Course code
Included in study programme
Master’s in choreography

Brief course description

The Master’s Project is a specialised work that focuses on the development of an independent choreographic project by applying and integrating insight from the programme’s other courses. The students will plan, explore, develop, realise, share and reflect on artistic problems of their own choosing and are expected to be able to demonstrate artistic autonomy, maturity and reflection in their choreographic solutions and choices. In the Master Project, seminars will illuminate challenges related to choreographic exploration and the drafting of a project description with relevant methodological and artistic problems. During the second year, the seminars will illuminate challenges related to realising, documenting and reflecting on the Master Project.

Each student will receive individual supervision throughout the process.

The course’s varying focus each semester is followed up by a series of intensive and topical seminars in order to ensure academic progression.

The course is structured as follows:

Semester 1 (year 1):

  • mapping: choreographic experiments and testing of problems and interests

Semester 2 (year 1):
