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 pride and stubbornness, in turn does not show Curly her true feelings, either. However, this makes Jud, her Aunt’s hired hand, feel that he has a chance 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.

This 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.

ECC Panto: Robin Hood & the Babes in the Wood (18-20 January, 2019)

The journey to Sherwood Forest has begun. ECC are proud to present Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood which will be performed in Auderghem Cultural Centre from January 18-20, 2019.

This hilarious never-ever-before-seen version of the traditional tale promises to be one of the most spectacular family pantomimes performed on the Brussels stage.

The evil Sheriff of Nottingham hatches a wicked plan to marry Maid Marian for her money. But first he has to get rid of the Babes – Maid Marian’s Belgian cousins. It’s down to our most famous outlaw Robin Hood to save the day, with a little help from his Merry Men, his trusty steed and the lovely Maid Marian.

Enjoy plenty of songs, dances, stunning scenery, special effects and superb costumes…topped off by all-round slapstick and silliness. Festive entertainment does not come any better!

Tickets are €16 for adults, €12 for children and are available from www.thelittleboxoffice.com/ecc.

BSS: 1st Annual Brussels Shakespeare Summer Festival (20-29 Juin, 2019)

One ticket, three plays and our Sunday Shakespeare Festival Day!

Get a lovely dose of theatre just before the summer break.

The first week enjoy the double feature of original plays ‘Mopsa And Dorcas Hit the Town’ and ‘Nadir Nachtmerrie’. The second week the BSS is presenting the classic ‘Henry V’.

During this festival we offer you three different takes on Shakespeare’s plays with ‘Mopsa And Dorcas’, inspired by the characters of the tragedy of ‘A Winter’s Tale’. ‘Nadir Nachtmerrie’ is inspired by one of Shakespeares most popular comedies, ‘A Midsummer night’s dream’, but viewed from the other side of the mirror. This is a tale you know, but not as you know it.
We’re finishing with the history play ‘Henry V’, picking up the story where ‘Henry IV’ stopped.

So with this combo ticket you get a peek into the wonderful world of the Bard.

If this has wet your appetite, come join us on the Shakespeare Sunday Social, for a hopefully sunny afternoon with drinks, food and entertainment.
