Endless Romantica

Field Theory

5–6 May
Sat 5.28pm – Sun 5.27pm
Brunswick Mechanics Institute


This is not a ticketed event

Exactly one year after it’s closure, Next Wave alumni Field Theory (Lara Thoms, Jackson Castiglione, Sarah Rodigari, Jason Maling, Martyn Coutts and Anna Schoo) presents Endless Romantica – an homage to the Brunswick institution, Cafe Romantica. This long running 24-hour Italian diner was a much loved place where hot topics were embraced across generations, over 5am espressos and bowls of home-style spaghetti.

Throughout this non-stop, 24-hour performance broadcast, audiences are invited to join a conversation reflecting on this history while looking to the future. Have a wine, make-out, taste Field Theory’s attempt at the famous ‘Romeo and Juliet’ pasta while speculating on gentrification, romance, late night culture and the future of a suburb in continuous change. Live on-site and online at fieldtheory.com.au
