LOD-makers

LOD undertakes to map out long-term trajectories; with LOD-composers Kris Defoort, Daan Janssens, Thomas Smetryns and Frederik Neyrinck as well as LOD-artistes Josse De Pauw, Inne Goris and Steve Salembier. In addition, LOD remains open to those who - always surprisingly, but never by chance - cross our artistic path. Our production company is intended to ben an overarching platform for these artists, and is meant to offer the resources to develop their ideas.

⟩ Young talent

LOD focuses resolutely on what is to come, among other things through our commitment to support young talent. We are working on the future of musical theatre through the European Network of Opera Academies (enoa), which provides quality workshops for young performing artists and opportunities for lasting exchanges between international opera houses. At the end of the summer, we open up our rehearsal spaces to up-and-coming new talent during the Bijloke Summer Academy, in collaboration with our neighbours on the Bijlokesite: KASK & Royal Conservatory School of Arts, International Opera Academy, Muziekcentrum De Bijloke and SPECTRA).
