Open workshop with Rianto - 31/10 - 3/11

PARTS invites professional dancers and dance students to participate in a workshop by Rianto.

A master in the Central Javanese cross gender dance form of Lengger, Rianto has developed a unique vocabulary that embodies both the masculine and feminine.

During the workshop Rianto leads participants through the foundations of classical Javanese technique, the Javanese masked dance traditions and philosophies and his unique approach to fluidity. He embodies fluidity as a practice between genders, classical form, contemporary techniques and village traditions.

The intensely physical training is combined with studies into the relationship between Rianto's religious body, social body, political body and traditional body.

As a contemporary dancer Rianto has worked closely with Choy Ka Fai, Sen Hae Ha, Akiko Kitamura, and most recently Akram Khan, joining the company to take on Akram’s role in Until The Lions. Full bio

This 4-day workshop takes place at PARTS, Avenue Van Volxem 164, 1190 Brussels
The workshop takes 3 hours a day: from 10h until 13h. If there are many candidates, a second block  from 14.30 until 17.30 will be added.
The workshop is open to professional dancers and dancers in a fulltime dance education program.
Participation fee: 130€ for 4 days. Max. 20 participants per workshop. 

To register, please send an email (including your cv) to Jens Buysschaert, jens.buysschaert@parts.be

This workshop takes place in collaboration with Europalia.
