21:00     50 Birthday cakes

22:00    OPENING NIGHT - a vaudeville - Mark Tompkins & Mathieu Grenier
If at first OPENING NIGHT might seem to be simply entertainment, a show composed of comical situations and tragicomic song-and-dance numbers (like Elvis Presley’s 'Are You Lonesome Tonight', Beyoncé’s 'Run The World (Girls)',...), a more ambivalent and touching fable about the joyful yet ferocious transmission between an ageing Star and his young protégé slowly emerges. So, welcome for a good, old cabaret!

Over Beursschouwburg

Beursschouwburg is een multidisciplinair kunstencentrum, gelegen in hartje Brussel. Je kan er terecht voor performance, film, muziek, expo, debat, lezingen, feest en een drankje in beurscaf√©. Beursschouwburg biedt jonge en vernieuwende artiesten een platform. Je vindt er vaak de grote namen van morgen terug. 

Jong talent, kruisbestuivingen en plaats voor experiment staan centraal in de uiteenlopende programmeringen van zowel podiumkunsten, als film, muziek en beeldende kunst. Beursschouwburg kiest niet voor een eenduidige, maar voor een polymorfe identiteit, die naadloos aansluit bij generatie 2.0.
