Summary

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 whilst 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.

Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.
