For and together with school groups (from higher, secondary and primary schools) and their teachers, the festival offers a number of special trajectories and a school programme. In addition, schools and students can attend the festival thanks to the school rates and an advantageous Festiyouth pass.
Contact Anne Watthee on 02 226 45 73 or by e-mail.
If you attend a regular (evening) performance with your class, you benefit from a school rate.

Tailor made programme
We would love to create a tailor-made programme for your students, together with you. The trajectory within the festival can include different formats (within and outside of school hours), depending on the specific interests and possibilities of your group: a presentation of the programme, an introduction, a guided tour of a specific building, a look behind the scenes, a meet and greet with the artists,… We would love to come by to discuss and develop a tailor made programme together.
Bonobo – Tú amarás
The Chilean company Bonobo also presents the play Tú amarás during school hours. We opt for this contemporary theater performance because it has the potential to stimulate the active citizenship of pupils of the 5th and 6th secondary school classes. In Tú amarás (literally: "you will love") we follow a group of anthropologists who are preparing a conference on the issue of racism against a (fictitious) minority group, "the Amenites". Bonobo maps the complex problems of racism, daily discrimination and solidarity in a very nuanced way.
We provide an introduction in the classroom and an active workshop on the day of the performance, tailored to your class group.

The Class – 2nd generation
As students from the first generation of The Class are presenting the conclusion of their project with Anna Rispoli (see: Close Encounters), a second generation is being established. For three years, students who are currently in the fourth grade of secondary school at the Institut Sainte-Marie and the Atheneum Brussel become acquainted with one another while immersing themselves in the world of contemporary art. Year after year, their collaboration will become more intense and will conclude with an artistic project during the 2021 festival. This year they attend the school performance Tú amarás.
