Birkin/Gainsbourg le Symphonique" was born during the summer of 2016 thanks to the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal and the Francofolies de Montréal. Initially it was just a matter of giving two performances for his former partner to pay tribute to the great Gainsbourg on the 25th anniversary of his death.
These performances were so successful that they ended up touring the world, particularly in Asian countries where Serge Gainsbourg had not had the opportunity to perform in public. Jane performed her greatest hits on exceptional arrangements by Nobuyuki Nakajima (a Japanese musician, composer, arranger and pianist who studied composition in Tokyo and Paris). Noted not only for his masterful piano, but also for his talent as a composer and arranger of elegant and exciting ensembles, based on the impressive depth and variety of his musical knowledge), surrounded by the best symphony orchestras in the world.
Following this resounding success, Jane Birkin wished to continue to offer moments of intense joy to her fans as well as to Gainsbourg fans surrounded by a charming chamber orchestra! Brussels is no exception to this beautiful gift!

Some important things to remember about the Cirque Royal in Brussels.
At the time, it was large and modern, because some 3,500 spectators each had a decent view of the ring from their seats. The orchestra pit above the entrance of the artists and circus animals could accommodate 40 musicians. Under the bleachers were storage areas and boxes for more than 100 (circus) animals, mainly horses. The arena was built in such a way that it could be filled with water, creating a swimming pool. The opening show was performed by the Renz equestrian troupe. The glory days of the beginning of the century, in addition to circus shows, also mention ballets, big events and even the first films.
A new management restored the tradition of horse shows, mainly large ones, from 1920 onwards. But also variety artists (Maurice Chevalier) were programmed.
After the Second World War, the building remained vacant for some time. It was completely renovated in 1953 according to the plans of the architect Charles Van Nueten. Only the foundations and the steel structure are still original. A modernist structure was built above them. It was for a long time the house of Maurice Béjart with his 20th century ballet.
Since the regionalisation of culture, the hall is the property of the City of Brussels. The Cirque Royal tries to target the programming to the Dutch and French-speaking public, despite the fact that it is managed in collaboration with another venue, Botanique, which belongs to the French Community.
In addition to performances by individual artists, singers or music groups, large shows or events continue to enjoy the hall because of its special, almost circular layout. The Cirque du Soleil is a regular visitor.

The cuisine of northern Thailand
How can we talk about culture in Chiang Mai without talking about its cuisine?
The cuisine of northern Thailand, especially in Chiang Mai, is rather sweet because it is the result of centuries of traditional culinary know-how combined with Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences. With a perfect blend of aromatic toppings and a few spicy condiments, Chiang Mai's cuisine, also known as lanna cuisine, is particularly succulent. A beautiful assortment of authentic recipes to discover and taste without moderation!
The particularities of northern Thai cuisine
As everyone knows, Thailand's recipes have a reputation for being spicy. Regular customers will not find any disadvantages, but for the less sensitive taste buds, a Som Tam spiced up with a sauce too strong can harm its tasting if you are not used to it.
Fortunately, not all of Thailand necessarily follows this rule. The North of the country offers a relatively sweet and tasty cuisine by reducing the amount of spice in order to make the taste of the recipe more pronounced. This particularity of northern cuisine would not be possible without the Burmese and Laotians in particular who, over the centuries, have come to influence the culinary field of Chiang Mai and many other regions.
This is all the more obvious if we refer to the way curry is prepared, as well as the omnipresence of sticky rice in almost all recipes. Chinese influence is also very present in the cuisine of northern Thailand, with most of Chiang Mai's most prestigious restaurants serving dishes accompanied by several types of sauces of Chinese origin.
Many cooking schools in Chiang Mai also offer training days in Lanna cooking. The prices are more than affordable: it would be a shame not to take advantage of them if you come on holiday.
Northern cuisine is characterized by the traditional Lana style, which is widespread in the Chiang Mai region. Contrary to what the dishes may suggest, northern cuisine is generally easy to prepare compared to the cuisine of other parts of Thailand. Originally, Lana Thai cuisine was mainly intended for weddings and other important events. Nowadays, it is democratized and everyone can enjoy the delicious lanna recipes anywhere and anytime.
The main ingredients are pork and vegetables, which are part of a variation of authentic recipes characterized by tastes with bitter tendencies, both powerful and complex.
Although traditional straw baskets remain highly prized as containers when serving food, today they are mainly placed on small porcelain plates, while guests sit on floor mats around a wooden table.
