Tweeëntwintig studenten uit 14 landen beëindigen hun vierjarige opleiding aan PARTS, de Brusselse dansschool o.l.v. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. De studenten ronden hun opleiding af met verschillende programma’s.

Een groep van elf studenten werkte gedurende drie maanden aan een creatie op basis van Anne Teresa De Keersmaekers The Song (2009), een stuk voor elf dansers op basis van The White Album van The 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.
