What sets Eclectica apart from the many minimalist contemporary galleries in Cape Town is the combination of art and carefully selected furniture. Raw leather matches the deep, rich browns in Matthew Hindley’s Forrest series of paintings, while a brightly coloured couch parallels the quirky styles of Marna Hattingh and Norman O’Flynn. All the furniture complements the art, highlighting the underlying tones of the paintings or key aspects of the works.

Review: Darling Brew Tasteroom & Brewery

Review: Darling Brew Tasteroom & Brewery

The tasting consisted of ten (ten!) beers, so we were glad we’d booked accommodation. The beers range from the Sungazer (a light one, at 2.6% alcohol) through wit (wheat) beers, lagers and ales to the Black Mist black ale. There’s something for everybody’s beer palate here.
Lunch came in the form of a cheese and meat platter to which other platters should look up in awe. Generous servings of fresh bread, cold meat, biltong, cheeses and preserves provided more than enough for two people. Everything on the platter is locally sourced and delicious. The caramelised onion marmalade is the stuff of culinary dreams.

The story plays out over a series of brief meetings between Emma (Emily Child) and her unnamed manager (Janna Ramos-Violante). Their company contract states that any relationship between employees that could be “characterised as romantic or sexual” must be reported, so the manager persistently asks if Emma has anything to reveal. She insists that she has nothing to declare, until the manager informs her that a co-worker, Darren, has given the details of a date he had with Emma.

Caught out, Emma tries to avoid trouble by picking apart the company’s definitions of ‘romantic’ and ‘sexual’, but these concepts are so nebulous and subjective that she can’t escape. Instead, she ends up having to define her personal relationship for a soulless bureaucrat while being ordered not to talk about the meetings with Darren. Their private relationship is thus turned into a professional matter and wrested from their control.
