Kaaistudio's

Kaaistudio's

The Kaaitheater arts centre in Brussels 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. Smaller productions are mounted in the marvellously renovated Studios, a former geuze brewery. They are also much used for rehearsals and the residency programme of workspacebrussels.

Beursschouwburg

Beursschouwburg

Apart from a pile of attractively stacked bricks in the heart of Brussels, the Beursschouwburg is, for the time being, principally an inspiring platform for between-the-arts. Here, artists reflect, show, scrap and start again in an ongoing dialogue with thinking and creative Brusselèèrs. The Beursschouwburg is a melting-pot and a thorn in the side, where art is served while it’s still hot! Beursschouwburg is a loyal presentation partner for our biannual Working Title Situations.
