Course Introduction

This choreography and performance programme is designed for experienced professional dance and performance practitioners to understand practice as a form of research. Deepen your choreographic or performance practice through studio-based enquiry and research informed by contemporary theoretical concerns. This programme has a flexible and supportive approach which makes it possible for you to strengthen your professional practices while working towards a higher degree. You will be supported in the development and presentation of a comprehensive choreographic and/or performance portfolio. You will also gain a range of reflective and critical skills including writing and documentation strategies, advanced dramaturgy, and the capacity to understand and articulate your work and interests in broader political, cultural and artistic frameworks. This course offers professional development for independent artists and choreographers. Some graduates follow careers in research, teaching and or go onto further academic study such as a practice-led PhD.
