Vingt-deux étudiants de quatorze pays différents achèvent leurs quatre années de formation à PARTS, l’école bruxelloise de danse contemporaine que dirige Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, par plusieurs programmes.

Un groupe d’étudiants a travaillé trois mois durant à une création inspirée de la production The Song (2009) d’Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, une pièce pour onze danseurs inspirée du White Album des Beatles.


The Song was created in 2009 by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Ann Veronica Janssens and Michel François for a group of 10 dancers and one foley artist. A stage stripped to its bare elements light, sound and movement gives life to new possibilities: a playful solo in which the body seeks out its own weightlessness or a group choreography like a flock of birds in full flight, the constantly shifting patterns at the same time a sample of mathematical precision and human inventiveness. It’s a piece accompanied mostly by silence, punctuated by bursts of ‘The White Album’ by The Beatles.  

This new version was directed by Sandy Williams and Eleanor Bauer who were in the original version of the piece, for 11 dancers. They revisit the piece, often replacing the original movement material with the participants’, while maintaining the existing structure so as to allow the dancers to speak their own clear language within the existing work.
