The man who bought the moon

There are lots of nationalities in Brussels. All these people have their own stories, which originate from every corner of the world. The photographer Kurt Deruyter and author Johan Reyniers collected 52 ‘tales’ in and around the canal zone: folk tales, sagas, legends, fairytales etc. About an owl that thought it was ugly. About how to make stone soup. About a man who bought the moon, and plenty more. You can come and listen to these tales at the Kaaitheater. The ‘tale-tellers’ take the children and their parents to the Kaaitheater stage and tell their story there.

This autumn all the stories will be published in a book, but first they will all be read out during this afternoon!
