September 2017 marked the 150th anniversary of Leuven’s wonderful Schouwburg theatre. The celebrations enabled many people to (re)discover the magic and grandeur of this building. It has been a popular meeting place for spectators, artists and employees for over a century and a half.
We gladly share this beautiful building with everyone. At each show, you can enjoy the bijou theatre, the magnificent lobby and the permanent exhibition in the grand staircase hall.
Every now and then, the building is put in the spotlight as well. That’s why we open its doors to everyone on several Sundays. You can take the guided tour behind the scenes, do a dance or enjoy a drink in the lobby.
Dance themes of fall 2019:
- Oct 6, afro-beat, in collaboration with BURn
- Nov 3, salsa and bachata, in collaboration with Leuven Salsa
- Dec 1, tango, in collaboration with Leuven Salsa
