Public talks with Jonathan Burrows and Arco Renz

On two occasions, you can come and listen to two choreographers who are teaching at PARTS, talking about their work in general.
Every year, more than 50 artists come to teach in PARTS to share and pass on a part of their knowledge and practice. We invite some of them to shed light on the bigger picture of their life and work.

Monday November 13, 19h: Jonathan Burrows in conversation with Bojana Cvejic
British choreographer Jonathan Burrows was a soloist at the Royal Ballet before pursuing his own choreographic work. Since more than a decade his focus has been on a series of duets with composer Matteo Fargion, which have gained international recognition and which have all been presented in Brussels over the years. Burrows has been a guest teacher at PARTS since 1999.
The conversation will include a reading of the talk 'Politics' which was first presented at the Inventur #2 conference in Düsseldorf, and reach out to other topics.

Tuesday November 14n 19h, Arco Renz in conversation with Christophe Wavelet
