ECC: Dick Whittington (8-10 Jan 2016)

Following on from the successful productions of Jack & the Beanstalk in December 2013 and Aladdin in January 2015, the ECC is proud to present a brand new panto –Dick Whittington and His Magical Cat! This well-loved British tale is (very loosely!) based on the legends surrounding Richard Whittington (Lord Mayor of London from 1354-1423) and is told with humour and energy and promises to be great fun for all the family.

Dick Whittington leaves a country village with his cat, Tommy, to make his fortune in London, where the streets are paved with gold. When he arrives he finds, instead streets overrun by rats.

This launches Dick on an adventure that takes him from London to Brussels and beyond. Along the way, he meets the girl of his dreams, Alice, as well as Alderman Fitzgerald, Sarah the Cook, King Rat and many, many others, including you!

Bursting with humour, songs and magic, this show will delight young and old. Oh, yes it will!

Performances are on Friday 8 January (20:00), and Saturday and Sunday 9-10 January (13:30, 17:00), at the Auderghem Cultural Centre, Boulevard du Souverain 183, 1160 Brussels.

Tickets (€16 for adults, €12 for children) are available fromhttp://thelittleboxoffice.com/ec

ATC: Greek/English Improv (26 Jan)

Greek/English Improv Show with Bus Kai and The Ghost Sheep
Monday, January 26, 8pm (6 euro entry)
Le Cercle des Voyageurs (‘les caves’- downstairs)
19, Rue des Grands Carmes, 1000 Brussels (50m from the Manneken Pis)


After the roaring success of our English/Italian improv show with Imprevisti Su Misura, we decided to host another bilingual show, this time, for the Greek community of Brussels! The first half of the show will be in Greek (20:00) and the second half in English (21:15).

20:00 Bus Kai αυτοσχεδιάζουν;

Οι Bus Και είναι ένας θίασος θεατρικού αυτοσχεδιασμού (improv comedy theater) με έδρα την Αθήνα. Είναι ο μοναδικός θίασος θεατρικού αυτοσχεδιασμού στην Ελλάδα με σταθερή παρουσία κάθε εβδομάδα στα θέατρα της Αθήνας.

Ο θίασος απαρτίζεται από δύο άτομα, τον Μενέλαο Πρόκο και την Βασιλική Κίσσα, εκπαιδευτές θεατρικού αυτοσχεδιασμού στην ImproVIBE. Ανεβαίνουν στη σκηνή, παίρνουν κάποια απλή πρόταση από το κοινό και δημιουργούν ένα ολοκληρωμένο θεατρικό έργο μίας πράξης εκείνη τη στιγμή. Οι δυο τους. Ναι, παίζουν όλους τους ρόλους. Ναι, δημιουργούν και τα σκηνικά επί τόπου. Όχι, δεν πρόκειται να ξαναδείς την ίδια παράσταση ποτέ ξανά. Όντως, θα γελάς μέχρι δακρύων.

Δύο ηθοποιοί. Αμέτρητοι χαρακτήρες. Ταυτόχρονα!
