Benefit Malcolm X in concert & Onbezongen
KVS keeps both feet on the ground, in the city and the world. So we don’t want to remain blind to that world, but to take responsibility for it alongside our artistic work – the productions we make and present. Winter is on its way. Uprooted migrants wander the streets a stone’s throw from our theatre. We want to do something for them. Having seen the emotional appeal by the actress Marie-Aurore D’Awans to help the refugees in Brussels, we have decided to make a contribution.
On Tuesday 20 February 2018 we shall be holding a benefit concert of Malcolm X in our theatre at the fixed price of €25. This much-praised theatre concert, with the first-rate musicians of the Brussels Jazz Orchestra, the fervent hip hop of Poetic Pilgrimage and the penetrating voices of Junior Akwety, Onika Meugens-Henderson and Muhammet Sahan, guarantees world-class music!
Or celebrate Valentine's Day with Valentijn :) Valentijn Dhaenens wanted to do something for the charity himself and on Wednesday 14 February 2018, he plays the homo politicus in his monologue Onbezongen.
All the earnings will go in full to the Deux Euros Cinquante action group. And feel free to hang around at the bar, because the bar takings will also be donated. If you can’t come to this special performance of Malcolm X or Onbezongen, but would like to help anyway, as from January you can opt to donate an extra gift when you book tickets for any performance.
‘Deux Euros Cinquante’ is based on the idea that everyone can make a contribution, however small, to provide more decent relief for refugees and people without papers. Two euros fifty cents is the sum that the organisation needs for each food package, to offer a healthy meal to the refugees who are being hounded all over Brussels, but especially in the Maximilian Park and the area round the North Station. This action group concentrates exclusively on providing food aid. They collect money to buy food, which they then give to the refugees in individual food packages.
