How Pop-Up Magazine pivoted to (even more) experimental storytelling
"Locum chaz thanks candidates. Great to be here. So i guess it would be wise to start out with the beginning of Beginning of but the pandemic and twenty twenty and Pop up magazines pivot strategy I know at first you turn to video. Which wasn't typically something that pop up magazine did around its events You weren't recording them. You weren't sharing them in that medium but how was it you know. Moving to video and I guess you're for your first venture was shown on youtube. Live back in Does it like late summer. Yeah how how is that process. Well you're exactly right. It's sort of where we where we entered. Twenty twenty is a put together live magazine shows and toward them around the country and we would sell thousands of tickets and fill up a crowded opera house or lincoln center with fans and we would Perform a magazine live on stage writers and filmmakers illustrators and photographers radio people would narrate their stories live to an audience and we would accompany that with live music and with beautiful artwork and film and photography animation on a screen so all of that was shut down in. We finished our last national tour in february of two thousand twenty and The pandemic shutdown theaters in march. So we had been planning on going on tour with our spring show in may but we had to quickly change plans for that. And so we retooled the our spring show and built it instead as as a youtube premiere streaming show and It was sort of one example among many that that of things we did as an organization in twenty twenty in response to the pandemic. I mean at as you said at the opening remarks for a company that makes live events. The pandemic has been at a very direct a negative impact on our business the silver lining for us about twenty twenty in the pandemic is. It was an opportunity for us to be very experimental experiment with storytelling in different formats storytelling in different contacts. And most importantly a twenty twenty one year that kind of gave us permission to get closer to our audience in a variety of ways so I guess the new audience approach in opening up to the geography of of the internet. As you as you mentioned that would be the Video initiative that you that you took on Correct yes so. How did that Perform for you like how was being Youtube lives something that helped drive new audiences as mentioned here. I mean so. The the first the first video experiment we did was back in may and we elected to make it free to our fans through the generous support of google who sponsored the show and what it allowed us to do is to take what was take our spring tour. Our may tour where we were planning to sell tens of thousands of tickets and it allowed us instead to bring that show to millions of people and so we saw an expansion of the number of people we could touch from tens of thousands of people to millions of people and that was very exciting for us.

Lucia Lucas: Cracking Operas Trans Glass Ceiling
"Begin with. I want to go back to when you were first coming out. Was there any president or other openly trans opera singers that you could look at to see how being out might potentially affect your career. No actually this is sort of been a rule book that i've written myself over the last six years. Because there wasn't there was some professional singers who previously have careers. Who then transitioned so. There was a little bit of an idea what might happen with my voice which is not much and there was a little bit of an idea. About how the business might treat somebody. Who is trans like examples of it but nobody who was on the stage performing. It was just sort of a. How does this all work. So i had to decide how i was going to handle each individual thing and hopefully it was in a good way. Oh in so in essence to use your word. You're like writing the rule book for every transfer. Sinha fall you. I mean it's my real book for me. But i do hope that if i'm doing my best that at least administration in different opera houses can see that. It's possible that it's possible that this private thing this this very thing very specific to somebody can exist only in their personal life and it doesn't need to exist on stage. The opera doesn't need to be reworked. Nothing needs to happen. You can glue a beard on. And i'll go out there and i'll sang an it's fine and i don't care and i just want to keep doing my job you know if i'm missing. Baritone i just wanna go sing baritone really well and so now you have been. Al came out officially in two thousand fourteen. How welcoming have you found the opera world. Well the public in opera houses. They're typically a little bit more conservative than the people who are performing. But i will have to say that they're way more understanding and willing to at least inquire instead of shutting down somebody who is not someone who they're used to seeing on stage. We're seeing more and more start to break down. I think that that comes with so many tv studios. That are existing. Now there's more tv studios than have ever existed. You know we have. We have netflix amazon. We have who. We have apple with their own series. You don't have to make you know forty million or opening weekend. You're not playing to that many people in a theater. You can play to niche audiences like everybody doesn't have to like it and it setup that we ended and it's beautiful that way we can tell specialty stores to specialty people. You know one. Massive difference between hollywood and opera in correct me if i'm wrong but you have almost only played male roles and that is how your career is likely to continue. Is that right. Yes the majority of characters that i play in my mainstream main stage career are men specifically angry men between the age of thirty five and fifty. That's that's my talk. So the focus. What type of voice you have. And so because of the characteristics of your voice of the timbre and like the notes you are in that category almost only for opera. Yeah i mean unless a new composer wants to right something else which is actually the case with tobias picker. She's writing the danish girl for me. You know that's kinda something special and that's because the composer said hey. I would like to do this for you

