Live Magazine

Special edition: Europe today

Tuesday 18 June – 20:00h


Across Europe, audiences sit – often in beautiful, national theaters – and experience journalism: reported stories, enhanced with photos, audio samples, video and live music, and assembled into a new form that you could call ‘theatrical journalism’. ​Live Magazine​ has curated and presented 59 of those journalism shows in 16 cities across Europe, in collaboration with major cultural festivals and news organisations (the ​Financial Times).

This special edition will be ​a vibrant love letter to Europe,​ a night of true stories (in English; produced with Bozar Agora). It’s a one-off – ​Tuesday June 18th at 8 pm,​ in the Art Nouveau, “violin-shaped”, 2100-seat main hall at the Center for Fine Arts, aka BOZAR.​ The show is unique, ephemeral (nothing is recorded) and 99% true. On stage, ​journalists​ (a beloved columnist from the​ Financial Times,​ an undercover reporter into the European far-right, a tech specialist on quest for her personal data), photographers​ (a World Press photo laureate, a renowned “grande dame” of documentary photography), ​artists,​ a prominent​ whistleblower​ will share tales of secrets and lies, of rise and fall, of decisive moments that changed everything, including stories behind the origins of Brexit and the birth of a fundamental EU directive
