In the run up to SLOW#03: KIN <> BRU on the 24th and 25th of November, Slameke and KVS organise an Open Mic at Kuumba, where we will unite the artists from SLOW#03 as well as everyone who feels like sharing a text or listening!
The KVS is the Brussels City Theatre.
Our unique position in the capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe is the alpha and omega of our operations. The KVS aims to reinterpret the repertoire in relation to the city that is more than ever the whole world. The KVS embraces the city and its plurality and intends to amplify its artistic voice in the arts field.
Rise Up Youth is an interactive slam poetry project with the British-Jamaican poetess and performer Sukina Douglas (Poetic Pilgrimage). She is bringing together young people from KA Etterbeek and youth club Chicago to focus on sensitive issues relating to diversity, social justice, taboos and stereotypes. The result will be on display in May at BOZAR.
Peeping Tom is working at the KVS on its Vader, Moeder and Kinderen trilogy, with their characteristically tender and sardonic view.
When I was younger, I wanted to change the world. I literally wanted to change the world, and I felt that music was my tool, my ammunition and my opportunity to create and instigate change.
Met Sukina Douglas voegt KVS een internationaal gezicht toe aan het open ensemble van het Brussels stadstheater. Als dichteres, rapper en performer reisde ze al de halve wereld rond, en overal inspireert ze mensen met de kracht van haar woorden.
One is an idealist with a big heart, the other is honest, resolute and full of integrity. These fresh forty-somethings acquired their passion for theatre through avant-garde playwrights like Peter Brook and Marie-Bernard Koltès. is season they are both very present in the KVS programme.
This Thursday, 7 September, we are throwing open the doors of the BOL for a party and a good deal of conviviality!
On 11 July, while Flanders parties, Brussels Dances!
The TOERNEE GENERAL label has become a classic: a common selection by the KVS and the Théâtre National, a fine, varied range of what both theatres have on offer in the upcoming season.

It is already ten years since one of the leading, if not the single most important, post-war Belgian authors, died. On 19 March 2008, Hugo Claus, who had long suffered from Alzheimer's disease, opted for euthanasia. Precisely ten years after his death, we pay tribute with two productions.
