The Master’s Degree Programme in Dance Performance is comprised of two years of full-time studies. They develop the student’s skills as a performer, as an independent and reflective artist and his/her preparedness to function in diverse and variable contexts of dance art.
The core of the studies is versatile research in the practices of a performer in the frameworks of dance art and other similar art forms. They constitute of dancer’s theme studies and artistic projects, contextual studies giving background to contemporary performance and dancer’s work, individual studies, and a thesis. A student will be more prepared to understand his/her performer’s art and he/she will contemplate its possible exposure. The student will also be able to deepen his/her understanding of art, formulated by this job, and the special questions of his/her own art form, when writing the thesis, which is part of the final work.
During the studies, the student develops both as a solo performer and as an active member of an artistic team who reflects on artistic questions from the position of the performer. The studies support their development as an artist and performer with a personal voice in relation to the changing society and its changing views of art and humanity.
The residential MA Programme in Dance Performance is open to international students and is tuition free for EU / EEA students. The intake to the MA programme is biannual. The next application period is in January 2019.
