Speakeasy Spoken Word BXL is back at KBR! The multilingual poetry collective enters into dialogue with James Ensor, searching for words in his carnival of cacophony. The poets dive into his secret world and work their way through his masks and metaphors. During the closing weekend of the exhibition “James Ensor. Inspired by Brussels“, Speakeasy artistically introduces you to the imaginary world of this great Belgian artist. Your journey ends with an open mic overlooking the Mont des Arts.
