Tailored Events Catering, CarriageWorks, Eveleigh

Tailored Events Catering, Carriageworks, Eveleigh
Friday 11 January, 2008
Tonight we saw an amazing performance at the CarriageWorks in Eveleigh. I didn't even know the CarriageWorks existed until tonight and I was even more surprised at how fabulous this venue is - why aren't there more performances there? The enormous space, exposed railway posts and fixtures, huge bar and purpose built catering stall manned by Tailored Events Catering were just perfect. According to the CarriageWorks website,
Developed by the NSW State Government through Arts NSW, the Eveleigh Rail Yards at Wilson Street has been transformed into a bold new centre committed to the nurturing, development and presentation of contemporary arts. CarriageWorks offers an exciting addition to the cultural life of Sydney and its artists, providing an environment which pulses with a unique spirit of creativity and innovation. This is a new home for physical theatre, spoken word, music, dance, visual and hybrid arts.
The Sydney Festival is now in full swing and there are some great offerings over the month. Black Watch is currently being performed at the CarriageWorks by the National Theatre of Scotland. As the press blurb states,
Black Watch took the 2006 Edinburgh Festival by storm, playing to sold out crowds and garnering unanimous critical acclaim. Now, the most talked about production on the international theatre circuit arrives in Sydney for its Australian premiere.
Based on recent interviews with former soldiers who served in Iraq, this taut and uncompromising piece of theatre tells the story of Scotland's legendary 300 year-old Black Watch Regiment, whose disbandment was announced in 2004 just before its 800-man battalion replaced some 4,000 U.S. Marines in one of the bloodiest areas of Iraq.
Magnified by recent events, Black Watch reveals the harsh reality of the "war on terror" and what it means to make the journey home again. John Tiffany's production makes powerful and inventive use of movement, music and song to create a visceral, complex and urgent work. The production is widely regarded as a landmark in Scottish theatre and was invited to open the new session of the Scottish Parliament.
We arrived an hour before the performance to eat. The Tailored Events Catering stall looked promising and offered two main dishes:
- Nasi goreng
- Chicken & basil stir fry
I ordered one and my dinner buddy ordered the other. We paid and were handed a table number. Finding a table was easy and there are plenty of share tables, high tables and lounges to choose from. Each table was pre-stocked with dishes of chilli flakes, soy sauce and hot chilli sauce - just what I needed!
It didn't take long for our meals to be cooked to order and they arrived piping hot. The fun part is adding all the condiments to taste and then the first mouthful.....delicious. I was very impressed with the chicken & basil stir fry - it was flavoursome, contained plenty of chicken and fresh veggies. The bowls were a decent size and all for the bargain basement price of $11.

The CarriageWorks is an exciting venue and Black Watch was outstanding.
