See you all soon at BabelBühne!
We’re almost ready to welcome you all for a nice Summer in the cosy oasis of BabelBühne.
Partly thanks to Burgerbegroting (Antwerp District) we can gather again at the BabelFestival. And so the story continues, after Tower of Babel (2019) and the first season of BabelBühne (2020)...
>> We are already very busy with building and gardening, but here you can find out more about the programmation. Follow us on Facebook!
>> KICK-OFF: Sunday 4 July 2021, 16-18h <<
Wednesdays for children from 4 to 12 y, organised together with Bib Permeke. Storytellers take the children on a multilingual journey and let them wander in exciting tales. Afterwards they can recreate their multicultural experiences during creative handicrafts.
>> On Wednesdays from 14 till 16h - tickets
On Thursdays the Bühne turns into an open-air cinema. The international programme is a beautiful selection composed by Adams Mensah, a Ghanese-Belgian film director. Immerse yourself in the emotions of tragic heroes close and far.
>> On Thursdays, from 21 till 23h. Start of the film at sundown.
Fridays from 18h-21h
With BabelBouf, both cooks and musicians offer us the best of many different worlds. Visitors slide at the table in the open air for a freshly prepared meal from the kitchen, after enjoying a musical/poetical appetizer.
>> On Fridays, from 18 till 23h. Live music at 19h, dinner is served at 20h.
Every Saturday, the Bühne gets somehow hijacked by local talents and their own artistic languages: all kinds of artistic disciplines, from underground beats to eccentric performances and rap.
>> On Saturdays from 19 till 23h.
Whoever feels like sitting, hanging, lying down and reading a book in the shades of the Bühne, can come over anytime: the library is always open, and you can also lend a book if you want to.
Birder & GolfGever -> Verbeke FoundationFrom sunday 2 May until 31 October 2021 Birder and GolfGever move to the Verbeke Foundation, especially for the exposition Natura Naturata.Birder is a high-tech device for breeding birds and a futuristic sound box. Each species of bird propagates a vision for the future. Together they play the music of the future.This installation got the most conveniant spot: next to the bird cages.
A little further you can chill on GolfGever, an enormous wave on which you can sit or lie down. Nestle in its curves, allow yourself to float and get in touch with yourself and others.
