Exchange Application to the Master's Programme in Performing Arts

Welcome to apply for an exchange semester at the Department of Performing Arts!

Courses offered

The Master’s programme in Performing Arts is aimed at artists and practitioners who want to develop their creative practice, explore new directions as well as engage more deeply with ideas, reflection, and practice-based research. As an exchange student you will follow the curriculum of the third term of the second year of the programme. The education is primarliy theoretical, and introduces you to various positions on knowledge, theory, reflection and artistic research. We ask how we understand knowledge and analysis within an artistic context and we look at the ways in which the processes of performance-making enable artists to contribute with new knowledge into a field.
