Every two years a new generation of dancers and choreographers graduates from the PARTS dance school in Brussels, which was founded and is headed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. One invariably sees these young artists appearing soon afterwards with fresh perspectives on dance and performance. The international tour of their graduation pieces always gives an exciting foretaste of what’s to come.
In spring 2012, nineteen students from eleven countries will be working on their graduation pieces for three months. Details of these works will only be released in May 2012. The programme will consist of ten pieces, each with a different approach to composition, theatricality and movement.
“Behind the Sun” he repeated, “where Everything is Everything else”.
