Kaaitheater is a stage for dance, theatre, performance, music and debate, rooted in Brussels but with our sights set on the world. Since 1977, we have presented and co-produced work by contemporary performing artists. From the eighties until the present, from local to international, from repertoire to experiment and from small to large venues: Kaaitheater fosters long-term commitment to the artists on its stages.

In the conviction that art is important to man’s well-being, we make a point of relating to society. In Brussels’ canal district, where we see all the world’s issues in a nutshell, artists imagine and model the city of the future.

Social and ecological topics are a prominent element in the Kaaitheater programme. We regularly invite thinkers to reflect upon these issues, present and co-produce works by artists who relate to climate change and the social and ecological crisis in their themes and practices.

Nebula

Vania Vaneau

In Nebula, the stage appears like a burnt black landscape, both natural and futuristic, where everything has been destroyed except for a few bits and pieces: precious stones, coal, water, clay, mirrors… In dialogue with these materials, the dancer quivers with the energies around her, reinventing herself as a tree, a tiger, and a star. Entering unknown universes to reveal what exists beyond the black hole, the solo Nebula opens up even vaster spaces with new forms of life where time is expanded.

TINK TANK / ONE

By Enkidu Khaled & Joachim Robrecht

The impact and disastrous consequences of war remain a painful and often underexposed topic in the debate on global warming. Access to raw materials is often the root cause of conflict and ecological warfare, such as the draining of rivers, is increasingly used as an instrument of violence. Military exercises and operations waste enormous amounts of energy and leave behind hallucinatory amounts of debris. It is both cynical and ironic, but some exercise areas and war zones are so polluted that no one is allowed to enter them. They are instead declared nature zones where nature is given free rein and can heal.

PREY

KRIS VERDONCK / A TWO DOGS COMPANY, ANNELIES VAN PARYS & ICTUS

How can we rethink being human from a radical ecological perspective? What stories can help us grapple with the disruptions of the climate crises? These questions lie at the basis of PREY, consisting of three solos by three generations of women. All three offer a different perspective on the same theme, via a different medium – text/speech, song/music or dance/performance. Be prepared to delve into a scenography in which humans do not play the main role. Can we find consolation in the horrific fact that we are food and that we belong to an ecological cycle of life and death?
