Belgian culture: Art and music make confinement easier


In our latest Belgian culture article we look at how Belgium is coping behind closed doors. Many have gone virtual, offering up exhibitions and concerts.

In this period of containment, BOZAR has closed its doors but remains very active. Because culture cannot be confined, BOZAR has decided to continue to offer you, via its social networks, an artistic programming that shows the artistic and cultural diversity of BOZAR.

If you can’t participate to culture, culture will come to you. You can enjoy music, expo, theatre, film, dance, lectures and debates and many more artistic expressions that make BOZAR so rich. From your living room you will be able to continue to share moments of deep emotions despite the circumstances we are going through.

BOZAR will regularly offer you a new confinement culture feature to discover. New content will be shared on a regular basis, check it out here.

If opera is your thing then look no further than La Monnaie’s excellent previous operas. The Virtual Season 2, including Madama Butterfly, Tales of Hoffmann and MacBeth, is available available online until 15 June.

AB is also doing its bit to help you ease the quarantine pain during the coming weeks. Make yourself comfortable and get ready for the show. Every night they highlight a past AB concert, including Blackwave (tonight), and previously Placebo and Babyshambles. Sit back, enjoy and remember: AB loves you.

Blackwave, the hip-hop duo from Antwerp, spares no effort to start a funky party with sexy grooves and up-tempo feel-good raps. Always coming to you with an extensive live-band! To watch these concerts click here.
