This programme is designed for experienced professional choreographers, dancers, performance makers and interdisciplinary artists who wish to deepen their choreographic or performance practice through studio-based enquiry and research.
This programme has a flexible and supportive approach which makes it possible for you to strengthen your professional practices while working towards a higher degree.
‘Practice as research’ is a growing area for experienced dance artists, choreographers and performers who want to deepen their practice and strengthen their profile. Run by leading artist-scholars, the course supports enquiry through studio practice and research informed by contemporary theoretical concerns.
You will be supported in the development and presentation of a comprehensive choreographic and/or performance portfolio, which allows you to practice, think, reflect, articulate and present your ideas and independent research.
You will also gain a range of reflective and critical skills including writing and documentation strategies, advanced dramaturgy, and the capacity to understand your work and interests in broader political, cultural and artistic frameworks.
