The death of Pieter Bruegel the Elder 450 years ago is the pretext for the large-scale event The World of Bruegel, opening at the Open-Air Museum in Bokrijk on April 6th 2019. Laika joins it with a theatre performance that plays on the senses. In Bravo! mister Bruegel a group of actors and musicians bring Bruegel’s famous painting The Battle between Carnival and Lent back to life. Laika also lets you literally taste Bruegel. You can visit our mobile kitchen for a sip of Kleyn Bier and a piece of Paradise Waffle, both created by Laika and inspired by 16th-century ingredients. Let yourself be immersed in the Diorama of the Senses in the Mikke van Lo, where sounds, bits of music and smells draw you into Bruegel’s painting.
At the beginning of March, the On the road team moved to Sweden where, under the wing of Riksteatern, the show will be performed in far-flung corners of the Swedish countryside over a period of two months.
