The #tapiocatouch project comes into season in Germany and Holland in November. The dance group / performers is formed by Andrea Krohn SP / SP, Priscilla Patta BH / MG Rodrigues and Marsal of PoA / RS will be with workshops, talks, three solos and a spectacle that will occur in different places and dates (see flayer). #tapiocatouch The project was born from a concern about the usefulness of social networks for artistic production collective works with unknown within this time scanned body midiado by the machine and the image people. The first step was to build a field of action which was first a virtual space of trust, in this case the time was a good mediator. Being Brazilian was not a choice was a "chance", and from this point we seek a focus of interest to begin a process of creation. Roots and cultural identity is connected to technology: Tapioca (Guarani, taken from the bottom) and Touch (name given to a form of technology). Emerged between "terabytes" of infinite space with the creation of "gum" of our first form. We found part of us, elsewhere sometimes-crowded and other re-meaning as part of the same world history.12249570696?profile=original

Pilot #1 February – June 2015 

In 2017, PARTS will start the Research Studios, a specific research program independent from its three year Training program. The Research program is intended for young choreographers and dramaturges, who will work in an environment where reflection and studio experimentation, exchange and collaboration with other artists are the basic working formats. 

A full Research cycle will last two years and each one will have a specific research theme. In 2017-2018, the topic will be the different relations between dance and music. 

In 2015-2016, there will be a pilot phase in which the new approaches and the research topic dance – music will be tested. Four blocks of four months (17 weeks) will each have a singular perspective: a specific artist or approach to the question dance vs. music. For the first block we stay close to our own experiences at PARTS/Rosas, as we will focus on the practice of our director/choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. In the three following blocks we will research totally different experiences, methods and practices. 

It is possible to register for only the first block (pilot #1) or only for the three following blocks (pilot #2). And of course both pilots can be combined. 

In pilot #1 (February 16 - June 12, 2014), the compositional concepts and tools of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker/Rosas will be studied critically under the headings ‘understanding’, ‘handling’ and ‘positioning’, through theory and music lectures and seminars, studio sessions and personal creative tasks. They will be used as tools for experimentation that feeds the creative practice of the participants, and for reflection about the use of the past for future creativity. Auditions for pilot #1 will take place in November, deadline for application is October 17. 

A second project pilot #2 (three blocks of 4 months from August 2015 onwards) will focus on many other possible relations between dance and music. It will feature workshops, masterclasses and seminars with different artists and thinkers, and a strong thread of studio experimentation to develop new ideas and practices relating choreography to music. 

Auditions for pilot #2 will take place in Spring 2015. Details about the program will be published in December 2014. 

The Research Studios are coordinated by Steven De Belder, Alain Franco and Gabriel Schenker. 

For each pilot project, we offer 12 positions. 

Focus is on persons with a strong choreographic interest and 2 or 3 theoreticians who prepare for a career as a dramaturge or a dance critic. 

- MA in dance/choreography or MA in dance/performance studies, OR similar professional experience 
- good basic musical knowledge 
- minimum age 23, maximum age 35 
- very good skills in speaking and writing in English 

Pilot #1 will run between February 16 and June 12, 2015, a full-time program of 17 weeks. 
The tuition fee amounts to 4.000€. Scholarships are available. 
The first selection is by dossier, to be submitted before October 17 2014. 
The final selection round will be an audition in Brussels, November 21-24.

Hi all,

if you're around I would love to meet you there...

Tel Aviv Museum of Art

October 25th


exhibition, dance performance and lecture.

more info below.


The series Kontrapunkt brings together dance and visual art in events that link exhibitions at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art with contemporary dance pieces. The events comprise a tour of the exhibition, a dance show and a discussion between curators and artists about expression, interpretation and artistic conventions.
Series curator: Lior Avizoor

Kontrapunkt # 3:

At the borders of the Known: the Uncanny

Iris Erez presents three strangers in an undefined, constantly changing space. Helpless, they seek ways to deal with an indefinite threat.

Michaël Borremans places in his works mysterious figures in ambiguous states. His images are revealed to the viewer with a disturbing chord, exposing absurd and melancholic situations.

Both artists sketch a terrifying sense of tension, an alienness experienced within the familiar. This is the human experience that exists between the known and the obscure, which Freud termed the "uncanny" (Unheimlich).

Evening program:

19:30 – "As Sweet as it Gets", exhibition by Michaël Borremans

20:30 – "Homesick", dance performance by Iris Erez

21:00 – "Home as a philosophical concept", lecture by Professor Hagi Kenaan
