Course Description

This choreography and performance programme is designed for experienced professional dance and performance practitioners to 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.

We also have excellent links with dance companies and creative organisations. In easy reach of London’s vibrant dance scene, the campus has superb studios and a state-of-the-art theatre for dance students.
