STUK is an Arts Centre based in the dynamic university town Leuven. STUK has a strong tradition in presenting contemporary dance and got international acclaim with the festival Klapstuk. Over the last 10 years, STUK presented more multidisciplinary and hybrid work, but kept a strong focus on dance.
Since 2015 STUK transformed into a House for Dance, Image and Sound. Our balanced program combines international reference work and exciting new forms. Our audience is just as diverse: next to students and adults, we now also reach children and youths with a Young Audience Program.
The presentation of artistic work in an inspiring context is key: artists develop and create new work, people take part in courses and workshops and we reflect upon art and the world together with our audience. STUK looks for a delicate balance between canon, innovation and contextual framework that can appeal to dance experts as well as broader young audiences.More →
