Throughout the season 19-20, Flagey and Goethe-Institut Belgien present a joint initiative, “Les Deutschlands”. During various concerts, lectures and debates, we will present today’s Germany in all its diversity. Flagey will be hosting some of the greatest German performers and composers of classical and jazz music, and bring together eminent scientists, thinkers, artists, filmmakers and writers, who will share their vision on Germany with each other and with us.
- Les Deutschlands: a literary discovery
Lecture performance + Jens Düppe Quartet on S
Go and spend an evening with us as we journey through the rich literature of our neighbouring country, Germany. The theme throughout is Germany as a country of arrival and departure. Belgian actors will read classics of 20th century Germanic literature and the German authors Olga Grjasnowa, Terézia Mora and Thomas Meinecke will discuss their visions of the future of country in which they live, and read appropriate passages from their work. The evening will be enriched musically by Germany’s Jens Düppe jazz quartet.

- Cees Nooteboom, a world traveller in conversation with Laure Adler, author/journalist
Sunday 27 october 2019
The Dutch author Cees Nooteboom is one of the great masters of European literature. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages. He is a poet, romanticist and traveller, always roaming and endlessly curious. After all, you get to know yourself when you travel. The committed traveller finds himself in the eye of the storm. Nooteboom has a predilection for Spain, Latin America, but also Germany: In the late 80s, he lived in Berlin and witnessed the fall of the Berlin Wall. He talks about his experiences with Laure Adler, French writer, journalist and biographer of Marguerite Duras.
