Content Warnings

At Kaaitheater, we are driven by the desire to support and showcase contemporary art on stage. This means that the work we present sometimes challenges or disrupts the conventions and norms of society and theatre. We firmly believe that content warnings are an essential tool in this respect to enable as diverse an audience as possible to attend our programme.

By using content warnings in our programme, we aim to create an environment that is accessible and welcoming to as many as possible, while nurturing contemporary artistic practices that can sometimes be subversive or challenging.

However, because we also do not wish to impose these warnings on people who prefer to receive less information about the performances they want to attend, you can read them on the online programme pages only if you wish to. We hope this solution can benefit everyone. 

RAMADANFRIENDLY

In 2023 several theaters in Brussels aimed at finding ways to show respect to and facilitate the visit of the large community of people in Brussels observing the Islamic holy month. We experimented with a “Ramadan friendly”-label.  

In 2024 our accessibility policy has broadened, taking into account as many different needs as possible. As a basic rule, we offer free water to our audience before and after the show, we allow them to drink and/or eat something if desired, and – where possible – we also provide a quiet space for rest.

Accessibility

HTBM in the city

ROOTED IN OUR 'HOW TO BE MANY?' PHILOSOPHY,  WE WANT TO TAKE THE NEEDS OF OUR AUDIENCE INTO ACCOUNT AS MUCH AS WE CAN 

We try, as much as we can, to make our spaces and performances as accessible as possible. As this is an ongoing process, we collaborate with the Brussels-based collective Constant vzw in the project A cane, sticky notes, another body. Through this process, we try to give pay attention to all aspects of accessibility, both physical and mental and individually and collectively.  

Below is an overview of what we have done so far. If you have any specific requests, suggestions or other comments, please contact Lars Michiels at tickets@kaaitheater.be

People with reduced mobility

If you would like to attend a performance, send an email, ideally a week in advance, to Lars Michiels at tickets@kaaitheater.be. For performances at one of our partners, it is best to contact the respective venue.

Our building was once a brewery and was not designed with the aim of having a public function. We have designed the best possible processes within the infrastructure to make it accessible for people with mobile disabilities. Steps and staircases from the street level are avoided by using the venue's loading and unloading dock (i.e. the large garage gate with the large seasonal poster). The corridor runs parallel to the reception area and is outside the public area and takes visitors directly into the Theatre Hall. This private area also houses the platform lift that can take people with mobile disabilities directly to the central lift. From here, the toilets (-1), the foyer/Concert Studio (1), the Dance Studio (2) and the Penthouse (4) are within easy reach. 

The entrance for Kaaitheater (not De Kriekelaar) and access to the theatre itself is on the ground floor. Please note that this requires using the threshold ramp by the reception and then going down a slight slope in the garden (open air). You need a certain dexterity to do this and in autumn and winter, the slope might be slippery.

Surtitles

Kaaitheater is a performing arts house subsidised by the Flemish community. If the performance contains texts that are not in Dutch, we try to provide subtitles or translation on paper. We do not provide a translation for some (international) performances with reasonably easy English.  All the information about language and subtitles can be found on the page of the performances themselves. 

Food and Drinks

If you feel the need (for whatever reason), you can always bring a bite to eat and drink during the performance. Please bear in mind that we do not want a popcorn feast and we like our floors clean and tidy, so please act respectfully. We do not allow glasses, plates and cutlery inside the venue. We offer free water in the Kaaistudios and De Kriekelaar before and after our performances.
