29 Sept-3 Oct 2009 at 20.00 

ETCetera presents a multilingual evening of 3 European one-act comedies, from around 1900: The Bear by Chekhov (in English), Mañana de Sol by Alvarez Quintero (in Spanish) and  L’Anglais tel qu’on le parle by Tristan Bernard (in French ).   All 3 plays will have surtitles in the other 2 languages; fittingly, all humorously explore issues of communication.

V. Monologues (23-24 April ’10)

The award-winning play, to be performed at the Warehouse Theatre as part of V-Day 2010, is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twelve years, it has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.

ETC: Absurd, absurd! (12-16 Oct ’10)

Studio Theatre, rue Waelhem 69a, 1030 Brussels

ETCetera’s next multilingual production after “Fin de Siècle” in 2009 is an evening of 3 plays dedicated to classic writers of the Absurd movement: unreal and real at the same time, and very funny.

Pic-Nic, by Fernando Arrabal in Spanish, is set in the First World War trenches; Victoria Station, by Harold Pinter in English, is about a London minicab “dispatcher” and his driver; while La Cantatrice Chauve, by Eugène Ionesco in French, is set in the English suburbs in the 1950’s.

Each will have “surtitles” in the other 2 languages.

The plays are directed by 3 of Brussels’ most experienced directors (see over), and include some very established actors such as Eduardo Aladro-Vico, Martin Whitworth, Christine Marchand, and Brian Holland.
