Kunstenfestivaldesarts is an international arts festival dedicated to contemporary theatre, performance and dance. It occasionally also opens itself to film and visual arts. It is the live character of these disciplines that brings them all together. The festival explores hybrid and unconventional forms, and always addresses these fundamental questions: what can live on stage mean today? Who is represented? And who’s watching, who’s experiencing this live moment?
Kunstenfestivaldesarts takes place every year in May and lasts three weeks. It shows works in more than thirthy different cultural centres as well as in public spaces. The festival is nomadic; collaboration with many diverse partners is essential and the result of a continuous dialogue.
