This evening we went to the KAAI Theatre to watch P.A.R.T.S. New Works. P.A.R.T.S. is a dance school founded and headed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. After two years of training the pupils get a chance to put on a show – and what a show! The first work we saw was by a Finnish choreographer, Veli Lehtovaara, and was entitled Paper plane – propositions, tautologies, contradictions and reprises. For forty-five minutes three dancers, a Swede, a Finn and a Portugese lady, held our attention with a mixture of gymnastic geometry, wit and grace. In the second half we saw three works culminating in Daniel Linehan’s Montage for Three, in which two dancers immitate a stream of photographs of the famous and the obscure, mimicking their poses and expressions. Gradually, the dancers replace the images and start to change the poses we had previously seen. It was a very clever and witty work. Once again we headed home thinking how lucky we were to live in such a city and in such a country.
