Courants d'airs Festival

18th edition - 13 > 17 March 2024

The Festival Courants d'Airs was created in 2005 by the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles for educational purposes. It gives students the opportunity to develop their own creative projects before the end of their studies, without the help of their teachers, and to meet the public. Since its inception, Courants d'Airs has attracted a growing number of spectators each year, thanks to the diversity of practices and aesthetics it offers, making the Festival Courants d'Airs not only a showcase for new productions - especially for the growing number of Belgian and international professionals - but also a privileged space for young Belgian artists and a free event open to all. 
The Courants d'airs 2024 festival
Courants d'Airs 2024 will present 22 projects for a total of 27 performances over 5 days.
These original proposals will be put forward by nearly a hundred students from the Royal Conservatoires of Brussels and Mons. These young artists will be meeting audiences on the stages of the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, as well as in the capital's emblematic venues such as the Museum of Musical Instruments (MIM), the Hall of Mirrors of the Brussels Parliament, and the clubs The Music Village and L' Archiduc.
The festival will feature theatre, music, opera and performance.
The festival is maintaining its free admission policy, and unless otherwise stated, access to the shows is unreserved.
This year's edition is special in that it will take place almost a month earlier than in previous years, due to the school holidays being brought forward. This makes it an "in-house" edition,
concentrated on students at the Conservatoire. Bringing forward the school holidays has also
reduced the amount of time students had to work on their projects, forcing them to present
quality shows in record time.
