In Spain a ‘cantina’ is a bar near the railway station where you can have a quick snack and something to drink, comment on the news and slag off your boss. In Italy a ‘cantina’ is a cold room below ground level where you allow your wine to age, a store cupboard full of jars of pickled gherkins, preserved tomatoes and candied lemon. Here in Belgium the word ‘kantine’ conjures up a picture of a cheerless, canteen-like space with long tables where people eat communally. In Mexico a cantina has an atmosphere all of its own: plastic chairs, colourful walls and faded parasols. It’s where men get drunk, have lively discussions and end up in a fight if necessary.

Finding free inspiration on Bertolt Brecht iconic play “Saint Joan of the Stockyards”, Laika’s Cantina is all of those things and more than a show. It’s a pop-up place where people share dreams, swear, laugh and eat. Cantina is an experience that makes you want to take up arms together to defend a common ideal, find affinities with other people, keep something for later, like a tin can full of caress dreams and hopes for the future. It’s a place where different worlds are conjured up, where dream and reality merge and the most fantastic characters appear and disappear. A place where you are sent into raptures by actors and singers. And, last but not least, a place where you are served delicious food and being together is celebrated. Join us at the table and let yourself be amazed!
