A venue for a young audience and a hub for young talent.

Podium

De Studio is a creative hub based at the Mechelseplein in the heart of Antwerp. At De Studio, children and young adults are spectators as well as artists/creators.

In 2011, the Province of Antwerp bought the building that used to house the famous drama and acting school Studio Herman Teirlinck. The arts organization Villanella acquired the long lease of the building. It was renamed De Studio and in addition to that new name, Villanella also gave it a new focus: theatre, cinema, music, literature, dance, parties, debates,… De Studio is a unique venue where every lover of performing arts feels at home.

Today, De Studio provides space and support to, among others, Theater FroeFroe, Laika, De Spiegel, fABULEUS, ZEBARBAR, Compagnie Barbarie and Theater Artemis. Artists turn their dreams into reality at De Studio, in order to blow the audience’s mind. 24/7.

One can never know what tomorrow brings, but as long as it innovates and surprises, what tomorrow brings deserves its place at De Studio.

We hope to see you soon at a theatre matinée by day or at a funky party in the middle of the night!

Imagine this: you are walking on a beach, you are completely alone, content to be by yourself,
it’s close to noon, the sun shines bright even though it’s February,
you descended the cliff to read, a dip in the ocean would be too cold,
you walk along the cliffs to the spot where you always lay down and heck: on your path, right in front of you, lays a dolphin.
The head half rotted away, but the creature is still clearly a dolphin.
What would you do? Because suddenly you are no longer alone on that beach.

Vervloet & De Studio

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.'

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.
