  • 23/09: One day later, the curtain opens in the second venue Minnemeers with Killjoy Quiz by director Luanda Casella, a quiz on the violence of language, at the same time incredibly funny and merciless.

  • 30/09: To top it all off, they will present of Yellow - The Sorrows of Belgium II: Rex by another resident director, Luk Perceval.

Also during the OPENING WEEK:
