Crude Saturdays – Open platform for performance

Crude Saturdays at Tictac Art Centre

Open platform for spontaneous performance.


On the first and third Saturday of each month (mostly), Tictac’s big studio gets transformed into an open stage, welcoming artists of the performance arts (dance, circus, music, theater, etc.) to show their work. The performance evening is approx 1 hour long.
We livestream every Crude Saturday through our Facebook page, so you can follow it online all around the world (18:00 Brussels time).

Anyone is welcome to participate as a spectator, and/or a performer.

Tictac main doors open at 17:00 for the general audience, and the performances start at 18:00.
The outside doors get locked when the performances start, so the audience has to be ON TIME. After the performances, Tictac stays open for approximately one more hour.
Take the opportunity to have a snack, a beer or a cafecito, talk and to mingle with the performing artists or to visit the current artist in residency in Tictac’s Gallery.
Keep in touch with Tictac’s social media or newsletter to know exactly which dates we have Crude Saturdays.
