Contact improvisation with Martin Nachbar - an impression
During the past three weeks, the Training students have been divided into three parallel groups, that each had another workshop: composition, improvisation technologies or contact improvisation. These workshops have been taught by Johanne Saunier (composition), Prue Lang (improvisation technologies) and Martin Nachbar (contact improvisation). Throughout the following weeks, they will all get to follow the three given workshops. Nachbar has just finished his first block of workshops with a group, and wrote about his experiences here.

Performing Arts Training 2013-2016
In September 2013 onwards P.A.R.T.S. will re-organize its program structure.
In 1995 the school operated according to a program schedule of three years. In 2000 we changed into a four years program: two years of ‘Training’ and two years of ‘Research’.
From now on we will gradually move towards two totally independent formats. The Training program will consist of three years. The Research program will remain two years.
The one is called ‘Performing Arts Training’, the other ‘Research Studios’. Both names are still working titles.
The Training group will consist of 50 students, the Research group of 12 students.
The first Training-new-style will start in September 2013. The first Research-new-style will follow in 2015.
Here we describe in short what new students can expect from the new Training cycle, now called ‘Performing Arts Training’. Details of the programme will be communicated by January 2013.
If you are interested in studying in PARTS and you want to be updated on all our plans for the new program, please write an email to Eva Vanhole, our responsible for student affairs: email@example.com.
Auditions for the new Training cycle will be organized between January and April 2013.
