Endless Romantica – The Eulogy Commemorating Brunswick

RIP Romantica

With the recent news that Cafe Romatica has shut it’s doors forever, Field Theory is working hard to deliver an responsive work considering gentrification, late -night culture and the suburb of Brunswick.  Details will be revealed soon.

Cafe Romantica was a cultural institution, filled with men playing dominos, 5am coffees, 3am home brews and where muslim women’s collectives and queer Italian groups meet on the same day. Run by a tight knit- family, Romantica has held Eurovision parties, record launches and wakes. On the last operating night of  Cafe Romantica, staff and punters danced on the tables till dawn. In a suburb ripe with gentrification, this new commemoration will pay tribute to romance, tortellini, high-rise apartments, crime and debaucherous late-night scenes.

Friday 4th May - Friday 4th May 2018
Details to come.
