Artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater Michiel Vandevelde is touring four cities with his Precarious Pavilions. In each city, he builds a pavilion with a different artist, each time asking the question: ‘How do we deal with space and architecture in this unstable world?’ For his second pavilion in Brussels, choreographer Michiel Vandevelde and the collective 431 are coming to the Place de la Monnaie.

A day before the municipal elections, a parade of people dressed in white marches through Brussels. They wear white placards with no slogans. American choreographer Anna Halprin created Blank Placard Dance in 1967 as a protest against the Vietnam War. Anne Collod recreates this performance with participants from Brussels.

The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios for the fourth time, to close the RE:RITE season with a final day of rituals. You can join this experimental spiritual urban community for one ritual or for the whole day, to become conscious of your entire being and of everything going on around you. The rituals during this closing event are focused on ‘Buying Time’: how can we redefine our approach to time and our perception of public space.

The Monastery is returning to the Kaaistudios – which has become a familiar environment – for a special, two-day event. This time, A-LIFE combines the celebration of spring with the queerness of practice during an experimental monastic happening for women, men, and those who have left this binary far behind. Expect a monastic day in silence – with the occasional rave – in which you deconstruct and deepen the aesthetics of the monk.

For the second time this season, The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios with A-LIFE, a ritual day that is patterned to the rhythm of the seasons. This time, the urban monks guide you through the transition from autumn to winter.

What happens exactly when we fall asleep? What is it like to be a viewer watching other people fall asleep in a theatre, to witness this most intimate act? The Guardians of Sleep is a collective attempt to withdraw in a world that is always ‘switched on’ – and where an ‘off’ button simply doesn’t seem to exist.

In the whirlwind of work, relationships, deadlines and discussions, we sometimes get distracted from the most important things in life: feeling alive and being conscious of our entire being and everything around you. The Monastery is an experimental spiritual urban community that aims to do exactly that: by performing daily rituals and making every action an intense experience.
