"Bruxelles sur scènes", the theatre-cafe festival

Every year, in November, Bruxelles sur scènes shines the spotlight on local culture and defends small, local theatres known as 'théâtres de poche' (pocket theatres), neighbourhood cabarets and small venues. From stand-up to jazz concerts, via magic and comedy, close to a dozen locations offer an exceptional programme. It's a chance to get away from it all and meet the people who work behind the scenes to create the 'Brusseleir' soul and multicultural identity of the capital.  

Thank you for the music!
