The Embassy has been offered up to 40 free tickets for its staff and members of ABIE and the Australia Society to attend the Lucy Guerin dance company’s performance of its work Motion Picture in Bruges at 8pm Wednesday 1st February.
FYI the small Melbourne-based dance company creates and tours new dance works which explore everyday events and refine dance. Motion Picture is described as “a choreography which examines the tension between live performance and cinema. The dancers face the big screen behind the audience and use the film images as a source of inspiration for their movements.”
For more info about the performance in Bruges (in Dutch) please visit
Information about the dance company can be found at:…
Time: 20:00 Wed 1st February

Public transport to the event
Getting to the BBQ by public transport from Brussels is easy - Tram 39 (destination Ban Eik) from Montgomery leaves every 20 minutes on a Sunday. Catch it to stop Beek-Ruisseau (Beek in Flemish, Ruisseau in French). The trip takes about 20 mins. Walk down the path in the same direction as the tram. At the bottom, turn right on to Beekstraat. Follow to number 172.

Payment is made by bank transfer.
