Costume Workshops

Hat Stock

Workshops, 5th floor

More than 2000 hats are stored in this storeroom! From Roman helmets to hard hats, it is bursting with headgear of all shapes and colours.

Pierre Stubbe

After the shows, the costumes are either stored by production (hats and adornments are thus stored with the rest of the costume) or “relegated”, in which case the reusable elements are sorted and categorised before being stored in their storeroom.

A new life awaits the accessories that will be reused for other spectacles or used during rehearsals.

Pieter Claes

The many wooden shapes used as moulds when making the hats are also stored in the storeroom.
