The National Theatre goes on holiday
As summer comes to an end, the National Theatre is setting up its stage in different places in the country. Various outdoor shows will be performed in Marchin, Jette and then Jumet as Ouvertures.
In accordance with official and health regulations, none of the shows, short pieces, concerts and citizen workshops taking place in outdoor spaces will host more than 200 people in the afternoon or evening. The entire programme will take place in natural areas, taking over the spaces, the lights, and the sunset.
On August 28, 29 and 30, the National Theatre leaves for Marchin and joins forces with "Latitude 50 - circus and street arts centre" and the "Grand Tour". Ten shows are on offer, ranging from the intimate, punk juggling of the Compagnie Scratch to the sexuality of orchids as explained by the Compagnie Gazon-Nève and the crazy world of Fritland by Denis Laujol.
On 5 and 6 September, the National joins forces with the "Atelier 34zero Muzeum". Numerous shows will be performed, including performances by the small puppet and stuffed toy theatre of the Compagnie Victor B., which takes a pop at political correctness and capitalist cynicism, and the hits of the 90s revisited by The Nerds.
For its last holiday weekend, on 12 and 13 September, Ouvertures is joining up with the "Urban Farm of the Future" in Jumet. This in an opportunity to meet most of the artists who will have travelled with the National Theatre during this end-of-summer tour: le Corridor, Jasmine Tamaz, la Cie Victor B., Francoise Bloch and Greg Houben, Lisette Lombé and Éléonore Dock, Peggy Lee Cooper, Rachel Ponsonby and Perry Rose, Mauro Paccagnella, les Tripotes, Mouss Sarr, Denis Laujol and others.
