Belgian rules – Belgium rules

Jan Fabre / Troubleyn


The 16 october
At 19h30

Seeing Belgium through the eyes of Jan Fabre, the country’s most subversive and inventive artist. Like Fellini in the film Roma, here Fabre celebrates his complex and crazy country. The choreographer/director/plastic artist calls in Rubens, Stromae and Monty Python for a declaration of love/hate for this small, contradictory nation. With the help of a cast of performers, he sets off in search of the Belgian identity, through theatre, dance and Surrealism, an essential element.
