‘COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW 2021’
The Last Mermaid - online event
On the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and in the framework of The Belgian Pride, BOZAR is organising Colours of the Rainbow for the fifth time. This is a day that places the LGBTQIA+ community in the spotlight and on which professionals, academics, artists and Brussels residents meet online. For this edition, artist and entrepreneur Jaouad Alloul (he/his/gender-fluid) curates an evening in which various voices within the LGBTQIA+ community are given a chance to be heard. Comedian Serine Ayari is your guide during this special evening of music, dance and theatre.
- Keynote speech by performance artist, writer and cultural worker Kopano Maroga (in English)
- Dance by Rabba to the beats of DJ Ramos Sama
- Jaouad Alloul performs the theatrical text The Last Mermaid. For this he inhabits the skin of Coco, a free-spirited femme fatale from a 1930s Brussels cabaret. A theatrical piece about what has been achieved so far but also about a battle that is not yet completely over. (In dutch, subtitled in french)
- Concert by composer and pianist Neil Akenzua
