La Kermesse héroïque is a three day festival taking place in Brussels across venues, including Beursschouwburg theatre and Midpoint Cafe, running January 13 to 15.
The festival takes its name from Jacques Feyder’s 1935 film about a group of women in Boom, Antwerp who welcomed and hosted Spanish militants for one night, while the men -all still traumatised by the 16th Century Spanish occupation in the years previous -hid undercover.
