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!

No height without lowness. No end without a beginning. In Beyond the Edge, a group of young people move on a life-size installation of ladders. A performance about how we all try to get higher but depend on each other in every position.

Tim Oelbrandt & De Studio
theatre

Let yourself get carried away in an absurd world of magic and the subconscious. Is it real or am I being tricked? You can decide for yourself. Heen en terug promises to be a crazy ride, an evening full of humour and ingenious mind-blowing concoctions.

This magical theatre is nothing like a magic show. Tim Oelbrandt explores the nineteenth century, the Victorian era of hypnosis, fortune telling and spiritism. Heen en terug is a mesmerising séance in which thoughts and assumptions are turned upside down. A psychological trip like no other.

Minami Deutsch is a Krautrock band from Tokyo. These self-described “repetition freaks” cite psychedelic rock and minimal techno as guideposts, but – as evidenced by a band name that is Japanese for “South Germany” – they’re really obsessed with krautrock.
