This Masters is the perfect breeding ground for innovative new choreographers who respond to initiative. Whether you're in the early stages of your career or an experienced dancer wanting to create new opportunities for yourself, our stimulating programme will present new challenges testing your practice and reaching beyond the conventional boundaries of accepted research.
The opportunity to create many dance works over the programme, culminating in two months on your Masters Project, gives you the freedom to develop your own artistic practice, where you'll pursue an individual line of enquiry and develop critical engagement with your practice.

The MA Choreography Programme will provide you with the opportunity to interrogate your own practice, whether you are a choreographer in the early stages of your career or an experienced dancer wishing to change direction. You will pursue your own line of enquiry and develop a critical engagement with your choreographic process through the creation of dance works. You will be able to experiment, take risks and develop an individual artistic voice. You will also gain insights into different creative practices in dance
and other art forms through contact with visiting artists, while exploring the different artistic and social contexts for the creation and reception of work. You will be encouraged to create pieces in a range of settings and media, and work collaboratively with artists from other disciplines.

Programme Content

Our MA Choreography is designed to give you two days per week of workshops, lectures and seminars next to studio practice, so that it feels like working in the profession but in a guided yet challenging manner. There are also two intensive blocks of research practice where you collaborate with other artists.

The following are core elements that support your choreographic development:
• An emphasis on testing out ideas and risk taking, seeing choreography as a nexus of ideas, intentions, movement concerns and proposals.
• Working with visiting artists to give further insights into a variety of dance and other inter-disciplinary practices.
• Exploring different artistic and social contexts for the creation and reception of work and the creation of pieces in a range of settings and media.
• Collaborating with artists from other disciplines

M502 Research Methods 30 Credits
M511 Examining Practice 30 Credits

Progression Routes

Recent graduates have worked on and choreographed productions all over Europe, including research at KOLT, productions at FLOTA Slovenia, Pro Progressione in Europe and other companies in the UK.

"The Trinity Laban Graduate School and other programmes provide wonderful opportunities for emerging and developing choreographers, to test their research beyond the normal boundaries of accepted practice, in an engaging and supportive atmosphere."
