Master’s in choreography

Brief course description

The Master Project course 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 shall 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.

The course is structured as follows:

Semester 3 (year 2):

  • specialisation: testing out specific choreographic elements and strategies

Semester 4 (year 2):

  • realisation: staging and showing of the artistic project
  • reflection: documentation, reflection and public presentation of the project

The second year of the course concludes with a presentation of an independent choreographic project, which has to be documented and subject for a reflection on the process and the outcome, and a public presentation of the project as a whole.

The course’s learning outcomes are described as follows:

Teaching and learning methods

The coursework will consist of independent work, supervision and teacher-led learning. The working methods consists primarily of project work, seminars, peer review and feedback from fellow students and educators, supervision, written assignments and independent study.

Each student shall have a supervisor from the first to the fourth semester, and additionally in the third and fourth semester (the second year) also a co-supervisor related to the realisation and presentation of the Master Project. The first supervisor must be a member of the Academy staff. Students are themselves responsible for their own progression in the Master Project; this entails meeting the given coursework requirements, and being in regular contact and keeping appointments with their supervisor so that artistic progression is maintained.

Any changes to the project description from the first year shall be approved by the Head of the programme.

The coursework requirements must be approved in order for students to receive the final assessment of the Master Project course.

The artistic part of the Master Project will be assessed by a panel consisting of one external and one or two internal examiners. The documentation and reflection will be assessed by an internal and an external examiner. The assessment will be made on the basis of the criteria defined in the section “The Course’s Learning Outcomes”

The students will have to pass this assessment in order to be allowed to do the public presentation and conversation with their examiners
