Let’s not lose the North-West! Travelling theatre show performed in situ

The huge Parc Roi Baudouin/Koning Boudewijnpark is a great place for walking and unwinding, its landscapes interweaving stories from past and present. On 19 September, these stories will be told in a one-off travelling show, performed in situ by SKarab Théâtre. You’ll meet the country folk who used to live in the Molenbeek valley, a canon from the famous Dieleghem/Dielegem Abbey, a Lord of Rivieren, Baron Bonaventure, the Sisters of the Sacred Heart who are redeveloping the park, and members of local associations and Brussels Environment who are safeguarding these last remaining green spaces in North-West Brussels. Throughout the afternoon, two actors from theatre company Théâtre Coeur de Terre will collect and record the personal memories of today’s walkers.

Produced by SKarab Théâtre and Ganshoren Cultural Centre La Villa, with the support of the French Community and the Municipality of Jette.

Performed as part of La Ville des Mots 2021, organised by the cultural centres of North-West Brussels, and as part of the Heritage Days.
