In Probabilities of Independent Events, Barkey returns to absurdity. Anything is possible. It can’t fail.

Intolleranza 1960 is an opera that presents more questions than answers. Can it in fact be called an ‘opera’ at all, or is its role as a statement of much greater importance? Does it transcend its own political content when it is staged today, as Intolleranza 2020?

Molly Bloom presents the inner monologue of the unfaithful wife of Leopold Bloom. A new creation by Viviane De Muynck and Jan Lauwers, based on the final chapter of James Joyce’s Ulysses.

All the good tells a story about loss and hope. A love story at a time in which Europe is sacrificing its values and a large group of people are succumbing to hate and incomprehension.

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

Coronavirus

Following the measures of the Belgian federal government aimed at halting the spread of the coronavirus, the performances of All the good and Forever in April, May and June will be postponed. New dates yet to be determined.

In times of social distancing, Needcompany believes it is important to continue to share its art. And with theatre doors closed for the foreseeable future, we made a special selection of Needcompany shows and films to beam to your living room.

In the meantime, the Needcompany team remains contactable. Please take care of yourself and others.

Day of Dance

The 5th edition of Dance Day on April 25th 2020 is cancelled. Needcompany and Peeping Tom wish they could have welcomed you to a diverse and appealing program at MILL. Unfortunately, due to the current measures to limit the further spread of the coronavirus, this edition cannot take place.

We are looking for a new date to present Goldberg Variations by George van Dam and Simon Lenski.

Please save the date. Next year, Dance Day will take place on Saturday April 24th 2021.

Magnolia @ UZ Jette

In the entrance hall of the University Hospital in Jette, Grace Ellen Barkey exhibits two site-specific works: Magnolia and Night Magnolia.

Grace Ellen Barkey transports us with her day-night images into an imaginary universe in which time no longer matters and life presents itself as a course of nature. The hall of the hospital is a transit full of crowds. And sometimes also a resting place where you can find beauty through art. - Luk Lambrecht

You can visit the exhibition until May 31st at UZ Brussel, Laarbeeklaan 101, 1090 Jette.