I would like to begin. And by having you share with us a little bit about the war memorial and Performing Arts Center. I think for most San Francisco people. They walked by it there a McAllister and Venice across from City Hall and they're like, oh it's a month old building. So it would be great if you could get a share or Memorial and how the memorial and Performing Arts Center work with Arts and Cultural organizations to say, we're just go. Oh absolutely. Thanks for having us on George excited to be here today. The San Francisco war memorial and Performing Arts Center is in the heart of San Francisco, right across Van Ness Avenue San from San Francisco City Hall. We have a number of performer venues here including Davies Symphony Hall the War Memorial Opera House and then inside the Veterans building. We have the Herbst theater. There was a center for Opera which hosts both the Toby Atrium theater and the Brian Crain station studio. And we also have a really fabulous event space called The Green Room all in all we can host over 7,000 patrons any given evening and pre covid-19 do that with juice. The ballet performing alongside the symphony San Francisco performances being in Herbst theater all that could happen in one night. So we're both a home for culture and art in San Francisco as well as a huge economic driver for the region. We've been here since nineteen thirty-two. Our resident company is the San Francisco Ballet the San Francisco Opera the San Francisco Symphony and then San Francisco performances, of course is off the primary users of the Herbst theater, and we've had a long partnership with them as well. So I think that we're one of the cornerstones of cultural activity in San Francisco and really proud to be a department of the city county of San Francisco and then fun fact a historical the charger for the was actually signed their trips theater. That's correct. All of the plenary sessions took place in the Opera House. The UN Charter was signed off stage of what was then the veterans Auditorium, which is now known as the Herbst theater and the Japanese peace Accord was also negotiated in the opera house. So we're really big site for history. A lot of folks don't understand wage. Why UN Plaza is called UN Plaza, but it's called UN Plaza because indeed the charter was signed here and for a brief period they actually almost put the headquarters of the United Nations here in San Francisco before they decided to place them in New York. Yeah, we host a lot of history here and still continue to provide a meeting space to Veterans groups and a number of other non-profits working on behalf of veterans causes here in San Francisco. So

Checking on Friends in New York and Italy
"Let's start today's travel through exterior with a call to our friend, Fred Plotkin in New, York City his work on Italian. Cuisine and opera earned him special honor from the Italian government a few years ago. But like the rest of us, he's staying home and Haton Intel. The risk of infection improves. Giorno Fred. Great to be with you wherever you are, Rick. You Fred first of all you call yourself a pleasure activist, I love that term, and it sort of reminding me of your passion for Opera Your Passion for Italy your passion for cooking, and all the lecturing and writing and work you do. Turn people under those joys of life. How was your life like right now in new? York City I'm in the thick of it. In terms of what the epicenter has been in New York. And my philosophy became at the very beginning better six feet apart than six feet under so I've been very very responsible as I encourage everyone to be if people can get to the plays in world, wars and pandemics, the vast. We need to learn from what people did. Or didn't do and that's sustenance to me to study the past at times like this. Because otherwise we feel abandoned. The past there to teach us, and so I've been reading I've been studying I've used the opportunity to begin to work on a book. I've been wanting to write for years, but haven't had the time. Time is a gift. We need to use it very very well, and I tried to. And I've been reminding myself and my friends that rather than spinner wheels and try to do something. We can't do during this period. Find a way to make it a constructive time and a blessing when you think about your passions opera for instance to me I am so saddened by the notion that one of the most dangerous things. This time is being acquire because the worst way to. To spread this virus is by singing with Gusto, making a joyous sound that depresses me frankly that choirs could be deadly now I have to see them in these checkerboards zoom world singing solo right now and you know I have many opera singer friends who