The Bronks children’s and youth theatre in Brussels aims to bring these age groups into contact with a wide range of performing arts. The theatre building consists of a tangle of spaces, corridors and staircases that cross and meet each other in various ways. This is despite the fact that underlying it is a clear and ingenious architectural purpose.
One striking example is the rehearsal room, which is raised above street level. This is extremely practical because daylight is able to enter and it is possible to look down into the reception area, which is below ground level and whose generous proportions enable it to be used for additional programmes. It is striking that this theatre building constantly stimulates experimental use without excluding the possibility of a traditional set-up.
