The Master Programme in Choreography comprises two years of advanced studies. It is practice based and research preparatory, and qualifies the student for a Master of Fine Arts.

The structure of the programme resembles a choreographic score that facilitates the correspondences and interferences between different artistic and non-artistic practices and their potential for reformulation. The MA in Choreography creates a milieu for learning, research and creation processes, as well as for the development of choreographic practices. Negotiating and analysing different notions of the body and of movement, it focuses on problem-posing and emphasizes the links between choreography and social, ethical and political movements. It takes interest in the complex dynamics between arts, civil society and the public, and critically addresses the question of agency in relation to choreography. Here, the question of participation is crucial to the programme, including the reflection on the own involvement and responsibility in choreographic and societal processes, as well as in the productional and organizational dimensions of choreography. The programme operates internationally, but also emphasizes the importance of local relations and implementation.

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.

Teachers in the programme (2014-2016): Sandra Noeth, Anna Efraimsson, Anne Juren, Frédéric Gies, Mette Edvardsen, Paz Rojo, Siegmar Zacharias, Litó Walkey, Maria Jerez, André Lepecki, Josefine Wikström, Philipp Gehmacher, Robert Steijn, Victoria Perez Royo, Michael Klien, Antonia Baehr, Carla Bottiglieri, Anna Grip, Kerstin Schroth, Dalija Acín Thelander, Marie Fahlin, Scott deLahunta, Yusuf Etiman, Deborah Hay.
