    This festival aims to offer contemporary theatre in original ways which capture everyone's imagination. In Brussels from 15 to 30/08/14!

    Capturing of vessels, cargo thefts, grapnels launched onto galleons filled with gold or sugar, merciless attacks or victimless raids...piracy has seen some colourful characters: brutes or vigilantes, renegades or men of honour.

    The theme for the 2014 edition is Pilotes et pirates en eaux troubles (Captains and pirates in troubled water). But rest assured, these aren't your typical pirates.

    This striking festival addresses our aimless travellings through intangible seas, only to return with objects that have no monetary value in our consumerist society.

    As today's materialistic society dominates our existence and clouds our judgement, we drift along aimlessly and confused, like a ship without a captain.

    But one thing's for certain, in the face of the banal that has taken over our stages and screens, the only effective defence is to promote creative expression and favour imagination alongside the artists who search for beauty, meaning in their actions and instinct in their creations.

    These people are guides. Captains who challenge pre-conceived ideas and show us a new, different way of thinking.

    Corsairs who challenge the norm and that that we take at face value.

    Board a brand new journey!
