The Kaaitheater arts centre in Brussels was established in 1977. It was originally a biennial international festival. Since 1987 its work has extended over the full theatre season.
The Kaaitheater presents theatre, dance and concerts, with a special emphasis on innovative work. Much attention is devoted to setting up its own productions and coproductions with artists and companies from both home and abroad.
The Kaaitheater presents performances in two places. Larger productions are put on at the Kaaitheater itself (Sainctelettesquare 20, formerly known as the Lunatheater). This theatre is part of a striking modernist building from the thirties. Smaller productions are mounted in the marvellously renovated Kaaistudios (Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Vaakstraat 81), a former geuze brewery. They are also much used for rehearsals. Both buildings are in the Brussels canal zone, a stone's throw from each other and from the city centre.www.kaaitheater.be
Les Brigittines are the City of Brussels Contemporary Arts Center for Movement. Since 1976 the Brigittines has provided choreographers, painters, stage directors and interprets the support to explore or create a unique universe and question the world of today. Both the meeting and confrontation between theater, dance, music and visual arts escapes the classification and give different meaning to the creation of new langauges of expression. Exploration of new creative langauges is the first preoccupation of Les Brigittines.www.brigittines.be
