The arts centre opened in 2001 in the renovated Arenberg building of the university
in the centre of Leuven. STUK is now a small city in the city, a collection of spaces
and places that each enter into an alliance with a single purpose (film, music, theatre)
but which allow for change over time.
The complex comprises some ten halls and rooms; a theatre hall, a dance rehearsal room,
a lab room, a cinema, an outdoor theatre ...
The Soete hall with its 221 seats is the largest hall in this arts centre. It is a flat-floor auditorium
with fixed transverse lighting bridges. Between the bridges, mobile hoists are suspended.
