Want to work at KVS?
KVS is the Brussels city theatre, a crossroads of many ways and worlds. A stage for theatre, dance and music, for challenging classics and groundbreaking new voices. KVS embraces the city in its plurality and wants to resonate far outside of Brussels as an intercultural, intergenerational and gender-diverse city theatre.
Are you fascinated by theatre and the city, and want to contribute your talents to this cause? We might have a place for you on one of our four floors at KVS.
In our theatre, various departments work together closely. You might be able to help us out with any of these: administration, production, tech, communications, housekeeping, dramaturgy, infrastructure, set and costumes, audience outreach, front of house, security, or the café.
We asked around and these are the responses of our coworkers.
'We work hard, but we laugh even harder!' (Hélène)
'It’s very inspiring when you can go watch a performance or a try-out, and it reminds you of what you’re working for.' (Gudrun)
'My desk is my favourite place in this building. I feel warmly surrounded by colleagues, and here I’m best placed to fend for our artists’ interests, which I do with all my heart.' (Isabelle)
'I like working here because of the freedom and independence we get. We get a lot of opportunity to grow at work.' (Veerle)
'Having the option to grab a coffee at the bar or have a nice meal during your break, that’s a big advantage of working here.' (Monique)
'Working towards a premiere makes for a really motivating atmosphere, and once the premiere finally comes, you can simply sit back and enjoy.' (Heidi)
'Working in a majestic building like this is class. I feel like a king every time I walk through the foyer.' (Kevin)
'I like travelling with productions, but from a technical standpoint BOL is really top notch, so it’s always great to come home.
Four o’clock beers are my favourite part of the day though!' (Dimi)
'The atmosphere is the best – everyone is a little bit crazy.' (Jean)
'As a starter I was immediately made to feel at home. The atmosphere is great and people are open, they involve you in projects straight away.' (Yasmine)
Would you like to intern at the theatre? Every season we are on the lookout for interns to support our services (and not just with coffee – promise).
Come help us out, gain work experience and take in the atmosphere.
You’re always welcome to work for us under an internship agreement. Send an email with your CV and motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to mention what department you’d like to work at and why.
What is the best thing about your internship?
Quinten (communications): "The easy-going atmosphere makes KVS an ideal place to learn. As an intern, you are included in nearly everything, and your voice actually counts. And of course, the coffee is great!"
Lotte (dramaturgy): "You are really thrown in at the deep end – albeit with someone experienced glancing over your shoulder. KVS is a lovely place to experience the theatre sector and Brussels."
How does the internship complement your degree?
Lotte: "You mostly learn by being on the job. You get to have a real look into a world you usually only hear about in class."
Quinten: "You also get a chance to see a lot of productions at various stages of their creation – an artistic angle you sometimes miss in academic contexts."
