La Boite and Wrightson Stewart

We are excited to announce our partnership with La Boite on the return to Brisbane of Holding The Man (16 Feb - 9 March 2013).

Timothy Conigrave’s memoir is one of Australia’s great love stories, and Tommy Murphy’s stage version captures all its special magic. David Berthold’s definitive original production, last seen in London’s West End, returns to Brisbane this February with an all new cast. VIP pre-sale tickets are now available ahead of the official 2013 season launch on 30 November. This ultimate theatre experience includes entry into the private VIP lounge, designed by Wrightson Stewart, reserved VIP seating, two complimentary drinks per person, and a free program. Only 80 VIP tickets are available for each performance (excluding preview performances)  and will not be available for purchase after 30 November.  
Breathtakingly honest and achingly funny, Holding the Man is a heart-wrenching account of a 15-year relationship that weathered disapproval, separation, temptation and ultimately, death. It's a story and a celebration that speaks across generations, sexual preferences and cultures. 

Tim Conigrave and John Caleo met in high school in the mid-1970s. Tim was in the school production of Romeo & Juliet and had a crush on John. John was the captain of the football team and wanted to play for Essendon. By the end of high school even their school yearbook acknowledged them as the year's cutest couple.

Holding the Man set box office records for Griffin Theatre Company in 2006. It enjoyed four sell-out seasons in Sydney, including transfers to the Sydney Opera House and Belvoir, before moving to the Brisbane Powerhouse, Melbourne Theatre Company and into London's West End.

Now, due to persistent and overwhelming demand, La Boite brings the original production back to the Brisbane stage with a fresh new cast.

Director David Berthold
Designer Brian Thomson
Costumes and puppets Micka Agosta

Curved banquette seating creates a strong architectural statement, grounding the cafe within the spce.

Isle of Capri kitchen, as featured in the article 'The new classic' in the latest issue of Monument Magazine.

our latest project...kisoji...

Kisoji is a modern sushi restaurant, offering both the traditional style sushi conveyor and a full Japanese menu, alongside a purpose designed take-away shop front. Its' inspiration comes from classically styled Japanese finishes and detailing, featuring a solid timber bulkhead, Japanese screening and a rustic brick work feature wall.

Set on a timber ash floor, the sushi conveyor is fixed at dining table height and surrounded by 'Elan' stools by Basile & Evans.
Banquette seating is also incorporated into the design, allowing for a more private dining experience.
The design also features vintage Japanese chests detailed within the joinery and patterned Noren-style curtains.

An outdoor dining area offers a more relaxed style of dining and includes the addition of 'Portable' table lamps by Bloom.

The overall design blends the warmth of timber and rustic finishes with an interesting lighting concept to create a subtle interior that allows the food to be the hero of the design.
