Adopt-A-Brick BBQ & Quiz

The Adopt-A-Brick Quiz will be taking place this Friday, 18 September, at 7.30pm at the Warehouse, Rue Waelhem 73, 1030 Schaerbeek.

It’s going to be a fun night out, with prizes, a bar, and a great atmosphere.
Teams of up to four people are invited to bring along their pens, paper and vast trivia knowledge to pit their wits against the best of Brussels!
To bring a team to join in the fun for just 10 euros each (40 euros per team), just fill in the online form here.


Hamlet Brick

It’s easy to have an idea, in this case “let’s have a BBQ/Fete as part of the Warehouse Fundraising Project”.  The reality only comes about because a lot of people put in a lot of work to make things happen.  Blannaid Naghten and Colma O’Luanaigh organised the day for us and many others baked, cooked, prepared food and donated prizes and saleable goods.  A donkey was drawn, a treasure map painted, a bottle stall wheel made, the buzz-buzz game created…  All we needed was great weather and for lots of people to turn up.

Well, we had both. The BBQers, drink sellers and small army of stall holders were kept busy all afternoon with about 150 people coming through the gates that afternoon.  Also, huge thanks to those who topped and tailed our day by setting up and clearing away.

The aim had been to bring together a group of people who were prepared to give time and money to a common cause, the Warehouse.  It ended up being far more than that, with people catching up with friends they hadn’t seen for a while, a chance to sit in the sun and eat together, have fun playing games and spend time browsing through books.

It was a lovely way to kick-start the campaign.

Thank you all!


Quiz results

Hamlet Brick

First of all: huge thanks to all who participated!

Secondly: megathanks to Graham Andrews and Conrad Toft for putting the questions together, helping with the organisation and being quiz masters on the night.

The team I was on, Clueless, suffered immensely due to me being, yes, mostly clueless. 

CONGRATULATIONS though to winners THE BARD’S BEST who led from the start.  Hats off to you! Thanks to the entry fee and sales of mugs and brownies, we raised approximately €580 for the Warehouse Project, which is pretty good going. We aim to hold another quiz night early next year, so watch this space! (I’ll aim to get more than 3 answers next time).

Once again – thanks!



The AGM of the American Theatre Company will take place on 7th September at 7pm at the Warehouse. All are welcome to attend.

1. Approval of minutes of previous meeting
2. Review of Season 2010-2011
3. Financial Review
4. Election of New Board
Preview of Season 2011-2012

Method acting workshop


Award Wining Director Robert Castle

June 11 – 22, 2012, in Brussels 
Sense memory exercises are the pillars of Lee Strasberg’s Method. Robert Castle has continued in the tradition of Strasberg and Peggy Feury in developing the actor’s effectiveness with his imagined experience exercises and his unique relaxation technique. Along with movement exercises and a new form of Affective Memory, these exercises form a regular training for the actor and are precious tools in acting truthfully on stage and in front of the camera. 
During the workshop, Robert Castle addresses various myths about the Method and helps you to layer your prior training onto it and his personally crafted techniques. His version of the Method is a very effective way to help you deepen your realistic acting, put away your inner judge and free your imagination. 
The goal will be to reach that zone where the actor is deeply connected and interacts effectively with the place, the circumstances of the play and the other characters, to the point where the acting becomes spontaneous and unconscious, and the character work daring and unique.


The morning starts with a full body relaxation relying on deep work in breathing. It continues with exercises of growing complexity, including sense memory and imagined experience. Every participant goes through the exercises at the same time, at their own level. There is no audience. 
The afternoon is dedicated to monologue and scene work. You will work on one monologue and one scene with a partner. The texts are chosen by Robert Castle according to the needs and desires you have expressed before the workshop and sent about one week prior. Though you will find Mr.Castle to be a very demanding director, the scenes are a ground of experimentation, free from result expectations.

Robert Castle

Robert Castle began his career as an actor, studying with Lee Strasberg and Peggy Feury and working with well-known artists such as Sean Penn, Jeff Goldblum and Jane Fonda. He taught at the State University of New York, UCLA and the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute before co-founding with Alejandra Orozco International Theatre New York. 
His technique, which integrates Stanislavski and Strasberg’s practices as well as personally developed exercises, has made him the most sought-after instructor at the Lee Strasberg Institute. He now travels and leads acting workshops and master classes all around the world, which have become very popular among the professional acting community. 
He is also a director and has won many awards including the Best Director and Best Play of the Year Awards in Brazil for his production The Diary of Anne Frank in 2010. The leading actor and actress were also nominated.

Practical information

Who: The workshop is open to actors and performers from other disciplines. Places are limited to 16. 
When: 10 days from June 11th to 22nd, Monday to Friday, 10am – 5pm 
Where: Carthago Delenda Est, rue Sylvain Denayer, 51 – 1070 Bruxelles 
Price : 870 € 
You will need to rehearse with your partner after the workshop hours and during the weekend. Please consider whether you have enough free time.

