’s performance at Judith Wright Centre will wander down a path of original pop singles, combined with unique interpretations of hits by Madonna and Kylie Minogue, for which he has become renowned.

›I became a performer because … I never really decided to be a performer, it just started happening. We were creating shows and needed performers, and we were the cheapest option to play the roles! Besides, it just seemed like the right thing to do. ›My creativity comes from … music, predominantly; I couldn’t survive without it. Music is a landscape that is so diverse, full of stories and emotion, light and shade, funny and serious – basically everything a theatre experience should be! ›I fuel my creativity by … well, it would be a lie to say I am not fuelled by coffee and red wine (it doesn’t need to be fancy, as long as it’s red). My creativity is also fuelled by the incessant need to ‘make’. We make theatre from the ground up – the music, the sets, the costumes – anything – we just can’t stop! ›I love my job because … it takes us around the world and gives us some great experiences – but most of all it’s a challenge. It is a great satisfaction to create a show out of thin air that gets an audience excited. ›Through my work, I would like to … create an experience for the audience that energises a room.

italian summer

FRAMURA, ITALY Signore Lucarelli closes his eyes as he moves his hands in time, directing a steady rhythm to the imaginary orchestra that sits before him. The first movement of Mozart’s ‘Clarinet Concerto’ thunders from inside the house, filling the evening air with a passionate crescendo. One by one, the stars are twinkling awake in the night sky above us, creating a vast celestial blanket that only ever reveals itself outside urban life.

Birds natter to each other as the evening breeze swishes idly through the trees of the dense woodland surrounding us. Seated beside Signore Lucarelli at the dinner table, I smile at the contented expression etched into his face. My friend, Allegra, grins at me across the table. “This all must seem so Italian to you,” she laughs, watching as her father conducts his phantom musicians. It does, but in the most whimsical way possible. The Lucarelli house is perched on the hillside just above the village of Framura, on the northwest coast of Italy. Surrounded by a lush garden of olive trees, hydrangea, rosemary bushes and a colourful melange of flowers, the peaceful abode – painted the salmon pink typical to the region of Liguria – is a picture of solitude, looking out onto a vast stretch of the Mediterranean. The moon is a perfectly formed crescent. “It’s included in the price of your stay,” Signore Lucarelli winks, referring to the marvel that lights up the sky. We are enjoying dinner outside, bathed in moonlight. On the table in front of us is a delectable spread of pasta with fresh pesto, baked tomatoes with rosemary (cooked with olive oil the Lucarellis made themselves from the olive trees surrounding us) and beautiful local cheeses, known as Caciotta, accompanied by a Sicilian white wine. Dessert is fresh peaches so juicy it’s almost impossible not to slurp. It’s easy to fall asleep later that night, sated by natural beauty and sumptuous yet simple cuisine. The next morning, as we wait on the

62 map magazine

T H E E AT I S S U E O C T O B E R 1 2

mm146-p62-63-TMAP.indd 62

platform at the tiny Framura train station, the heatwave that has blossomed over the past few days is in its element. It’s only 10:00 am and already Allegra and I are drenched in sweat, sighing with relief when the noisy but welcome breeze of a passing train provides momentary respite. When our train arrives, the air-conditioning appears to be on vacation with the rest of Italy, and we are left to swelter for the 10-minute journey to Monterosso al Mare, the first of the five villages that cascade down the hillside to compose Cinque Terre. We take refuge on the shaded terrace of one of Monterosso’s restaurants, refuelling with a coffee and a fresh slice of focaccia while planning our journey for the day. I lean back in my chair and take in the architecture of the petite village, its buildings drenched in dusky pastels that offset the aquamarine sea shimmering in the morning sun. From Monterosso, we board a small boat that will sail us past the next three villages to Cinque Terre’s other bookend, Riomaggiore. The landscape that eases past us as we glide through the Mediterranean defies logic, appearing to be precariously balanced upon hilltops and sheer cliffs. And yet, at the same time, it seems so harmonious, as if nature and architecture are incongruously one. Our plan is to walk back through the villages, exploring each endearing laneway and charming crevice before ending the day with a swim at the beach. All good intentions; but seeing that we have chosen the hottest day of the year to embark on this

journey, our priorities begin to waver. Our thoughts wander from the charms of Cinque Terre’s winsome architecture to the tantalising blue sea that laps at its feet. By the time we reach Vernazza, the final stop before returning to Monterosso, the only thing preventing us from bounding into the water is the lure of fresh gelato. We practically leap from the train when it pulls into Framura, skipping down the steps to the beach that lies alongside the station. It’s 7:00 pm and the sun still beams in the sky, quietly pleased with its effort for the day. When we plunge into the heavenly chill of the water, I half expect to see steam emanating from our parched skin. Floating languidly for the next hour, I make a mental note to one day to return to Cinque Terre when autumn breezes will be plenty. Weary yet content, we cram into the tiny bus that winds up the serpentine road of Framura, dropping locals off along the way. When it finally reaches the top of the hill, we are the sole sardines left in what was once a tin full to the brim. As the sun retires gracefully into the horizon – stopping only briefly to flood the sky with a spectrum of oranges and pinks – the bells of Framura’s sole church begin to ring, echoing ‘Ave Maria’ joyously across the landscape. They fall to silence just as we reach the Lucarelli’s gate, but as we navigate our way through the wild garden towards the house, the silence is broken. I smile as I see Signore Lucarelli raise his baton, as his imaginary orchestra once again comes to life.
