See you at the Place des Martyrs

Imagine a farandole with dancers acting in unison, shifting, moving about and clapping, without any apparent rhyme or reason… Flashkask is a quirky audio tour with a difference, directly inspired by the area in which it takes place. Equipped with an audio headset, participants follow the instructions given by a strange duo, who take them on a journey. During the tour, they will learn about the place, its history and the characters who live in the surrounding area, through snippets of anecdotes. They will discover previously unnoticed details in their environment as they dance, sing and express themselves in sign language, following the instructions delivered via the audio headset firmly positioned over their ears. There is nothing difficult to accomplish, and no performance or feat involved; simply listen to the soft voice guiding you through the movements you should make, telling stories and enticing you onwards, and just throw yourself into the activity! As passers-by won’t be able to hear anything, they will wonder what on earth you are all up to, before experiencing a strong urge to get their own headset, join the merry band and share the experience. Members of the non-profit association Les Volontaires de Bruxelles 1830 will also be on hand over the two days to facilitate access to the crypt, a highly symbolic site in Belgium’s history.

A partnership between La Maison CFC (édition et libairaie), La Sacrée Bonne Adresse, Amadeus&Co and Les Volontaires de Bruxelles 1830.
