kwaad bloed vzw was founded in 2000 by Patrick Sterckx (wp Zimmer), Frederik Verrote (P.A.R.T.S.) and Carine Meulders (Beursschouwburg).
This structure had as a purpose to produce, support and distribute the choreographic work of Ugo Dehaes and Charlotte Vanden Eynde.
In 2005 kwaad bloed vzw was reorganized : the board-members changed to Leen Hammenecker, An Lombaerts and Kim Van den Heuvel.
From then on, kwaad bloed vzw wants to produce and support the work of a wider variety of artists, and will function more as a label.
Ugo Dehaes was appointed as the artistic director.
