Rue Jules Destrée 355
- MAPS: Google Maps
Explore 120 years of theatrical creation in French-speaking Belgium. Archives, photos and rare objects await you in Quaregnon, until 12/12/13.
For two months, discover archived pieces and never-before-seen documents, portraits on canvas, decors, models and costumes.
All these original objects have been preciously preserved by the Archives et Musée de la Littérature.
In short, thousands of discoveries await you! From Pelléas and Mélisande (1892) to the Blue Bird (1909) including the veil of the Fée Lumière worn by Georgette Leblanc.
You can also admire the constructivist decor of the Cocu magnifique (1922) by Fernand Crommelynck, and the masks of Michel de Ghelderode.
In fact, it's the first phase of French-speaking Belgian theatre which is being exhibited.
A second part of the exhibition will be dedicated to post-war theatre.
From La Ville à voile (1967) by Paul Willems to Jocaste (1981) by Michèle Fabien, via Jim le Téméraire (1972) or La Passion selon Pier Paolo Pasolini (1978) by René Kalisky, Un Faust (1985) or Conversation en Wallonie (1977) by Jean Louvet... they are all different kinds of aesthetic responses to the impacts of the Second World War.
The contemporary extreme will also be showcased through posters and Alice Piemme's ironic composition, Guingette en bord de scène (2012).
Last but not least, two literary evenings (with Jean Louvet, Marc Quaghebeur, Jean-Marie Piemme and Daniel Charneux) are scheduled for 21 November and 12 December.
