This fall, we give the stage to artists who think about (their) family ties, we are curious about the usual generation gaps, invite artistic families and search for the things that one generation leaves behind for the generation that follows.

What happens when multiple generations come together in one place, live together in one city, survive in the same world? What’s it like to age in Brussels, a city that keeps on getting younger? Or what’s it like to watch your children grow up in a country with a different culture than the one you grew up in? And how do young people react to our city?

We sincerely hope to welcome you at Beursscohouwburg during the course of the next two months!

2.10 & 3.10, 20:30 - Premiere
Fathers and Sons - Davis Freeman

Imagine having one moment where you could say anything you want to your parents. To truly say what you think of them. The good the bad even the ugly, and they could also say anything they want about you with no repercussions. This is Fathers & Sons. A moment where two families lay all their cards on the tables and you are the witnesses.

Blind Cinema - Britt Hatzius

In Blind Cinema, a grownup audience sits blindfolded in the darkness of a movie theatre. Children sitting behind them describe the film which only they can see, whispering in the ears of the adults sitting in front of them. Accompanied by the soundtrack, the children’s description is a fragile but brave attempt to put into words what they see.
