Woensdag 14 januari 2015 — Dear Sir/Madam,
On the 5th of February, the Brussels arts centre Beursschouwburg will celebrate its 50th anniversary. That makes Beursschouwburg one of the oldest Flemish arts centres in Brussels. This 50th anniversary is the ultimate occasion for a 50 hour kick-off party, followed by a 5 month birthday-programme.
"50 hours of Beursschouwburg. A non-stop start" offers a divers programme, including: food & drinks, performances & shows, concerts, workshops, parties, family-time, camping in Marriott, a commuter-concert, exhibitions, a vinyl-markt...
All the activities during 50 hours of Beursschouwburg are free and Beursschouwburg is unfortunatly not able to make reservations*: 'first come, first served'.
* Except for: "Under The Stars at Marriott", Breakfast Delivery and Wake-Up Service.
We kick-off on Thursday 5th of February, from 7 pm onwards:
19:00 Speeches, reception & vernissage
Several dignitaries welcome you. Have a drink and visit our latest exhibition The Future = Beurssc50uwburg that winds through our hallways.
20:00 Rocket Launch - Miet Warlop
The Belgian artist and queen of metamorphosis Miet Warlop transforms into a cosmic queen
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!
23:00 The Oscillation (UK)
melancholic psych rock
00:00 Disappears (US)
Other artists in the programme of "50 hours of Beurschouwburg": Superamas, OFFscreen, Dissapears, The Oscillation, Floris Vanhoof, Bernard Van Eeghem, 18+, Feiko Beckers, Jefta van Dinther, Darkbeats, Bas Nylon, Bronks, ...
The complete and detailed programme is available on our website (click here).
We sincerely hope you welcome you on Thursday, 5th of February, one of the other days during the opening weekend or during the following months of celebrations.