are very dear friends of mine, and I feel for them terribly some of the managing and they sing, and they practice, and they steady new music, but others feel that without the sound of applause in the presence of colleagues. It's not their work and my feeling is always been that when we go into a feeder or church where people are seeing where. Action happens and air shared. Is that sharing of the air the electronic current that happens between humans? That's a huge part of. Our experience at alive theater as a communal setting and something that virtual technology just cannot replicate I never. An opera on the radio or on video and operates a report from an Opera House. But I'm not saying. These things are bad and right now I, certainly enjoying audio operas well but communal gathering. Is something fundamental. You talked about the sharing of air I never thought about that, but I've been thinking about it without knowing it. It's the sort of a communion of course when pastors are struggling with. How can we be together at church if you can't have the sharing of the peace or communion or fellowship or singing? There's no sharing of air and when you go to a pub, you want to share that air when you go to a theater when I give a lecture I want the house packed. It's the sharing of the air, and that's going to be an adjustment for us, and we can hope and pray it will come back, but in the interim we can be singing solo and doing it in a community kind of way. I. Suppose think of the word inspiration. That's where that comes from. It's about breathing together. We do breathe together. I I WANNA make a point to that New York City during the complete lockdown. was incredibly quiet and I heard birds and all kinds of things. I did normally here and frankly the air was much. Cleaner city has slowly begun to try to read self up again. The air is kidding dirtier. This is the place you're activists in me that I'm very sensitive to these things. And although I would not wish on anyone what we've been through nonetheless. I wish we could learn that. There are ways to keep the air cleaner

The Gendered Brain - Gina Rippon and myth shattering neuroscience
"It's Natasha Mitchell here. With science friction with a question. Are you a two headed guerrilla? Now I ask this question. Because in eighteen seventy nine the founder of social psychology so an important guy right. The scientists gust of Lebron right these influential words in the most intelligent rices. There are a large number of women whose brains are closer in size to those of guerrillas them to the most developed mile. Brian's this inferiority is so obvious that no one can contest it for a moment. Only degree is worth discussion. Without a doubt there exists sump distinguish women very superior to the average man but they are as exceptional as the birth of any monstrosity as for example of a guerrilla with two heads. Consequently we may neglect them entirely. Well that was iding seventy nine but so it is today. Also it seems because cognitive neuroscientist Professor Jane Rippin from Aston University in Birmingham digs into the history of scientists efforts to pin sex differences on the brain in her light is book the Gender Brine the New Science that shatters the myth of the Female Brian. And just before Australia. Waiting to lockdown and boards closed. She join me on stage at the Sydney Opera House for this is all about women festival. Thank you very much everybody. My Life's work has really been looking at what makes brains different any brains different and in fact book started much more about the exploration of how brains to be different because I am an autism researcher. And there's a great thing in the autism community that if you've met one person with autism you've met one person with autism so we really thought we need to understand the variability. Everybody's brain is is different from everybody else's brain and in fact. I WANT TO CALL THE BOOK. Fifty shades of gray matter but publishers thought perhaps air. I needed to kind of tone down the brains of areas I was looking at a bit more Gravitas so the book is called the gendered brain. And it's really about how brains get to be different particularly with respect to whether they're male brains or they're female brains and actually it turns out once I got into the research and really investigating this given. Everybody knows that men's brains different from women's brains and that's why men behave different. Trim women and men are from Mars women from Venus? All of those wonderful sort of tropes that we've all come across so I went back and I had a look at the research. I thought let's really get into where these differences are can get a handle on how brains and different and I saw thinking I think time looking in the wrong place because I really can't find that much evidence and so eventually when I really gone through the research up brains and behavior. I came to the apparently startling conclusion that the differences between the sexes. A much smaller than we ever thought even with respect to brains so the question. Have you got a male brain or have you female brain? My answer was actually. I think a we're looking in the wrong place and be with probably asking the wrong question so I would say actually having come to that conclusion and our will warn you this in case you feel the need to leave. It wasn't universally accepted. I came across this really profound belief that we really have to acknowledge that scientists like me just you know get