On August 31st the normal programmes for Training (2nd year) and STUDIOS (2nd year) will restart. On this first day of the new academic year 2020-21, Theo Van Rompay, co-founder of P.A.R.T.S. who is retiring soon, will step down as Deputy Director of the school. Charlotte Vandevyver will take up her position as the new deputy director of P.A.R.T.S., to lead the school together with director Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.
But before this date we organize a three day mini-festival: a come together between students, teachers and staff as a transitioning from the lockdown into the new school year. To reflect on what happened, focus on the present, and look into the future.
Next to dance classes in the park, a collective performative score, film screenings and workshops initiated by students we will organize conversation tables to share issues that have become more visible during this crisis: ecology and the relation between humans and the environment, the organization of labour, the Black Lives Matter movement, etc.
The P.A.R.T.S. team wishes you a pleasant, safe and healthy summer holiday and will keep you informed of all the activities in September.
The PARTS offices will be closed from July 11th, to August 16th.
Warm wishes from the PARTS team, stay safe and stay healthy!
