Throwback to the 3rd X-week at PARTS with Labolobo
An intensive one-week workshop of artistic practice for the first year Training students
During an X-Week, the normal operation modus of the school is suspended. Invited artists can work a whole week with the students, in or outside school. We ask the artists to unveil their way of approaching art towards the students. For April's artistic practice, PARTS invited partner organizations Labolobo, Platform K and the artist Mario Barrantes Espinoza.
In the spotlight: the group working with Labolobo.
During the X-week with Labolobo, the Bachelor Training students became part of DANCEDANCEDANCE, an intergenerational project that brings ‘dance’ to Brussels’ retirement homes. Dance and movement are used as a medium to create interpersonal connection, across generations, and to give meaning.
“Above all, DANCEDANCEDANCE is a celebration of the body in all its forms, young and old “ (Labolobo).
For this edition, the Training students engaged in dialogue with elderly from Residence Bellevue Forest and the neighborhood, choreographically guided by Giulia Sugranyes, Anabel Schellekens, Taka Shamoto and Noémi Garel .
Inhouse photographer Tine Declerck captured the beautiful exchanges that emerged between the dancers and the elderly, “an inclusive, poetic dialogue full of emotion” (Labolobo).
DANCEDANCEDANCE, a project of Labolobo, started in 2021 and will run until 2025, with the collaboration of PARTS, Danscentrum Jette and KlaraFestival.
