AUDITION PROCESS
The audition is divided in two steps:

1) A pre-selection takes place via a written application. To apply, candidates send in a digital dossier containing the following elements:
- a motivation letter
- a cv- 2 reference letters
- a weblink to max. 10’ of video material of work that you have created or co-created on youtube or vimeo. This can be a compilation or a single piece/extract.
- a text of max. 1 page to introduce and contextualise the video material

The application should be sent by email to Steven De Belder (steven.debelder@parts.be), before April 15, 2019.


2) Selected candidates will be invited for the audition which will take place in PARTS from June 5 until 9, 2019.
The final audition consists of the following elements:
- a warm-up class and a longer dance and improvisation class;
- a 10’ performative presentation called ‘walk+talk’, in which the candidate presents their work and their research interests;
- a 25’ individual talk with the jury;
- a task to create a 3’ solo. The concrete parameters for the task will be given on the first day of the audition, and during the audition period there will be studio space to create the work;
- the task to give a short feedback on the solo presented by another candidate;
- a group talk, guided by a moderator and observed by the jury;
- for non-native speakers: an English test;
- writing a 2-page essay. This happens before the audition itself, details about the topic will be sent to the candidates one week beforehand.
