Plaj: New Nordic Makes Itself at Home in California

Reindeer isn't on the menu at Pläj, San Francisco's new Scandinavian restaurant. Neither are lutefisk, puffin, or many other delicacies that make Nordic food seem so much more foreign than its Southern European counterparts. Instead, Stockholm-born chef and owner Roberth…

Yes, They Can

The cheekily named Can Film Festival won’t feature red carpets with petulant celebrities tumbling through press-baiting antics, but it will showcase the sequel to a seminal new-school graffiti movie. Jon Reiss’ Bomb It 2 began life as a web series…

The Copenhagen Stomp

Next to their Swedish counterparts, Danish bands have been underrepresented in the recent outpouring of Scandinavian music into the world at large. But then Efterklang got signed by 4AD late last year, so there may be hope yet. Named for…

Artist Mads Lynnerup's new routine

Artists who gleefully skewer our expectations are not always the most beloved of figures, but every once in a while, one arrives on the scene with an irresistible swagger. Mads Lynnerup qualifies as one of those welcome tricksters. The 32-year-old…

Noises Off

Recent fans of Copenhagen who missed Michael Frayn's 20-year-old London hit Noises Off may not recognize their man. Copenhagen is a sober historical play about quantum physicists during World War II, trying to develop (or thwart) the atom bomb. Noises…

Dominant-Looking Males

Besides physics, the branch of science most attractive to writers is biology, especially where it deals with inheritance and sex. Brighde Mullins' new play accordingly stirs a little neo-Darwinism into the story of a teenage castaway. Tara Scanlon, "who is…
