Students discover the repertory of William Forsythe.

In May our student will dive into the artistic modalities of the William Forsythe repertory. They will discover this iconic piece of German dance history while working on their own version of SIDER (2011). Fabrice Mazliah, Roberta Mosca and Cyril Baldy, three ex-forsythe dancers will guide them through different artistic aspects and working methods.

This workshop is made possible with the support of Goethe-Institut.


Summer Studios 2017

Rosas and P.A.R.T.S. make their studios available to young choreographers between July 10 and August 25.

All those who are working professionally in contemporary dance can apply to use the dance studios. Send us a dossier about the work you intend to do. It can be a research period for the preparation of a new project. It can be part of the rehearsal period for an established production. It can also be a project created specially for the Summer Studios. For us it is essential only that a creative process is taking place within our walls.

The Summer Studios offer professional dance studios (sprung floor, mirrors, sound installation, TV and DVD-player).
If you'd like to take part in P.A.R.T.S. Summerschool you have the option to combine this with evening rehearsal time in the Summer Studios. More info about the Summerschool here.

PARTS 20 years - 50 portraits

In celebration of the twentieth anniversary of P.A.R.T.S., the book “20 years – 50 portraits” was created. In this book the school looks back, portraying fifty former students, who each narrate their unique story about what dance means to them and the role of P.A.R.T.S. in their life. The portraits are preceded by an interview with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. One hundred images of the school conclude the book, together with an overview of all the students, teachers and collaborators, who have over the past twenty years contributed to the making of P.A.R.T.S.
