Theatre, dance, performance, cinema and visual arts: the Kunstenfestivaldesarts is a festival of contemporary creation. It takes place every year in the month of May, in theatres and arts centres and in public and original spaces in Brussels. It includes work by Belgian artists, as well as others from around the world.
For this year’s edition, Kunstenfestivaldesarts is consciously locating its beating heart in the canal zone of Brussels, more precisely in Rue de Manchester in Molenbeek. More than just a temporary space, the centre seeks to empower existing initiatives based there. A fully operational Recyclart is the core of the festival centre, reopening together with the festival after its eviction from the Kapellekerk station and a difficult year. During the festival, Recyclart will be a place to meet and share food, with parties every Friday and Saturday. La Raffinerie / Charleroi danse, Cinemaximiliaan and Decoratelier are partners of this centre in Rue de Manchester, hosting projects and becoming central elements of the Free School for ten days and during the festival’s opening and closing nights.
