The 14-month MA Choreography and Professional Practices programme examine innovative and experimental approaches to choreographic practice, research and scholarship. It explores choreographic practices and methods of research, experimentation and innovation i.e. improvisation methods / techniques, somatic approaches, developing new movement vocabularies, collaboration and devising. The programme challenges students to explore their own practice and examine their working methods as dance-makers, students will consider where their work is situated within the U.K. and European dance ‘ecology’ and will explore how their work relates more broadly to a range of international dance trends and practices.

Students will explore innovative and experimental articulations, dissemination of dance knowledge and applications of dance across a range of contexts and media for example:

· Choreographic presentations and platforms
· Site-specific dance
· Somatically-informed practice
· Performance installation and alternative performance formats.

Programme structure

The focus of the MA is on practice-based choreographic research.

Students are expected to carry out an independent research project on a topic relevant to the field of choreography. For this module students are supported through seminar sessions and tutorials during the two semesters so that they can develop research skills which are essential for lifelong learning, career flexibility; and for professional practice as well as for personal and professional development. In addition, students have the option to become involved in a number of collaborative projects through which they can, as part of the degree, develop project management, time management and interpersonal team work skills.

For the award of the MA you need to attain 180 credits at Level 7 including the Dissertation module.
