Public forum in the hall of the Academy of Theatre and Dance

The Academy of Theatre and Dance presents HALf6, a public talk show in the central hall with guests from the city, the field, the study programmes and the neighbourhood.

For one hour we open our doors, get together and ask ourselves: What is going on? Who is in town? Who is in the school? Could the Academy of Theatre and Dance be a public place for debate and encounter? And can we connect more closely with each other and with our direct environment?


We have put together a dazzling programme with major guests, a houseband and of course soup and drinks afterwards! The coming monthly editions are scheduled for:

  • 14 March 2017
  • 11 April 2017
  • 9 May 2017

Join us! Be welcome! The meetings are playfully bilingual; entry is free and there is soup and drinks on the go for everybody.