a life get out into the real world. You really don't know what's going on there. He comes conclusions like that and the kind of discussions. I was getting from the press when I was saying enthusiastically explaining the similarity between brains for example the Telegraph Telegraph in the UK. Quieter conservative newspaper. When Christina? Doni said this theory smacks of feminism with an equality fetish so. I love the idea that if you're interested equality some kind of perverse practice say this is the kind of response. I got to mind futuristic. My finding but this is my favorite full of carp which. I'm assuming this mistake anyway. So if anybody feels the need. This is dangerous information. They're about to hear time to go. But let's just move on this. Of course it is a very old question. Are Male brains different from female brains? But we need to remember that. This didn't used to be a question more than one hundred years ago when this research started when I started to realize that brains were in some some way the source of all the kind of human behavior we were interested in and even human places in society you found that the researchers at the time who strangely enough for male a distinctive view about what they were looking at they looked at the society. They looked to the status quo and they said women have an inferior place in society which they were actually right because they didn't have access to educational financial independence or political of power. So they said what we is. Brain. Scientists need to explain is the fact that women's brains are inferior so this was actually the beginning of what I call the hunt. The Difference Crusade where scientists were saying men's brains different women's brains. Let's why another coach from the two headed gorilla man. Lebron women represent the most inferior forms of human evolution and are closer to children and savages than to an adult civilized man. So if you kind of harbor ideas. This was allies objective scientific campaign to measure differences between two different groups of people lead to bear in mind. Some thoughts bit later on the idea. This complementarity trump being a bit rude saying that women are inferior. What we should say is that they have these wonderful skills. Which will of course complement those of men who are going to be ruling the world so we must start with the realization. That's as much as women want to be good scientists or engineers. They want first and foremost to be womanly companions of men and to be good

There are a memorial stones to victims of the Holocaust who had deported from particular houses. And if you have a friend or relative was deported from that house you can donate some money to this foundation and they will put stumbling stone into the pavement Princeton pavement. Like you need to trip on this to never forget the horrible thing that happened right there when you think about Germany. A lot of our fixated on World War Two in the whole fastest thing but of course there's many layers of the city that was the leading city of of the PRUSSIAN empire and so on Fabio. And when you think about memorials of the horns period and Prussia what is there in Germany to look at our Berlin. I think the most visible that everybody know will know. Is The victory column. That's in the center of the main park often. The victory column was built as a symbol of victory over the French. This is where history and Berlin connect. It was originally standing on the spot where it is today. The Nazis moved at there to make it stand in a more triumphant spot in the very center of the city. It was originally built near the rice stuck building and was not looking quite some one mental there today. Six major streets of lead straight towards the listen to that part of a big access isn't it? I mean Hoeger. The whole city is built on this axis which lined by memorials. The East and west access really is this fascinating thing. You look up. And you see Golden Angel Hair and you think. Wow that's wonderful. Then you close in you. See while this is all candidates made cannons French cannons French cannons. Like as a AS A TO Z. Boy To as spoils of war multiple. Yeah so it is weird thing. If you you would think that's nice to call between can look at it that it has a little jab at the French. It's a big Jab at Big Jab at the French or the Germans the French and of course I in the next century. We've got the whole Hitler situation and a lot of memorials relating to the nightmare of Berlin being the capital of Nazism. What are some of the memorials that you'll see when you go to Berlin that way what I found very haunting as the memorial to the burning of the books right near onto the Lyndon right near the State Opera House? And it's basically a memorial that you wouldn't really see because it's underground and you would just maybe pastas Query Newton. We have no idea what it is but quite often you see consumerist groups looking at nothing really and then you look there and it basically is a hole in the ground. It's a glass plate in the ground and he looked down and there is an empty library like five by five five meters containing empty shelves for twenty thousand books. Symbolizing was happening in the tenth of May Nineteen thirty three. When the Nazis took all the books and literature that they hated that it didn't understand they didn't like and were putting them in a big pile and burning him openly for people to see and that's now empty. Shelves are very haunting memorial to that.
