An Endurance Broadcast, Performance and artist -run restaurant. RIP Romantica
One year to the date of it’s closure, Field Theory present a homage to a recently closed late-night cultural institution that was the long-running 24- hour Italian diner Cafe Romantica. In this unique place a melting pot of hot topics were embraced across generations over a 5am espressos, 2am pool and homestyle bowls of spaghetti. Throughout the 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 cooking Café Romantica’s famous ‘Romeo and Juliet’ pasta while speculating on gentrification, romance, late night culture and the future of a suburb in continuous change.
