April at Kaaitheater - update

To help contain the spread of the new coronavirus, Kaaitheater has cancelled all performances until 3 May.





The spread of the COVID-19 virus is hard to ignore. As Kaaitheater we want to take our responsibility, so we cancel all performances until 3 May. The well-being of the audience, artists and staff is our priority. In the meantime, the team continues to work and hold meetings from home: a fascinating experiment in remote proximity.

In April, all performances and lectures are cancelled.

Our extensive reads & videos-archive could keep you busy for hours. Take a look at the video recordings of debates and the artists interviews! We will be posting a lot of articles and videos on our social media channels in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on them too: that way we'll still be somewhat together.

About Kaaitheater

Kaaitheater is a stage for dance, theatre, performance, music and debate in Brussels, set in a dynamic part of the city in full development. Founded in 1977 as a pioneer of innovative performing arts, this house has grown into a platform for both work by artists of the Flemish Wave and new generations of performing artists. From Brussels to international, from small to large venues, and just as well in the squares and the streets, where urban and global themes are tangible.

Over the coming years the team from Kaaitheater will, under the motto How to Be Many?, make room for a broad spectrum of stories, perspectives, artists and audiences, so we can learn to better reflect the city's many voices. This is why we are handing over some of our own resources to organisations and groups that are still not visible enough on the Brussels stages, with the invitation to make their own artistic programmes and thus make their voices louder.

Furthermore, we are charting new paths around debate, education and participation, opening the way to co-ownership by artists, Brussels residents and many audiences. 

Along the canal that connects our two locations Kaaitheater and the Kaaistudios, the activities of Kaai move with the times, stimulate social and artistic debates and embrace the diverse performing arts of today. Welcome!
