Following the success of Isabella’s room (2004), which looked at Lauwers’ family history, he is now exploring the history of Hertmans’ family, somewhere between art and war, and in the midst of the Flemish struggle.

Jan Lauwers starts out from the performers’ family trees and is writing a new story based on their various nationalities, cultures and languages.

‘No one can sustain constant praise of life. Death or, rather, the finiteness of human life deserves a song or a dance too.’

A concert by a band that is looking the wrong way.

Needcompany has moved to Molenbeek

After 23 years, Needcompany is moving from the centre of Brussels to the former Gosset tobacco factory in Gabrielle Petitstraat in Molenbeek. This multifaceted building was built by the art deco architect Adrien Blomme between the wars. The move launches a new and important stage in Needcompany’s thirty-year existence; it opens the doors to young creatives, because the aim is to make this building more broadly accessible. One example is Kuiperskaai, a collective of performers, musicians, artists and writers, which will be given a workspace.
