Cirq plays the Russian Revolution

One hundred years ago the Russian Revolution took place between February and October 1917. An event that changed the world.

Fifteen years ago the Handelsbeurs was resurrected on the Kouter in Ghent. An event that changed the city’s music scene. Now you can storm the building from the square and throw yourself into a dazzling victory celebration, Russian style.

On Kouter square

Spend the afternoon on the square while being animated by the team of CirQ in an old school Russian atmosphere.

  • Chop some wood and get it burned with a 15 years stamp in the forge.
  • Make banners for the revolution in the screen printing atelier.
  • Peel some potatoes to make vodka.
  • Eat Russian specialties and have some pig on a spit.
  • Die Verdammte Spielerei plays Russian sing along songs, opera singer Natalia Avanova sings her heart out and ensemble Urga plays Russian traditionals.
