Courants d'airs Festival

17e edition - 19 > 23 April 2023

17 years of festival...

Launched in 2005 at the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles, the "Courants d’airs" festival is an occasion to open up the conservatoire so students can share their work and also gain performance experience. It gives them a chance to develop their own original projects before they finish studying, and present these to the public. Since 2010, the festival has partnered with the Centre des Arts Scéniques, an organisation which supports young actors from different Arts Colleges of the Federation Wallonia-Brussels as they transition into professional life. Since its creation, Courants d'airs has attracted more and more spectators each year, thanks to the diversity of practices and the plurality of aesthetics it offers: the programme now includes theatre, music (classical, historical, world, contemporary and jazz music), visual arts and street arts. Thus, the Courants d'airs Festival, beyond its role of revealing shows - particularly to Belgian and foreign professionals, who are becoming more numerous every year - is also a privileged space for young Belgian artistic creation. And a free event, accessible to all the audiences.

Courants d’airs 2023

The 17th edition will present 32 projects. These original proposals will be put forward by nearly 300 students from the conservatories of Brussels (Brussels), Mons (Arts2), Liège, the IAD, INSAS and ARBA-ESA. These young artists will meet the public on the stages of the Conservatory, as well as in emblematic places of Brussels such as the Museum of Musical Instruments (MIM), the Gothic room of the Town Hall, the Hall of Mirrors of the Brussels Parliament, the club The Music Village, and the Place de la Vieille Halle aux Blés. The culturel centre Espace Magh, next to the Conservatory, will enrich the programme of this edition with its Mediterranean aura. On stage: theatre, music, opera, circus, visual arts, performance and street art. The festival will remain free and accessible without reservation.

Please be patient, the programme will be online very soon...
