Artists who have established a professional practice, and seek possibilities for further reflection and development, in one word ‘diffraction,’ can increase their research skills at DAS Choreography (previously Amsterdam Master of Choreography). This two-year non-residential master’s programme of the Amsterdam University of the Arts aims to contribute to the field of critical and contemporary dance practice. The individual artistic practice is the point of departure and will be the guiding thread of the course design.
The programme contains 3 seminars each year, residencies in Amsterdam, and individual mentoring, which allows for developing an intensive and sustained dialogue in relation to an ongoing artistic practice. This dialogue is supported through strong investment on high quality feedback, peer exchange, sharing reading, writing and practices. The programme offers a place to slow down the chaos, to allow for being overwhelmed and to not know. It gives time for insisting on one thing and is a place for creating conditions for developing artistic practices.
DAS Choreography is part of DAS Graduate School, established in 2016 by the Amsterdam University of the Arts, to bring its masters, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Choreography, DAS Research, and DAS Theater (application deadline 17 November 2016) form together the DAS Graduate School. The school finds its home in a newly renovated building, the heart of which has been transformed into an open & welcoming locale for gatherings and meetings between the arts, science, education and society.