Ballerina: Fashion's Modern Muse, an interview with Patricia Mears
"On your new exhibition. It is truly magical. It's supremely beautiful. Have to say and I learned a ton from its accompanying catalogue which is called Ballerina. Fashions Modern Muse for any of our listeners. Who WanNa pop on over to Amazon and pick up a copy so for any of our listeners. Who like me may not be ballet aficionados? I'm hoping I we can do a little bit of Bali history just a little bit. When do I see the emergence of ballet? And what distinguished? It from other types of dance which preceded it bally's quite an old art form the genesis of what you see today. The basic steps in the positions were already in place as early as the sixteen sixties. The first formal school was started in sixteen sixty one under the auspices of Louis. The fourteenth who himself was a very accomplished valeted Ella. It was clearly an aristocratic endeavor. And you see that carried over today. This would erect posture. This sort of very formal movement of the body so in some ways it is part of that French also regime aspect and we still see it today but ballet's also a very athletic endeavor so it's marrying these two extremes if you will sort of restraint kind of technical Bravura and again. That's why I think they call ballet dancers artists athletes. Yeah because they merged the two and then fast forward. The ballet went from being aristocratic very classical in its themes and male dominated to about the eighteen. Twenty eighteen thirties when women take over ballet's international. It's much more standardized and very importantly the romantic style. The sort of supernatural narrative takes over and it seems that women artists were better suited to express this new ballet form. What can you tell us about the life of a professional ballerina in the early years of the art forum in the Nineteenth Century? What was her place in society very different from today. The Ballerina really sat at the bottom of the socio economic scale. If you will. There were a few exceptions in. Even though there was a flourishing in the eighteen thirties and forties where there were certainly respectable stars By and large these women were very marginalized. They were paid very little and as a result they were often exploited. Many of them had to turn to prostitution To survive and we see these beautiful pictures by got today showing what seems like an idealized environment but in fact often in the back. You'll see men lurking. They were known as the abomination repower men of the Jockey Club and they regularly exploited these young women so many of them had very sad stories even though they were quite accomplished artists and speaking of data. I think there's even a little back story to his very famous sculpture of the fourteen year. Old Dancer Right. That's right that famous. Bronze sculpture is of a young girl She was part of a family where I think her sister was. Also a dancer but sadly she was likely a victim of the circumstances at the time where she hardly made any money to survive. Many of the dancers were hungry. They were physically exerting themselves and this young lady did fall into prostitution as well and probably died a very sad life so yeah it's horrible to think of and so different from the way we view dancers today right and it really is a fact that the majority of ballerinas then and now will never make it to star status. That's right or or you know prima which was a term. That's kind of more favorite in the past right. Today's top dancers are really generally called principal dancers. If I'm correct right why this shift and terminology from Ballerina to Principal Dancer. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that ballet culture came up in Great Britain and especially the United States and we view ourselves as a bit more democratic so the idea of the Ballerina which was a term given to very very few female dancers. You really had to be at the apex at one point in the late nineteenth century in Russia and said there were only six ballerinas in all of Russia was extraordinary So you can see how limited the term was bandied about then but today we view of the hierarchy of the principal soloist in the quarter ballet member but I think it erases the difference between male versus female and one that really I think asserts a sense of achieving it not so much through social connections or through whims but really through technical as well as artistic merit so. This is one of the reasons we see that change in France. They still use the word. A twelve or star to designate the very top rank. Oh Nice Yeah. I'd like to turn our attention to one of the all time greats who we were just talking about Before we started recording Marie Tahiliani And she really rose to international claim in the early nineteenth century. I'm hoping you could tell us a little bit about her. And also her innovations which helped to shape the future trajectory of ballet as an art form. That's right I think Marie Tagliani was important to very significant ways. One was the art form itself. He was not considered a beautiful woman and had certain physical flaws. Someone told me that. She was slightly hunchback and her father who was a brilliant choreographer was able to create dance. Movements that did not distract from that in fact Really enhanced her physical illness She was very hard working and she was a pioneer of the idea of going up on