Season 2022-2023

In autumn, KVS looks back at a few modern classics. Some well-ripened, well-known and immensely popular, others that have not had the chance to be seen by enough people due to the pandemic. KVS chooses to call the latter category ‘new classics’.  In the spring of 2023, the KVS ensemble takes us to worlds unknown within its own creations.

  • Venus in Libra

    Jaouad Alloul / Toneelhuis
    Thu 02.02.2023
    Fri 03.02.2023

    For Jaouad Alloul, the provocation for this performance was the moment when a Member of the European Parliament with an anti-LGBT agenda was caught – mid-lockdown – at a sex party for gay men. It uncovered a level of hypocrisy and power abuse that needs to end urgently. Venus in Libra is a manifesto, a dialogue, a radical act of resistance against everything conservative.

    Sun 04.12.2022

    A repertory play could not be more topical: the environmental scandals close to home, the manipulative mechanisms of political decision-making, the struggles of whistle-blowers...

  • Atropa

    A tragedy set to techno and trap. A theatrical bacchanal. Lanoye’s Atropa the way it was meant to be: a linguistic celebration set to music, in honour of contemporary gods.
