Twenty-two students from 14 countries are coming to the end of their four-year course at PARTS, the Brussels dance school headed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. A group of eleven students has opted for its own artistic project. In the course of three months they have been working on 2 trios, 1 duet and 3 solos.
In Student repertoire, the students draw on a wealth of personal work created earlier. This includes revivals of A Love Supreme by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Salva Sanchis, and The Funerals, a creation by Andros Zins-Browne and Tom Pauwels.
So there we are! The dance phenomenon Eleanor Bauer has completed eight BAUER HOURS, but now she has a taste for it and is giving an extra show. In this season's very final episode, her guest is all-round artist Christophe Meierhans.
The videos and writings of Els Dietvorst explore themes such as social conflict and survival in the margins. Art-Coeur-Merci is a film installation about a young Cameroonian man trying to survive in Brussels, with the addition of a performance by Angélique Wilkie. They make us reflect on the essential things in life.
To celebrate the centenary of the Sacre du Printemps we commissioned Gaëtan Bulourde to write a new version of this impressive work. He created a ‘poor’ but humorous version. A collage of music, text and dance which is similar to the cubist character of Stravinsky’s work.
