PARTS Graduation Tour 2014
In June, Generation X finishes its education at the Research Cycle in PARTS. As always, they end their last year with the creation of graduation works, for which the school provides three months of studio time and a budgets for production and coaching. After the creation they go on tour and present the work in different theatres and festivals – a final step between education and the professional field.
In 2014, there were two different options: repertoire or personal work. Guided by Sandy Williams and Eleanor Bauer, eleven students created a remake of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's 'The song' from 2009, retitled to 'Another Song'. Eleven others decided to make their own work, two trios, a duet and three solos.
These works form the basic programs of a tour that brings them to different venues in Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Turkey and Poland: 26 performances at 11 different locations. The graduation works have been divided in three basic programs: the repertoire and two evenings with personal work. In some places there are extra evenings with selections of older work.
The basic programs:
Repertoire: Another Song by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, with Manuela Aranguibel Molano, Balázs Busa, András Déri, Erik Eriksson, Taha Ghauri, Kinga Jaczewska, Darko Radosavljev, Jason Respilieux, Krišjānis Sants, Roman Van Houtven and Thomas Vantuycom
