Contemporary Performative Arts is a programme aimed at the student
who is profoundly interested in seeking to perceive and reach beyond the confines of "the box".
You are a professionally active artist with a wealth of experience from the field extending through physical performance, dance for screen and/or sound art, with emphasis on the interpretative aspects.
You are applying to the Programme with your own project, an issue framed by you that you want to investigate and solve during your two years of study.
You must be willing to explore qualities, methods and ways of thinking within the field of Contemporary Performative Arts.
You must feel a strong need to communicate by means of your artistry, not only within departmental limits but also in the greater public space, the community outside the school.
You must be open to international networking and to working in a variety of environments. Furthermore you must feel a desire to immerse yourself in reflection about your professional knowledge and skills and about the roles of art in a social and societal perspective.
