P.A.R.T.S., Ictus, Rosas, Brussels
The artistic complex gathers three key Belgian cultural entities: the dance company Rosas, the dance school P.A.R.T.S, or Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (both created by the choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker), and the music ensemble Ictus. All set up at the heart of a 19th century former royal laundry, they will benefit from more creative and storage spaces and improve their working quality. They will also be able to open their studios to the public.