point sort of Now we think of it is absolutely essential in classical ballet for a female dancer but it was very rare when she started and I think the other thing that she did was to raise the respectability of the Ballerina. She was very careful in the way she cost him herself. She was discreet. Show is where pearls she had. A Floral Diadem And the other thing is that she acted very lady like off stage and she made sure her physical depictions whether in costume more in high fashion. We're always done in a very respectable way so she was able to do something. Many other ballerinas could not do which was Garner female audience. Even the young Princess Victoria was a huge fan of hers and so if members of the royal family could embrace. It was considered acceptable. So she was a breakaway star but unusual in that way and and correct me. If I'm wrong queen perhaps named one of her horses Tahiliani. He did tell Yoni was one of her race horses and also there was a stagecoach that ran between cities that was called the Tagliani fabrics after her famous role muscle feed many different types. Candies were named after her and the Russians were especially enamored. There were some bellum who made a soup out of her shoes needed hotel. Yoni mania swept through Europe and the eighteen thirties forties talk about being a mythic. Yes exactly Speaking of iconic elements of ballet. I would be very very surprised if there's a single one of our listeners out there who is not familiar with the garment which is of course. Queen essentially synonymous with ballet and I am of course talking about the two one thing that I was taken a bit backed by. When I was reading the exhibition catalogue was the somewhat body origins of this term. So how did this term to come about an aunt at its most basic? What is a two two while the two two is just the Ballerina skirt? It's costume and when it was invented in the eighteen thirties It was a word that came from. Rather if you will of course background it's a slang or play on the word. Kuku which itself is slang for the petite call. Which is your behind. Basically ballet audiences were different in the way they were positioned back in those days. The people who were members of the aristocracy or had money were always in what they called the box seats or the rings that were on the upper tiers of the Opera House and it was down in the orchestra seats where the more working class people sat and they could sometimes get a glimpse of the Valarie Yes that they were diaphanous garments and so sometimes depending on how she twirled or whatnot it you could get a look up them and they were also bit dangerous they were often starched ahead sizing in them which made them flammable and with the open gas lights. Some of the Ballerina skirts caught on fire and sadly a number of stars did die that

Yuval Sharon's Not-So-'Sweet Land'
"Sharon is used to getting some pretty baffled looks when he tries to explain the work of his opera company which is called the industry. Sharon's hopscotch for example took place inside cars driving around L. A. In invisible cities people listen to his opera on headphones as they move through. La's Union station. Sharon's latest piece is called sweet land. It's a collaborative air opera about colonialism. And displacement is set in the La State historic park which is just north of downtown in sweetland opera is used to challenge and dismantle some myths about America's origins. Here's Yuval Sharon. I have been speaking a lot recently about opera. This country being a remaining colonialist art form because so much of opera that we see in this country is the German French Italian repertoire in those languages telling those stories and here we are in America Retelling the stories over and over again and it seems like especially in our times now when there is so much to talk about and there is such a need for artists to be speaking about the kind of things that that we've taken on with this project and so much more. It seems strange to go into the privileged sphere of an Opera House and hear a story about nineteenth century. Italy There's something about that that feels so escapist And feels like it's a. It's trying to pretend like the situation out on the street in our daily lives. is not as dire as it really is So I think that that was for me. A real push to try and create a piece like like sweet land and one of the most important aspects of it was creating the conditions for collaboration To really flow something that would be not another iteration of a kind of hierarchical leadership But the idea that a more horizontal consensus based process would be something that I could offer a kind of antidote to some of the problems that we're talking about before we talk about the story and the music I wanna ask you about the venue it said in the La State historic park and this was native land. It was home to the San Gabriel Band of mission Indians then. It was the site of the Southern Pacific Transportation Companies River Station where migrants from around the world would disembark trains Ryan and now it said against the skyline of downtown Los Angeles next to a metro track next to the one ten freeway. There's like a little wine store across the street. It's got so much history. Why was it a good place for you to set the story to me when we were conceiving of this project we were thinking about the right site for where this this piece should take place