Another great event in Brussels next Saturday 03/10/2015! There is so much to do lately that I feel like I should write a blogpost every day. Off course that’s not possible, since I also have a life 🙂 (and a fulltime job).
Nuit Blanche is a contemporary art route in the city that offers several artistic installations, performances and activities. This years edition everything is happening around the Place Saint-Cathérine. The meeting point is located at the Vismet (Quai aux Bisques & Quai au Bois à Brûler). There are 32 things to see during 1 evening so it’s better to make a selection in advance. I remember from last year that there was a long waiting line at the entrance for some activities, so I didn’t get to see everything I wanted. For this year, I chose activities that are less time bound to avoid that everybody wants to get in at the same time.
- Nazanin Fakoor – The Flower
A reflecting sculpture, combined with a poem in 18 different languages. 07:00 pm – 05:00 am @ Place du Vieux Marché aux Grains (Oude Graanmarkt).
A performance in a 3 meters high test tube, filled with water! They say it’s breathtaking… 08:00 pm – 01:00 am @ Tour Noire (Zwarte Toren) Place Sainte-Chathérine.
- Anne Blanchet – Light Drawing Outdoor
A moving installation made from some kind of steam, like a cloud moving over the floor. 07:00 pm – 05:00 am @ Quai aux Bricques & Qaui au Bois à Brûler (Vismet).
- HeHe – Radiant Tree
A radioactive tree! 07:00 pm – 05:00 am @ Square Marguerite Duras.
What I like so much about the concept of Nuit Blanche, is that you see everybody walking around with their friends, looking to have some fun. A great way to get in the mood for a party later on. There are 5 different parties, but I made up my mind really fast when I saw the program of KVS! The Lords of the Underground (USA) are coming to the ‘Bal in de Box’ hip-hop edition! Tickets are available online for €10.
