You apply to the programme with your artistic practice and a plan for its presentation. Your background can be as a performer – dancer, choreographer or circus artist – or as an artist with another professional relationship to performative practice. The base of the programme is your artistic practice and all courses are related to and studied through that. There may be a certain degree of influence on how the courses are carried out according to the student’s individual plan for presenting her/his artistic practice. The artist's individual practice is the basis for two years of in-depth studies with compulsory courses and optional courses. At the programme you discuss your own practice in relation to others' and formulate you own artistic method for its presentation. In addition, the individual practice is put into relation with theory construction of contemporary aesthetics, and philosophy and theory construction. Several of the programme's courses are offered as freestanding courses which adds to the critical mass for discussion and reflection. To guarantee a top-level education, the programme cooperates with other seats of learning and artistic fora, nationally and internationally.
