PARTS@WORK#3, Thursday February 8 - Friday February 9 2024:
Showing of the results of the 5-week theatre workshops followed by the 39 BA Training students.
Under the guidance of Kuno Bakker, Jolente De Keersmaeker & Sarah Haeck, Mokhallad Rasem, Janneke Remmers & Nele Vereecken.

Four groups of students worked with six different theatre makers to create a performance based on the "Ancient Greeks.
What do the classical tragedies, the ancient mythical stories tell us today about violence, about the image of women, about heroism, about faith, about our relationship with nature?
Work was done around such figures as Medea, Cassandra, Tiresias, Poseidon and with texts by Euripides, Kae Tempest, Dennis Kelly and the students themselves, among others.
The result reflects four collective quests, with original, personal, moving and often humorous perspectives.

Each evening you will see 2 groups.
Each group piece is between 45 minutes and 1 hour

PARTS@WORK#2: TUE-WED-THUR 12-13-14 DECEMBER, 2023 - 20h
Showing of Trisha Brown’s Set and Reset/Reset, re-created and interpreted by the 40 Training students.


During a four-week intensive workshop, the students of the 2nd year Bachelor Training program worked with Diane Madden, Kathleen Fisher and Samuel Wentz on ‘Set and Reset/Reset', based on a choreography of Trisha Brown that premièred in 1983 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (New York) which went on to transform dance history.
Training Tutor and teacher Diane Madden was part of the original cast in 1983.

In the TBDC repertory workshop, the dancers learn original movement sequences from Set and Reset and improvise with the material, guided by the same compositional rules devised by Brown and the dancers. Working closely with one another and informed by skills practiced in technique courses, the dancers shape ensemble improvisations into choreography, generating a unique Set and Reset/Reset. Here, as with Brown’s Company, the dancers are an integral part of both the creative process and the end result.

The seductively fluid quality of the movement in this Trisha Brown masterpiece, juxtaposed with the unpredictable geometric style has become the hallmark of Ms. Brown’s work. Performed to a driving score by Laurie Anderson, the exploration of visibility and invisibility is reflected in the translucent costumes and set by Robert Rauschenberg”(© Trisha Brown Dance Company)

Each evening you will see four different versions of Set and Reset/Reset, from 4 casts of 6-7 students per version. In order to see all the students at work, you can combine any two of the evenings.
