About Kaaitheater

From its start in 1977, Kaaitheater has been a stage for contemporary performing arts, anchored in Brussels and facing the world. Today, we present dance, theatre, performance and musical theatre, and are a platform for lectures and discussions. A team of 35 committed staff members makes this programme possible.

Kaaitheater is in full motion. Under the slogan 'How to Be Many?', the Kaaitheater team makes space for a broad spectrum of stories, perspectives, artists and audiences, to learn to better reflect the city's polyphony.
