The New

or We Will Have No Part in the Past

one-night-only multi-sensory futurism

The bus pulls up at the convention centre. No-one’s there to meet you. Nothing is as it was.

We know who you are. We know where you’re going. Now, what do you want?

The teams from MK-Alpha, WeNeverSleep, folk rockers Burnt Letters, and Lûmé’s kitchen creatives take you forward in a one-off, multi-sensory dining event. Sound, light, taste, smell, and your own desires shape this event – including the perfumed, take anti-memory book, full of recipes, poetry, and photography.

SHAUN QUADE | Lûmé Head Chef

Unrestricted by the rules of formality, Shaun Quade has never been tethered to tradition. “I can’t really fit my style as a chef into a region, or a discipline or a cuisine…it’s more a constant, restless evolution. Once I create something, I always feel the need to create something better.”

Starting out young, Shaun formed his skills in the kitchens of acclaimed Australian restaurants such as Quay, Biota and Royal Mail, where he earned a reputation as a pastry wizard. As he refined his craft over the following years, Shaun’s involvement in the creative process has gained widespread recognition within the hospitality industry and led to the opening of his first restaurant, South Melbourne’s Lûmé, at the age of 32.

Known for his interdisciplinary and open-minded approach to modern cooking, Shaun is not just fascinated by what’s presented on the plate. He’s inspired by the process it took to get there, and how that translates into providing a multidisciplinary, sensory experience for Lûmé’s diners.