Join practitioners from the world-class Royal Shakespeare Company for a series of intensive workshops. Throughout the week you will work to explore and unlock the language of Shakespeare and bring the text to life. The course will continue to explore how one approaches staging a Shakespeare production.
Approaching Shakespeare will be led in three parts by RSC practitioners: Firstly, Voice practitioner Victoria Williams (recently worked on the 7 times Olivier winning Matilda) will be exploring voice and text. Following her, Anna Morrissey from the RSC Movement department will be working with attendees on physicalising the text and Helen Leblique (RSC Directing practitioner) will be closing the week by putting scenes together, implementing the techniques explored earlier in the week.

Improv Sunday with Shawn Kinley (16 Mar 2014)

Improv Sunday with Shawn Kinley
March 16, 14.00, 10 euros per person

The Warehouse (Bar Room, not Studio)
73 Rue Waelhem, Schaerbeek

Shawn Kinley, Canadian improviser extraordinaire, will be focusing on technique and inspiration to set off fantastic improv scenes. Send me an email if you are interested in participating and I’ll reseve your slot!

Shawn travels the planet looking for people to play with. Sure, sure… the word, “PLAY” sounds unprofessional and childish but for 7-9 months of the year Shawn plays with businesses, arts groups, universities, sports groups and even the military.

His wide experience with mime, mask, physical theatre and street art resonates strongly in the way he improvises and teaches.

Gala poetry reading

Gala Event: The Story of Gitanjali

On Sunday 23 September, as the first part of the Brussels charity gala film premiere of his film version of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s dance-drama Chitrangada, Obhi Chatterjee will be directing a one-hour show called The Story of Gitanjali to mark the 100th anniversary of the English Gitanjali. The show features thirteen poems from the collection of poetry which brought Tagore into the international spotlight and led to him winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.

Obhi is looking for actors to read these poems on stage (one poem per actor), interspersed with a narrator and live songs by Indian singers and musicians. English and French subtitles, as well as images related to the narrative, will be projected on a screen above the stage.

To highlight Tagore’s cross-cultural appeal and his integrationist philosophy, each poem will be read in a European language other than English. The actors/languages for which he already has actors on board or in mind are French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Hungarian, as well as possibly Polish and Slovak. If you are a native speaker and are interested in participating, please contact Obhi at . He has outlined the idea behind the show on his blog:

More information

The poems in the Gitanjali are numbered from 1 to 103. Obhi has posted links to the online versions of the Gitanjali he has found so far in his blog post (English, French, Spanish and Dutch). The poems in the script are numbers 44, 35, 18, 74, 49, 1, 63, 57, 15, 97, 56, 3 & 96 (in that order). You can choose which poem you would like to read, provided that it has been translated into your language (whether it is freely available online or as a book). Only the last poem has to be in English, to match the quotation which goes before it.

Practical details

Location: Gold Hall, Square Brussels (at the foot of the Mont des Arts, between the Old England and Brussels Central Station).

Dress: It will be a charity gala event and so each actor should wear either national costume or black tie/gala dress. The actors will be given a Tagore-style, batik ceremonial scarf to be draped over their shoulders during the performance.

Time involvement: the one-hour show will be from 8pm-9pm, preceded by a stage rehearsal from 4pm-6pm. Apart from the stage rehearsal with all the actors, singers and musicians, Obhi would like to meet each actor at least once in the coming weeks for an audition and to rehearse their cue individually.

Charity: 50% of any profits from the evening will be donated to Santiniketan Sishutirtha, an orphanage/school in Tagore’s home town which is run according to Tagore’s educational philosophy  ( For more details, see .

Reimbursement: either € 100 and a packed dinner for the actor, or two complimentary tickets including champagne and Indian dinner. Your choice.

Other: the live show will be filmed and relayed to audiences in other venues (possibly including museums, libraries and colleges in North America), as well as being recorded for future use. Performers will need to sign a standard performer consent form (see attached). The formal organiser of the event is Inner Eye Ltd, the UK company of Kaberi Chatterjee who stars in and produced Chitrangada and the other two films in the Tagore dance film trilogy.

Context: The Story of Gitanjali will be followed by a 20-minute interval, after which the world premiere of the film Chitrangada will be shown. Before The Story of Gitanjali and the film, there will be a welcome champagne and, ideally, an Indian ‘walking dinner’ in the foyer.

ATC: Picasso At The Lapin Agile (30 Nov-9 Dec)

ATC presents:

‘Picasso At The Lapin Agile’ by Steve Martin

Directed by Jeremy Zeegers

30th of Nov, 1st, 2nd & 5th to 9th of December, 8pm


The Warehouse Studio Theatre, 69a Waelhemstraat, Schaerbeek.

Tickets available here (€15)


It’s 1904. Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso – both in their twenties, neither of them yet famous – spend an evening at a bar called the Lapin Agile in Montmartre, Paris.

When two of the most inspired minds of the 20th century meet by chance, sparks fly. But is it genius igniting or egos flaring when an artist and a scientist – each destined to revolutionize an era – square off and size each other up? Continue reading
