A tongue-in-cheek pop opera about a girl called Nele. It's a rags-to-morerags story of a magnificent failure in love, life, and a so-called pop career.

Running from: Wed 18 - Sat 21 Jul.

A Belgian popstar moves to London to steal the job of British popstars. Luckily, austerity is there to stop her. The Popstar is a girl called Nele who turns her life into a big international mess because she wants to be famous on the other side of the English Channel.

Nele Needs A Holiday is a dramatic songwriter based in Brussels and London – for as long as it lasts. After releasing two albums, she decided to write a musical theatre show about the unfortunate encounters she has with her own ambition.
