Course summary

Summary

This programme is designed for experienced professional choreographers, dancers, performance makers and interdisciplinary artists who want to further 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.

‘Practice as research’ is a growing area for experienced dance artists, choreographers and performers who want to deepen their practice and strengthen their profile. Run by leading artist-scholars, the course supports enquiry through studio practice and research informed by contemporary theoretical concerns. 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.

The Department is home to the internationally-recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression as theatre performance and beyond. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.

Career prospects

This course offers professional development for independent artists and choreographers. Some graduates follow careers in research or teaching, or go onto further academic study such as a practice-led PhD.
