fABULEUS

fABULEUS is a theatre for young audiences and a production house for young talent. It creates theatre, dance, performance and circus productions that people of all different ages can get excited about. What sets fABULEUS apart from other initiatives? The people on stage: in its youth productions, these are young people between the ages of 13 and 21 who come from all over Flanders and Brussels to audition; in the children’s productions, they are professional actors and dancers who are making their debuts.

Central to the activities of fABULEUS is the exchange and collaboration between its (very) young talent and (more) experienced creators. Some speak the language of movement, acrobatics or dance, while others use words and texts to share their relatable stories and challenging themes with a wider audience. The ease with which young audiences identify with the young performers is one of the great strengths of the shows. Many professional makers previously performed with fABULEUS as teenagers. Among those who took their first artistic steps on the fABULEUS stage are Rashif El Kaoui, Hanna Mampuys, Sofie Palmers, Katrien Valckenaers, Piet Van Dycke, Michiel Vandevelde, Mitch Van Landeghem, Maxime Waladi and Sofie Joan Wouters.

fABULEUS, with its HQ at OPEK in Leuven, is one of three theatre companies with structural support from the city and is an organisation-in-residence at Kunstencentrum STUK. Offering a range of school, family and evening performances, the company is welcomed with open arms at festivals, cultural centres and arts centres in Belgium and abroad.

In the 2023–2024 season, fABULEUS is reprising Wezen (‘Being’), Human Instruction Manual and De Kwetsbaren (‘The Vulnerable’). This season will also see the premieres of I love (and hate) you, Iran (27 September 2023 at de Warande, Turnhout), Ultra (8–11 November 2023 at STUK, Leuven), RAARHAAR (‘SCARY HAIR’, 20–25 January 2024 at OPEK, Leuven) and Beyond The Edge (23 February 2024 at de Velinx, Tongeren).

In the 2024–2025 season, I love (and hate) you, Iran, RAARHAAR, Ultra and Beyond The Edge will all return and we will see the premieres of Remember My Name (6 November 2024 at OPEK, Leuven) and out of hands (23 April 2025 at STUK, Leuven).
