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.

bodies of knowledge (BOK)

By Sarah Vanhee

How can you create a safe space in public space for the exchange of various forms of repressed or underexposed knowledge? How can we challenge the hierarchy of public debates and arrive at a more horizontal, fair and inclusive society? These are the starting points of bodies of knowledge (BOK), an alternative school, that stays in the same spot in the city for a few weeks or months, and then moves on again.

How Large is a Person?


The person is first and foremost an idea, to think of it in terms of a particular embodiment is to be within a tradition that forces the idea of personhood into a particular shape. In the western world, this has been an imagined rational, individual human of a particular class. This way of thinking is neither the only one nor the most fruitful – it hides the different ways of knowing inherent within multiplicity. During this evening, we will explore how human personhood has been constructed, and how it can be decentered and made to expand into different ways of seeing and being.

With Marisol de la Cadena and Isabelle Stengers, Mod. Mihnea Tanasescu
