The master's programme in choreography focuses on two aspects and their relation: Physical practice and Choreographic production.The student is encouraged to develop a complex and deepened understanding of different possible relations between the two and the potentials that those relations bring along. The programme also aims to educate the student in the contextual importance in choreographic production. For example, how the site of presentation, the choice of performers, the duration of the work and the construction of the working process all are choreographic elements within the work. In other words, in which way the “how” is the “what”.

NORDIC CHOREOGRAPHIC PLATFORM (NCP)

The master's programme is a part of the Nordic Choreographic Platform (NCP) – a collaboration between DASPA and the master's programmes in Choreography in KHIO (Oslo), Uniarts  (Stockholm) and Uniarts (Helsinki). Once per semester, the involved programmes gather for joint studies. The periods of exchange will, when possible, be co-ordinated with important events in the different countries, such as festivals, conferences, and symposiums. In each city there is also a collaborating venue and the students will have a chance to meet and present their work to the directors and/or other staff of those venues. This is seen as a way to ensure a certain Nordic network is in place for the graduating student.
