Favelous presents: Plesiran Tempo Doeloe

Dinner and a performance

25 jun 2013

In Plesiran Tempo Doeloe, Nathalie Smoor and Nina Boas explored their relation to their fathers' Dutch East Indies roots. Plesiran Tempo Doeloe means playing with the past, and is a remarkable Indonesian tradition of re-staging events from the colonial past. Favelous chefs Andrea Sossi and Robert Bochove prepared an Indonesian meal. Dinner was at 19:30 and the performance started at 21:00.

Favelous was the Freezing Favela's pop-up canteen, runned by Andrea Sossi and Robert Bochove. They served honest, seasonal, affordable food and hosted workshops.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you could make tosti's from scratch, bricks from old newspapers, furniture from cardboard, and prepare food with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