and of course we started thinking about things like warehouses or alternative spaces but but you know still interior spaces and I was hearing from my collaborators over and over again how much The relationship to land with such a crucial aspect of what they wanted to explore with this piece and when it comes to that relationship with land it seemed to me that one of the one of the one of the places that that really hold so much of. La's cultural history and meaning. Is that sliver of land? That is now the state historic park. you mentioned it's a couple of its iterations but it had so many others for a long time. It was considered a Brownfield as if Meaning that they didn't think that anything could grow on it anymore because of how terribly it was maintained during industrialization during the railroad era So so thinking that. And it wasn't until Lauren. Bon came up with not a cornfield project. This really bold experiment in kind of replanting The land showing it's continuous fertility Before that people sort of abandoned it and thinking that that was the most important tongue village that it was the site of this crucial Spanish settlement that it was this a flood plain all of those things for a while were buried under layers of industrialization and thanks to Lauren and th thanks now to the park. It has It has this new life to it but those layers Still struggle to come out those voices that are still part of the archaeology that layering effect. That's in the land Still has a lot of voices that have been suppressed and a big part of what the opera was about was not to pinpoint any one particular language or one particular story to lift up but instead to think about and to invite the audience to contemplate Those stories that are in the land that were

I think the first time Chucho sultana who is a huge tation Sisley two star Michelin huge character on the island and his well respected for his take on classic traditional cecillia food and bring it to the modern lates. He is he's opening a restaurant in the Ritz Carlton in central Vienna and not far from the State Opera house, and you'll be cooking Sicilian food in an ancient way. What does that mean in practice? What kind of dishes do expect from him? Well, he's quite famous for cooking on plates that were found years old and he really respects the ancient way of cooking Sicilian that means old pastiches from his. Going back to African roots where silly has its influence on food and also from the Spanish, an Italian. So you'll be seeing dishes are really old and antique like the pastor conlow Saturday, which is the seafood pasta and baked swordfish, which is a real traditional traditional dish and spaghetti with the golden sort of Bataga. We're talking about a two Michelin star chef over here, and I find it interesting that out of all the possible places in the world, he decided to open this restaurant in Vienna. Why do you think that is going back to the ancient roots? He wants to bring the old well to the new world, and he sees Vienna as a new station for food which is quite interesting for the city. Let's continue with your second news story for today's about according ary events that has just ended in Italy. So chef Francesca say, who's who you might know from from the London from the London crowd. He started a festival two years ago, no west celebrating no ways. And it was inspired by Massimo matures movement with the food for soul. It's called no waste. Very simple. Yeah, he's he's gonna original name ideas better. It's not that exciting Rene, but it's it was a very good event because he managed to get a lot of his friends over Alfred Persad the chef in London, Pierre coffin, three star and commission will get about an event that run for three days. I'm wondering, what is the discussion like in London? For example, here in London, there is a massive discussion about eliminating food waste and making the whole industry more more sustainable is is the same discussion taking place in Italy. For example, there's an understanding that that there's a lot of talk and not enough action. So the in Italy, we trying to give some of these events and just say, has done a very good job because he's looking at Pierre coffin was cooking with the potato peels and making a potato gratin again, dish, we all know and showing people that you'd have to further peels away. You can't. You do something with it in Italy, the compensation is we won't see more action. We don't hear all this stability and what you're doing. We wanna know we wanna. It actually working. Exactly. So during the course of three evenings during this no waste festival, there was a lot of music. There was a little of tweet food. There was some show cooking as well. Give us anything else about, like what kind of tips were maybe shared there and what kind of dishes were to. So to which extent you can eliminate food waste and cooking. If Alfred pursued was was very good. He at us leftover food at the moment. You can't you reheat some of, you know, you can. He all the all the left of appeals and the leftover waste. That's not been sort of finished on a play, and you can create these wonderful sort of budgies and of Indian influence food. He pulled over to Italy, and as it was very popular amongst the collaboration, crowd who love their spicy food is showing away of mixing, mixing different fusion foods from different countries Comanche be a really good, no waste idea..
