H.E. Mr. Rogelio Granguillhome Morfín, Ambassador of Mexico and Chief of the Mission of Mexico to the European Union said it was a great honour to participate at the Viva Frida Kahlo – Immersive Experience. VIAGE is therefore particularly proud of this first production, in collaboration with promoter MB Presents, which brings the VIAGE Digital Art Theatre to life.
Frida Kahlo, who according to the ambassador, is without doubt the most recognized Mexican and Latin American painter in the world, produced 150 works during her lifetime, mainly self-portraits. As the only Brussels exhibition, all these are shown here, interwoven with her biography. The immersive experience gives Frida's works a renewed dynamism. Millions of pixels in constant motion, interacting directly with the viewer, allow you to see, hear and feel the colors and the life of this great Mexican artist.
This exhibition, undoubtedly one of the most important major cultural events of the year, shows and strengthens the bonds of friendship between Mexico and Belgium. – H.E. Mr Rogelio Granguillhome Morfín
Such an experience demands more. That is why VIAGE has developed two unique all-in-one formulas that also pamper your taste and smell.
Viva la Vida VIP immersive
Let’s start with the Viva la Vida VIP immersive package. This gives you a private box in the Theatre for 40 minutes. While you enjoy the projections, you will be pampered with culinary delights. This package – bookable for groups of at least 10 and maximum 25 people – includes two drinks per person and a buffet. You can choose between two delicious cocktails, Sangría de Piña a la Plancha and Margarita de Sandía, or a beer served Mexican style with ice, lime and salt. The buffet includes nachos, pico de gallo with sour cream and spinach quesadillas with guacamole dip. There is no age restriction with this formula. Those over 21 will receive a casino membership card and €5 credit to use freely at VIAGE's tables or slot machines. Per person you pay €49.50 for this exclusive experience.
Frida con amigos
If you want to make your visit to Viva Frida Kahlo – Immersive Experience a complete night out, choose the Frida con Amigos casino-package for €59.50. On top of having access to the Viva Frida Immersive expo & VR-experience, you get a delicious dinner in the VIAGE Grill restaurant and a membership card of the casino with €10 credit to use freely at the tables or slot machines. The order in which you enjoy the different experiences is entirely up to you. Enjoy the menu that you can taste alone or with 20 people while you sink into the soft leather sofas of the VIAGE Grill restaurant. As a starter you get shrimp ceviche and spinach quesadillas with guacamole dip. Next, you feast on a trio of tortillas (pork/chicken/black beans) with corn. You finish with the original Mexican tres leches cake. The three-course dinner is topped off with a fresh Desperados beer.
