Interactive concert for high school students (9th until 12th grade)
Fight radicalization! During this interactive concert we will target the disarming role music can play in the lives of young people. Music offers solace, strengthens emotions and assuages growth pains. How can music influence your world view? In a preparatory workshop art and music educators will tackle these questions with their students. Musical brainstorming will lead to a spectacular concert, filled with classical and contemporary music. All this accompanied by video images of young moviemakers from Brussels.
In partnership with BOZAR en Jeunesses Musicales de Bruxelles, Jeugd en Muziek Brussel

I imagine a world where we don’t fight, where there is no violence or hate, where there are no weapons to create hurt, where there is no prejudice against one another, where there is no anger, a world where we don’t wonder when the next tragic event will take place. I imagine a world where there is peace, love, unity, happiness, togetherness, joy, people helping one another, a world where everyone smiles and laughs and hugs one another. I would like to believe I’m not too much of a dreamer to one day see a world like this. #worldpeace #oneworld
It is BOHO Players’ pleasure to welcome Vluchtelingenwerk Vlaanderen at our two performances of La Captive. Vluchtelingenwerk is committed to helping people who are fleeing from war, violence and persecution, and defends daily the rights of refugee men, women and children. Vluchtelingenwerk will bring three witnesses to La Captive, who will tell their personal stories during our performances. BOHO Players is very pleased to thus enrich the musical story of La Captive.
