Yesterday the first Belgian performance of Illusion of Purity took place in the LR6 venue in Brussels’ Marollen district. The attendance wasn’t high, but those who were there said to have enjoyed it a lot, which obviously means a lot more than numbers. I hope the audience will take home some food for thought, as this is obviously the main goal of Illusion of Purity as a project. Thanks to those who were there and of course to the people running LR6 for making this performance possible.
Illusion of Purity performs again next week, at Thursday 16th May, when the project participates in the Citylicious Heart event. This event is a variety show organised by university students, with music, comedy and indeed poetry (and a party after the final act !). The event is part of the Artbeats Festival going on from 13th until 17th May.
DETAILS OF THE PERFORMANCE:

Thanks to a group of enthousiast VUB university students for organising this and inviting Illusion of Purity for the poetry part of the event. An interview with Illusion of Purity has been done as well by the organisers of this event, and has been published on the famous Belgian website "De Wereld Morgen" (The World Tomorrow). The interview is in Dutch.

Thanks to those who were at LR6 last night. Next destination: VUB university in Brussels!
PS: Please do send us a message should you know any venue where another poetry reading can be organised. We are constantly on the outlook for new venues where the message against the taboos can be spread! Any advice or address of a venue would be very much appreciated, because, as we often say: La lutte continue … The struggle goes on …
