season 2021-2022

With a little help from my friends!

A loose alliance of different makers under one roof: this has been the credo of Toneelhuis under artistic director Guy Cassiers for 15 years. And now for the last time in the coming season, as Guy Cassiers will be stepping down at the end of June 2022. That’s why we want to have one last blast, in a real festive year with no less than 11 premieres, ending with a big collective project by and with all of the makers and staff at Toneelhuis. 

Discover all of the premieres, reprisals, coproductions and guest performances for the coming season here. We are extremely proud of it all!


With a FRIENDS of TONEELHUIS pass (€15) you have a 25% reduction on every performance (except for concerts and the Antwerpse Kleppers festival).
