ECC: The Father (23-27 October 2018)

ECC is proud to present The Father, written by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Heli Pärna, at the Warehouse Studio Theatre from October 23-27, 2018.

What is actually going on in this flat? And who are these people coming in and out of it? And is it even his flat or is he in someone else’s home? And if so, how did he get here?

According to the author, Florian Zeller, The Father is a puzzle with a missing piece and no one ever knows which piece it is”. The protagonist, André who is living with his adult daughter Anne, is looking for people to tell him the truth in an ever changing world while trying to make sense of his environment despite the reigning chaos around him. This play is a glimpse into the world of someone with dementia – an illness that leads quite a silent existence, perhaps because many people think, and even more so, hope, that it will never affect them.

A €2 donation will be made to Alzheimer Europe Foundation from each ticket sold. You can visit their website to learn more about the work and research that they do www.alzheimer-europe.org

Tickets are €15 and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc

BLOC: Oklahoma! (22-25 November 2018)

Cultural Center, Auderghem.
Stage Director – Marie Rousseaux, Music Director – Steven De Mesmaeker.

The musical Oklahoma!, set in Oklahoma territory in the early 1900s, tells the love stories between Curly and Laurey, Ado Annie and Will.
Curly, a cowboy, has problems showing his feelings for Laurey. Laurey, out of a matter of price and stubbornness, in turn does not show Curly hers. However, this makes Jud, Laurey’s Aunt’s hired hand, feel that he has chances with Laurey.
Ado Annie is torn between Will, a cowboy who has kind of promised to marry her, and Ali Hakim, a peddler and ladies’ man, who will only get married if forced to.

The iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein score of Oklahoma! inspired a new generation of Broadway musicals, pushing the boundaries of the genre. When it opened on Broadway in 1943, it changed the way modern audiences would appreciate musicals for the next 50 years. The show ran for an impressive five years and was immortalized by a Hollywood film version. The state of Oklahoma even took the title song to be the official anthem of the state, solidifying the show’s cultural impact.
