The Master Programme Choreography has an artistic/practical orientation. Its specific approach lies in the expansion of body knowledge in order to develop movement research from precisely this knowledge, and to assist in developing choreographic productions with methods of composition. Modes of reflective body practice are transferred into dramaturgical-compositional tools and are examined in individual artistic research processes.
The MA degree programme places students in a position to create and present choreographic productions in the field of contemporary dance that hold their own in this context. This includes that students can critically reflect their own practice, develop their own artistic position and communicate their aesthetic approach.
The study course is structered in two phases. The first two semesters are class-intensive, group work oriented and demand constant presence on site. They lay the foundation for the second year of study, in which students work more individually and are supervised accordingly. The developement of own individual artistic projects takes about half of the study course scale (Moduls 6 and 7) the other half is dedicated to classes of the modules 1 - 5.
