MA Performance Dance (Independent Research)

Course Description

Independent Research students are guided throughout the course by specialist tutors. Students also meet each other regularly to talk about different ways of interrogating theory and practice.

They have opportunities to be part of a lively research culture, and to attend a regular programme of performances and research presentations, given by resident tutors and by visiting companies, choreographers and researchers.

The degree, which culminates in a Dissertation, involves research into different areas of dance, either through theoretical enquiry or a mixture of theory and practice.

A large-scale project specially tailored to individual student needs is a key component of this MA.
