The programme’s activities are shared between scheduled time and individual and collective self-organized activities. Theoretical and choreographic practices embrace each other and are approached as extensions of one another.
Thematic learning processes include practical/artistic, methodological and theoretical knowledge, research and interdisciplinary meetings with other artistic and scientific fields of knowledge and expression. Each semester, except for the fourth semester that is mainly dedicated to the students’ degree projects, three courses are running parallel to each other. This structure enables to make connections between the courses, as well as between different topics and activities and to explore how they can inform each other. This trans-disciplinary approach allows addressing broad and over-arching questions through specific questions, singularities and details.
The moment of exchange and continuous feedback is central to the program: the programme is conceived and designed by the permanent members of the artistic committee of the Master in Choreography: Frédéric Gies (head of programme), Anna Efraimsson, Sandra Noeth and Anne Juren. Their diverse backgrounds as artists, curators, academics and educators are reflected in both the contents and the formats of the programme, as well as in it structure. All members of the committee accompany the students’ processes in different moments. Apart from the artistic committee, the students regularly meet international guest-teachers and artists in workshops, seminars, lectures, labs, feedback sessions and mentoring.
