7 episodes

A three-year journey into the lives of five students at PARTS, the renowned school for contemporary dance in Brussels. Through interviews and voicenotes recorded on their mobile phones, we follow Kia from New Zealand, Zoé from France, Marllon from Brazil, Renátó from Hungary and Eleni from Greece. Each episode covers a semester at PARTS, from September 2019 until their graduation in the Summer of 2022. Generation XIII is as much about dance as it is about the thrill and challenges of starting a new life, of learning and working hard, of homesickness, coming to grips with cultural differences, seizing life, forging friendships and having fun.

    Episode 2. Who would have thought that we couldn’t touch anymore?

    Episode 2. Who would have thought that we couldn’t touch anymore?

    Halfway into the first school year at PARTS, the creation of a solo and the first intense theatre workshop push the students into new territories. The Coronavirus then hits Brussels and forces the school to close its doors. Just when friendships have started to take root, the group is forced to scatter. Some students return to their families in different parts of the world, while others have no choice but to stay in Brussels. How to dance when others have to be kept at a distance? How to move in a bedroom of 8m2? How to learn through a 13” screen and with all your peers far away?
