Cancellation Festival Images Sonores 2020
Given the current circumstances related to Covid-19, the Centre Henri Pousseur, in consultation with all partners, has taken the decision to cancel the Images Sonores 2020 festival, which was originally scheduled to begin on April 30.
We regret to have to take this decision today, but given the current situation, it is no longer possible to guarantee the organisation of the festival, as well as the intended artistic level. We deeply regret to disappoint the public and the artists in this way, and we thank everyone for the expressions of support and understanding already received.
Together with the various partners, the Centre Henri Pousseur is currently studying the possibility of presenting the various programmes at a later date or integrating them into new initiatives. Several creations of the festival will be to be discovered during the concert within the framework of the 50th anniversary of the Centre in Brussels (the Senghor), on October 24th, 2020. As soon as the new dates of the different projects are decided, they will be communicated through the usual communication channels of the Centre Henri Pousseur.
