Globe Aroma is an Open Arts Centre that hosts dozens of artists/newcomers who come to create, rehearse and meet one another every day. Kaaitheater co-produces an annual platform in which a professional artist joins a diverse group of participants in a common art project. We also support Globe Aroma with its financial administration.


Every year, Het TheaterFestival kick-starts the new season with a selection of the most surprising and interesting productions from the last season. The festival alternates between Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent. Its structural partners are Kaaitheater, DE SINGEL, and viernulvier. The 2023 edition will take place from 7 to 17/09 in Brussels.


workspacebrussels is a workspace for the performing arts in its most hybrid forms. Young and upcoming talents find support with intensive residency periods, co-productions, and coaching. Kaaitheater provides various kinds of support: rehearsal space, office space, administrative support and co-presentations.


For a long time, Kaaitheater has collaborated closely with VUB and some of its departments. This autumn we close a new cycle of A Series of More-Than-Human Encounters. Our main partner for this series is VUB/Crosstalks, a transdisciplinary and intersectoral platform for knowledge exchange between academia and society through lectures, debates, residen-cies, exhibitions and networking activities.


The international house of literature Passa Porta is a unique, multilingual meeting place in the heart of Brussels for anyone and everyone curious about ideas, texts and stories. In the past, Kaaitheater and Passa Porta regularly hosted author conversations together. With The Wonders of Multilingualism, we have been organizing a series of encounters together since 2022, that shed light on the human, cultural and political complexity of multilingualism.



Kaaitheater seeks partner to develop business plan related to events & operation of new building.

Kaaitheater is a house for dance, theater, performance and conversation in Brussels. Founded in 1977 as a pioneer of innovative performing arts, we have grown into a platform for both artists of the Flemish Wave and new generations of Belgian and international performing artists.

Currently, our beloved building on Sainctelettesquare is undergoing renovation and new construction. We hope to open in 2026 - with a second auditorium, a city balcony and spaces for artists and audience groups.

In the meantime, we continue to program at Kaaistudios, and collaborate with many theaters and partners in and around Brussels, with whom we present a diverse program.

In order to increase our own income and thus further expand our artistic operation, Kaaitheater will make its infrastructure available for venue hire, events and other formats yet to be developed.

We are looking for a freelance entrepreneurial and out of the box thinking partner to help shape this part into a solid business plan.

About Kaaitheater

Kaaitheater is a house for dance, theatre, performance and conversations – firmly anchored in Brussels.

Founded in 1977 as a pioneering institution for the living arts, we grow into a platform for both artists from the ‘Flemish Wave’ as well as new generations of Belgian and international choreographers and performers.

Driven by the question How To Be Many?  Kaaitheater explores new strategies for participation and mediation, in order to guide new audiences into the multifaceted contemporary living arts. These make room for a broad spectrum of visitors, artists, stories and perspectives, and cross many neighbourhoods and locations in and around Brussels.

Between 2022 and 2025 our cherished building at Sainctelettesquare is being renovated from the bottom up. In 2025 we’ll move back into our headquarters, with ample of new space. A second room, a city balcony and spaces for artists and public will resonate with the new urban artpool around the canal.

Until then you can find us at de Kriekelaar in Schaerbeek, where we have our temporary office and also programme smaller events. Of course we keep presenting at Kaaistudios; the rest of our programme you can find at the many theatres and partners in and around Brussels, with whom we collaborate the coming years.

How to be many?

Under the motto How to Be Many? we make space for a broad spectrum of visitors, artists, stories and perspectives, so we can learn to better reflect the city's many voices.  

How to be Many on Earth? How to meet in Many languages? How to be Many in the future? How to love in Many ways? How to connect across generations? How to be Many in the City? 

These are questions that run like a thread through our programming and try to point out what is a stake. 



Be My Guest brengt elf internationale partners samen die aandacht hebben voor vernieuwende kunstvormen en bekend staan om hun betrokkenheid bij kunstenaars. Be My Guest vertrekt van samenwerking, vertrouwen en vrijheid van uitwisseling, zoekt naar flexibele manieren om in te spelen op de behoeften en trajecten van kunstenaars, en investeert op lange termijn in hun werk. Be My Guest biedt ook ruimte voor reflectie over de eigen beroepspraktijk en zoekt aansluiting bij actuele maatschappelijke vraagstukken.

Art, Climate, Transition

The hope I am interested in is about broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act.’ – REBECCA SOLNIT

ACT is een Europees samenwerkingsproject rond kunst, ecologie, klimaatcrisis en sociale transitie. In dit tijdperk van klimaatverandering, massale uitsterving en groeiende ongelijkheid bundelen we onze krachten voor een hoopvol project: we verbinden brede perspectieven met specifieke, lokale contexten, die uitnodigen of vragen om te handelen: ACT.
ACT verenigt 10 Europese cultuurhuizen uit de beeldende en podiumkunsten en ontvangt steun van het Creative Europe Programma van de EU voor een periode van vier jaar (2019-2023).
