Building on a long tradition which is anchored in the national and international cultural landscapes, the theatre department of the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles proposes a varied and divers approach to the performing arts, in line with the professional performance world.

Thanks to a variety of methodologies and tools, incorporating texts from the classical repertoire, modern and original writing, together with a reflective approach to teaching, students in the theatre department can develop the technical and artistic skills and knowledge which are necessary for them to become the theatre-makers of the future. 

Performance is the extension of a creative act.
Jacques Lecoq

The learning process encourages students to follow their own path and develop a unique approach to artistic work and multiple aesthetics. Courses in performance and stage skills are supported by training in performance technique (vocal training ; movement for the stage ; physical expression), and by theoretical courses which allow the future artists to situate themselves in relation to the cultural and social contexts of the past, present and future.

The Courants d’airs festival is organized by the Conservatoire in collaboration with the Centre des Arts scéniques. It acts as a real stepping stone towards professional life, allowing students to develop their own innovative shows, and giving space to a new generation of artists.

The theatre faculty of the Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles is made up of artists who are active in the profession, including representatives from a variety of theatres in Brussels and the French-speaking world. Our teachers run workshops abroad (in Europe, in Africa and at international conferences such as META, alongside famoust European theatre schools). In addition to the core faculty who ensure that the training course has proper coherence and continuity, we also regularly invite guest teachers from Belgium and abroad, who are specialists in a variety of disciplines (puppet theatre, dance theatre, acrobatics, cinema...).
