Dear teachers and principals,

De Studio puts a young audience of 0 to 30 years in touch with art, culture and media. We pay special attention to the urban and social context and to the vulnerable position of young people and artists. We are an open house, giving space to young people to tell their stories. Here, super-diverse theatre companies, makers, actors, curators and artists turn their daring dreams into extraordinary actions.

Please find below the school programme for season 2022-2023.

Once again, we have a wide range of cultural activities to offer: cutting-edge theatre productions, old time classics, dance, concerts, young controversial work, performance, parties and film. We are delighted that the Flemish subsidy provider rewarded the efforts of De Studio with an extremely good report, so that we can assure you and your pupils of high-quality activities.

A new generation of artists is nestling among the well-known talent and is eager to send its work into the world: house companies Laika and FroeFroe send out their new makers with Aminata Demba (Bazar) and Dries De Win (Kleine Epos), house artist Maxime Dreesen celebrates queerness in society (Countersex Education) and Tim Oelbrandt breaks through internationally with his magical Spirals.

Vulnerability, fragility and resilience, who carries who in society, how do we escape daily reality or bend it into a new reality, how do we make the 'right' choices within the multitude of stimuli: all these are themes or threads that you will find in our offer after a period in which children and young people were often confronted with uncertainty.

We warmly welcome all of you!
See you soon in De Studio!

Vervloet & De Studio
theatre, family

A quest that alternates between reality and fantasy. Peter Pan on speed for 12+ and up.

What do you want to be when you grow up? A fire fighter? A football player? An accountant? Mum or dad? A magician? An influencer? Or a pilot still? Anything is possible on the playground. Children let their imagination run wild and determine the rules of the game themselves. 'You are the pink Power Ranger and I am the blue-grey-white one. They don't exist, do they? Well, now they do.'

SOLO deals with the search for your own identity. Using the superpowers of the playground, the main character discovers who he wants to be. A conductor? Or perhaps a DJ? A breakdancer? Or maybe a businessman? A doctor or a patient - or both?

Hyperfantasy*
Robbert Vervloet stays true to the patchwork style of Terminator Too (think cardboard racing cars, a Batman suit made out of cereal boxes and Decathlon dinosaurs) and pulls you into his hyperfantastic world, in which a character tries to get a grip on who he is - or at least thinks he should be. In all his childlike fantasy, things sometimes fail grandly, but even the impossible is within reach.

*It's a thing. Just Google it.

SKaGeN & De Studio
theatre

Rediscover this Flemish theatre literature gem and take a look at Flanders today. Where people still have to work, integrate and assimilate. Where classes and communities still don't speak each other's language. Where families are torn apart and young and old, rich and poor, face each other with drawn knives over land and religion. Where economic migration is still a necessity. And oppression by the 1% leads to heated struggle: Het gezin Van Paemel in an ever-changing world, then - 1903 - and now.

Over the last 12 years, Valentijn Dhaenens travelled the world for SKaGeN with the success monologues DegrotemonD, DeKleineOorlog and Onbezongen. In DeKleineOorlog Dhaenens duplicates himself on screens and goes into dialogue with his 7 alter egos.

In Het gezin Van Paemel, Dhaenens takes this a step further. In each of the four companies, he plays a different crucial character live. The many antagonists, also played by Dhaenens himself, are digitally present.

For those who still had doubts, Het gezin Van Paemel is not a monologue, but a testimony of creativity and bravado. Throughout this production, Dhaenens battles demons from all of our pasts. He has an intense conversation with his heritage, which is also the heritage of Flanders.

A first musical film experience for toddlers and preschoolers

Insects amaze us. Even the very first filmmakers were fascinated by the overwhelming grandeur of these small creatures. Under every square meter we find hundreds of itchy critters. Sweet, dirty, tiny, fascinating. We think we know them. Yet they continue to surprise us: Snails protesting against global warming by crawling away in their ‘home’ for up to three years. Elks who are so sensitive that they notice when a fly sits on their antlers. The tongues of flies are situated on their feet, but they can’t hear us. Crickets are caught for beautiful chirping contests but in group they transform into all-consuming killing colonies.

Cinema De Spiegel hints at the roots of cinema: from Lumière to the first artists' film experiments and scientific film material. In the treasure troves of film archives and museums, Cinema De Spiegel discovered old film clips in which insects play the leading role. The images are projected in different ways and on different screens. Plastic art objects, inspired by the wonderful world of insects, enrich the performance. A harpist and a violinist provide live musical and theatrical accompaniment. Cinema De Spiegel is there to surprise you with an astonishing multimedia ciné-concert.
