Traditions are there to be kept. This is why Grand Casino Brussels Viage will once again be organising Viage Wonderland this year, albeit revamped. This year, the Viage winter wonder days are all about burlesque, better known as the art of seduction. Every Friday you can enjoy a stimulating burlesque show with live music and in the company of several very charming male and female Santas every Friday night. A merry Christmas indeed!

Live tunes & the art of the tease

Burlesque reached its peak in the Flying 40’s and the Fabulous 50’s, but has been achieving success again these past few years, among others, because of Dita Von Teese, the well-known American burlesque artist.

During Viage Wonderland you are fully submerged in the enchanting world of seduction, cabaret and humour, each time with a different touch. Curious about what to expect? Then drift off with the following words: dreamy sultry jazzy decadence, enticing red hair, cabaret in duet with burlesque and a ravishing glass of champagne that will certainly surprise you. All this is served especially for you on wonderful live music that will certainly warm you up.

All I want for X-mas

Ho ho ho… there obviously can be no Viage Wonderland without the necessary portion of Christmas & glamour. Decorated Christmas trees filled with shiny baubles, festive streamers, atmospheric lights and wonderful gifts. Yes, you’ve read this correctly: Viage will be handing out nine fantastic presents a day in a raffle with prizes with a total value of a whopping €7,000!

The presence of attractive male and female Santas is a free extra.

Viage in the spotlights

The casino will be in the spotlights till 6 January (Thursday to Sunday from 5 pm to 10 pm). On these days beautiful images will be projected on the building’s façade as part of the Brussels event ‘Winter Wonders’. During the 2 km winter walk you can admire the lightshow twice every hour. A fun activity for young and old.

Burlesque show in Wonderland

Wednesday, 28 November 2018 by

How about organising a great night out for your partner, friends or colleagues while the Winter King howls through the streets of Belgium? This is enough to give some would-be party planners the creeps.  And we can’t blame them. A perfunctory drink on a chilly terrace won’t warm the cockles of anyone’s heart. Let alone a boring city hike at 6 degrees below zero. And if your friend has to visit an Escape Room one more time, your relationship status might really be reaching freezing point. Sounds familiar? Aha, then pop in at VIAGE on 1, 7 or 14 December at 20:00. There, we will present you with all the ingredients for an evening you won’t forget any time soon: a superb burlesque show, over-the-top costumes, fully catered meals and unique décor in the enchanting Viage Theatre.

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland: Everyone knows the story! This iconic fairy tale, written by Lewis Carroll, has spoken to the imagination worldwide since 1865. Walt Disney created his own cinematic interpretation of the book, music lovers have appreciated the wondrous spectacle on international stages, and they even presented the piece with primal enthusiasm in circusses. However, we would not be VIAGE if we did not present the extraordinary story of Alice the blonde, The Mad Hatter, Tweedledee and Tweedledum in our own, special way. So let’s turn our amazing theatre space into a true entertainment paradise. We do this under the guidance of the artistic burlesque production by Morganne Viennet and Caroline Venturini‘s beautiful tailored costumes.

What is burlesque?

When the word burlesque is mentioned, one immediately envision dancing soiree-artists, caricature, teasing characters and of course, glamorous outfits that cover just enough. But above all, many forget that a burlesque act presents the public with humour, irony, catchy music and a spectacular event. Crossed legs, knee twisting, exaggerated gestures with the legs, feet, hands and arms. No wonder you as a spectator can barely sit still. And that’s also the intention: etiquette requires you to encourage the performers and cheer loudly at everything they do. Lubricate your throat well with one of our home-made cocktails and let it all out!

Food, drinks & fun

With our burlesque show, we once again prove that VIAGE is much more than just a casino paradise, especially in the festive month of December. Because after rummaging around one of the loveliest Christmas markets in Europe (read: Brussels Winter Wonders), VIAGE is the perfect place to warm up properly with your friends, partner or colleagues. Right in the heart of Brussels. In addition to the entertainment of our burlesque act, we present you with a special three-course menu and various animation performers. Fancy posing on the photo with one of the main characters after the show? Lolly Wish, Miss Glitter Painkiller, les soeurs papilles await you at our photo booth: obviously in their most seductive pose.
