Re-run 'Un Sacre du Printemps' – Daniel Linehan and former PARTS-students

In the Fall of 2013, choreographer Daniel Linehan and dramaturge Alain Franco made a piece for 14 Reserach Cycle students at PARTS, offering a new reading of Igor Stravinsky’s centennial score Le Sacre du Printemps. They also collaborated with conductor Vincenzo Casale and the TWIS Youth Orchestra (Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles), for two presentations at the Rosas Performance Space.

In 2015, Daniel Linehan picks this piece up again in a professional context, with the original cast (who graduated in June 2014) as the first production of his new company Hiatus. The piece opens at deSingel in Antwerp on February 13, in collaboration with Vincenzo Casale and musicians from TWIS and the Conservatory of Antwerp. In Summer, it will be presented again in Lille and Marseille, this time with the two-piano version of the score, played by Alain Franco and Jean-Luc Plouvier.

Re:Zeitung on tour in 2014-2015

In 2013 PARTS created RE:Zeitung, an adaptation of the Rosas creation Zeitung of 2009, together with six dancers who had then just graduated. After a successful tour in the season of 2013-2014, they will bring the creation RE:Zeitung also in the 2014-2015 season on different places, both national and international. In this season a slightly modified cast will bring the reworked version of the repertory piece: Mohamed Toukabri (generation 9) will be replaced by the recently graduated Jason Respilieux (generation 10).

PARTS Graduation Tour - in retrospection

The students of the Research Cycle traditionally close their education with a tour of their graduation works. They show their work in professional theaters and at festivals, thus handing out the business card with which they enter the professional world.

The tour of generation 10 consisted of 3 programs: 2 programs with own creations (solo, duo and trio) and a program with the repertory work 'Another Song'. On some places older work of the students and another repertory work 'A Love Supreme' was added to the program.

The students showed their work in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Louvain, Ostend, Amsterdam, Essen, Poznan and Istanbul - in total 32 different shows for a very diverse public, in theaters but also on a square in Poznan, on the beach in Ostend or in a concrete amphitheater in a park in Istanbul.

PARTS thanks all the organizers for their enthusiasm and their confidence in the work of these still unknown, young artists.


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:

Auditions for the new Training cycle will be organized between January and April 2013.
