»G#$*&!/Disagreement?/How to dance things with doing« or a collective work that leads to move things in order to do. Collective doing leads to disagreement. Active disagreement makes room for things to happen. Several matters of disagreement require variety in its practice. Let’s deal with things one after the other. The discussion is a bit disruptive so one can call it a succession of discussions. Oooooohhh is an option.
Listing things is helpful too:
Lists can be presented this way as well: collage, fiction, another fiction, words in mouths.
Néstor Garcia Diaz, Siet Raeymakers, Michiel Vandevelde and Cyriaque Villemaux made it. This is one form of community but Néstor Garcia Diaz, Siet Raeymakers, Michiel Vandevelde and Cyriaque Villemaux who got feedback from Bojana Cvejic and Christophe Wavelet will hopefully show others.
The piece allows for a way of thinking that has value by connections and agreements between different forms of expressing.
This year’s program by the P.A.R.T.S. graduates demonstrates that Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s school produces promising choreographers. The first evening examines the social codification of bodies and movement’s potential for meaning. The second program focuses on the relationship between language or text and movement.
Néstor García Diaz was born in 1985. After studying at the Conservatory of Contemporary Dance in Valencia, he moved to Barcelona to pursue theater studies at the Institut del Teatre. In 2007, while still studying theater, he began to perform for choreographers like Sol Picó and Jeremy Wade and moved to Brussels to join P.A.R.T.S. He created some pieces that have been presented at international festivals. He also took part in projects with choreographers/theoreticians like Jonathan Burrows, Thierry De Mey, Bojana Cvejic, Christophe Wavelet, Xavier Le Roy, Mårten Spånberg and Tino Sehgal.
Siet Raeymaekers (born 1989) lives and works in Brussels, currently finishing her studies at P.A.R.T.S. She performed her solos – one about a bizarre trash talking woman obsessed by dead things, one about the various physical stages that occur after death – at Naked State Gallery, Recyclart, Atelier Borborygme, Beursschouwburg, OrNothing Gallery and Bronks in Brussels. Besides creating her own work she has also been in the work of others. She’s been performing live visuals for the acoustic electronic band Different Fountains in different venues in Paris and Brussels. She also co-founded Different Fools, a collaboration with music artists.
Michiel Vandevelde (born in 1990) started dancing in the youth theatre and dance company fABULEUS in Leuven. Very soon he began to create and develop his own work, often together with others. His work includes small actions in public space, performances, and building structures. The performances – a.o. »Tentproject (a space for ideas)«, a project based on the search for alternative political and social systems – were shown at Entrepot (Brugge) and Beursschouwburg (Brussels). Together with Jozef Wouters and Menno Vandevelde, Michiel forms the collective mennomichieljozef vzw.
Cyriaque Villemaux (born in 1988) started his dance education at the young age of four and at age 15 entered the Conservatoire National de Région de Tours in the ballet department. Two years later he graduated the audition at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse de Paris and joined the contemporary dance formation. In 2008 he joined P.A.R.T.S. During his studies, Cyriaque created several performances presented in a few venues. He had the opportunity to follow workshops with Jonathan Burrows, Xavier Le Roy, Mårten Spånberg, Tino Seghal and Christophe Wavelet.
