Cultural activities are an important part of VIAGE's entertainment offer. It is not without reason that the sixth floor contains a unique space: an events hall. Currently 'Viva Frida Kahlo Immersive Experience' is running in the VIAGE Digital Art Theatre. This magical place has made countless people happy over the years. But as always, we strive for more.
Various art forms passed through our theatre. We had unique performances by many national and international artists. Think of Prince, Paul Anka, The Gibson Brothers, Kool & The Gang,… The legendary Musical Dinnershow entertained countless guests. During the sensational show 'The Great Gatsby', the audience played along with the play between the actors, or was it the other way round? This immersive experience is once again in evidence in the current exhibition about the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
As usual in the cultural sector, the doors closed at 18:00. Why? Our other activities continue as usual. Shows and performances do not even start before that fixed closing time. We want everyone who comes to visit us to be able to enjoy our cultural offering, regardless of the hour. That's why the exhibition Viva Frida Kahlo stays open until midnight during the summer, 7 days a week! At VIAGE you experience culture at 'your' moment, when it suits you best. More than ever, VIAGE is a synonym for 'culture club'.
After all, the World Health Organisation officially confirmed it a few years ago: the active or passive experience of art promotes health and general well-being.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. ― Pablo Picasso
Studies show that art affects both mental and physical health in different ways. Yes, this also applies to looking at art. People who visit museums and go to exhibitions have better emotional regulation. Enjoying beauty is beneficial for your mental health. This is because you build in moments of rest in your brain while enjoying. By doing so, you stimulate another part of your brain that helps you to manage emotions better, make better decisions, have less tendency to violence, and so on.
So, what are you waiting for? At the end of your day, pop into VIAGE and relax at 'Viva Frida Kahlo Immersive Experience' in the VIAGE Digital Art Theatre. Book your tickets here.
