It’s quite a special week in the Belgian cultural calendar, with concerts, performances and more back on the agenda after an endless corona-induced hiatus. We love it. See you there!
Mini festival: Music & more at Brasserie Atlas
From 10 to 11 June Brussels
Opening: Under the stairs and by the fire at Mendes Wood DM
Opens Saturday, 12 June Brussels
British artist Michael Dean, who lives and works in London, investigates relationship between text and physicality, exploring the three-dimensional possibilities of language. Mixing practices of sculptors, writers, and typographers, he often communicates through a personal alphabet of human-scale shapes. “Under the stairs and by the fire” is on view at Mendes Wood DM in Brussels until 14 August.
Grand re-opening: Charleroi Danse
Thursday, 10 June Brussels & Charleroi
Choreography center Charleroi Danse is back, with an eclectic program in Brussels as well as in Charleroi. In the capital, there’s now a brand new outdoor stage gracing the courtyard, built in collaboration with Decoratelier, surrounded by food trucks, a bar, and lanterns. A highlight in its Walloon home are the performances taking place in different parks, combining dance with family-friendly picnics under the open sky. Find the full program here.
Music meets mini-golf: Trastiempo at Beatrijs
Sunday, 13 June, 13h00 Antwerp
At Minigolf Beatrijs, you can play a round of miniature golf, have a drink, grab a bite to eat, and even enjoy a concert of Argentine tango this Sunday. Taking the stage will be Trastiempo, consisting of Diego Faes and Carl Cappele. By the way, the 19 golf lanes have been reinvented by 9 different visual artists. It’s definitely not your usual mini golf course, and attracts a crowd that’s part locals part artsy crowd. Entrance is free!
