Teaching at PARTS: Diane Madden

Last week Diane Madden concluded 3 weeks of teaching contemporary technique to the 2nd year students of the Training Cycle. In her class, Diane Madden is building up material and skills towards a longer Trisha Brown repertoire workshop in Spring 2021, in which students will be creating their own version of Brown’s “Son of Gone Fishin’” 1981.

Diane has been giving workshops at PARTS based on Trisha Brown’s repertoire for many years. Since 1980 Diane has been an integral part of Trisha Brown’s work: as a dancer, rehearsal director and Associate Artistic Director.

It is a special honour for PARTS that Diane Madden is associated with the school for the entire Training Cycle, from 2019-2022.

Last year she taught an intensive composition workshop and contemporary technique. At the same time Diane also taught a morning movement practice for STUDIOS students along with the dancers of Rosas.
In addition to teaching assignments, Diane is tutor of the Training students together with Lise Vachon and Manon Santkin.
Diane’s years of experience is an inspiring influence on PARTS daily organization and is invaluable to our students.

Simultaneous to her work with PARTS, Diane is also assisting Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker in various Rosas projects such as Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 and The Dark Red Research project.
