On Performatik17

From March 24 to April 1, Performatik17 will be entering the intriguing twilight zone where artists tinker with the codes of visual arts and performing arts. For this fifth edition of Performatik, Kaaitheater is joining forces with 13 partners across Brussels, ranging from renowned venues to small scale artists' organisations, specialising in either live arts, the visual arts or both. They all contribute their own expertise.

Performatik17 presents works by more than 40 artists on 20 locations throughout the city: black boxes, white cubes and the streets of Brussels.

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!
