About the Company

BRONKS is a Brussels-based art house with an emphasis on theater for a young audience. The artistic guidance is in the hands of Veerle Kerckhoven and Marij De Nys. BRONKS aims with its artistic and art education activities to stimulate children, youth, and their environment to discover and explore the possibilities in ourselves and in the world. Each season, BRONKS invites several artists to make a production for children or youth. This work results in three in-house productions per year, presented not only in the BRONKS theater, but also on tour. A new theater text is written for many BRONKS creations. By offering both starting theater makers and established names and artists from other disciplines the opportunity to create their first performance for children, BRONKS aims to generate enthusiasm for the performing arts for a young audience. In addition to its own work, BRONKS also presents guest productions from beginning and experienced companies and makers from Flanders, the Netherlands, and sometimes from other countries. Moreover, BRONKS focuses not only on theater, but also on music, dance, the visual arts, and film. BRONKS has developed extensive educational activities for schools as well as for children and youth who wish to pursue the performing arts in their free time. Students and teachers can come to BRONKS for school performances, introductions, post-performance discussions, workshops, and long-term theater projects. Via STUDIO BRONKS, the company organizes workshops outside school hours, in which children and youth can actively explore the theater medium.
