Burning Ice - The Botanical Gardens houses the oldest European seed bank. It keeps the seeds of rare indigenous wild plants and there is a particular focus on its collection of wild beans and fabaceous plants. It is only very exceptionally that it is possible to have a guided tour of this unique seed bank.
Burning Ice - Following her splendid Animalia during Burning Ice #6, we are inviting the Brussels theatre-maker Isabelle Dumont once again, this time with her new production Hortus Minor. With words, music and a superb collection of 'rarities', she tells the story of our relationship with plants.
Dancing in the sand. That is Dansand! This dance festival offers a lot of great stuff on and adjacent to the beach at Ostend: dance solos, group choreographies, duets with live music, performances, improvisations, workshops, happenings, etc.
Even walking is a pure form of dance! Rosas organizes an extended flashmob, in which you walk from the gates of the Brussels pentagon to the Grand Place at a glacial pace. Participate in a workshop – headed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker herself – which shifts gears into a real dance party.
