Dance and music events at Marni Theatre in Brussels
Marni Theatre’s upcoming cultural season is brimming with shows starring international performers and influences, from theatre and dance to circus and music.
Among the 30 shows lined up at the cosy Ixelles venue is the dance performance Anon on 5 and 6 October (pictured above). The new work choreographed by Hunmok Jung, formerly with the Peeping Tom company, poses the question, “What would life look like for two survivors of a post-apocalyptic world?”
Meet an old man suffering memory problems and his handicapped grandson who together encounter a woman with a bionic body. The stage is set for the characters to show off their inner strength, while displaying the essence of human dignity.
As an extension of his 2021 dance film Uragano (top 10 selection of the Seoul Dance Film festival and independent Montreal Festival of Film), Jung draws on his Korean heritage and experience of Western culture to explore the opposing attitudes to hierarchy in society.
The Marni has a long tradition for hosting jazz events, whether festivals gracing its main stage or intimate concerts at its bar. Appearing on 13 October is the group Farfar (pictured above), an ensemble performing music with Mediterranean influences, from Spanish-flavoured grooves to melodies inspired by the sounds of North Africa.
With new EP Calima set to be released on 18 November, the Antwerp instrumental group is currently touring around the country.
