Festival

GalaGallait #5

7-9 June 2024

Over the next few years, we’ll be inviting you regularly to our GalaGallait: festive weekends at 80 rue Gallait in Schaerbeek. We’ll be presenting a variety of short stuff – most of them works in progress – combined with concerts, exhibitions, food and drinks. Welcome to our Gallait80 house for unexpected discoveries and encounters!

GalaGallait #5 runs from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 June 2024.

TICKETS (7,5€) can be purchased on site.

● Winkel over te nemen/Commerce à remettre (expo) ● Artists Lisa Matthys and Arno Boey worked together with the young teenagers from Campus Kompas in our street. They are creating new publicity boards based on some ‘mood boards’ by the teenagers.

SWEAT DREAMS (sauna sessions) ● In Sweat Dreams, you enter a real sauna, shaped like a golden pine cone and designed by Collectif NAR. A unique experience in an impressive sculptural object.

MIJN BEST (try-out) ● Nele Van den Broeck does her best too often. She’s always been a good girl, she’s always got good marks at school and she’s always eaten all the vegetables on her plate. But she’s constantly overworked and exhausted. She’s going to turn forty, she’s too old for this, she’s got to do it. It’s time to finally become a bad girl.
Mijn best will be Nele Needs A Holiday’s first solo show, with new songs and far too long speeches. It won’t premiere until next year, but at GalaGallait, Nele will be doing a try-ou, putting together what she’s written during her three-week residency at Gallait80.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re the only loozer on Earth? Don’t worry, Nele is here to cheer you up with a series of recognisable, self-deprecating songs. Bittersweet has never tasted so good.

YSMÉ (concert + DJ set) ● Ysmé is a rapper from Brussels. She won the 2021 edition of Soundtrack at the Ancienne Belgique. She raps in English and Flemish and makes colourful hip-hop with a pop sound. With her live show full of power and energy, she’s sure to get you dancing!

THE LEESCLUB (readings) ● On Sunday 9 June, we will first go to vote. Then we will read a play in front of an audience. We don’t know yet which one. Perhaps a text about politics, perhaps not.
