MA/MFA Choreography students will join a thriving artistic and research community and, with support and mentorship from experienced staff and visiting practitioners, will be encouraged to develop a distinctive choreographic voice and build on their portfolio of professional experience.
The MA and MFA awards share 180 credits of taught provision. MFA students take a further 60-credit module by undertaking a major placement with a dance company or arts organisation. Both awards offer you the opportunity to develop your performance skills and choreographic practice in a stimulating and creative teaching environment. The degrees foster a heightened level of critical reflection on practice where students can realise their potential as practical scholars and pursue dance research, informed by a deep level of practical investigation, experimentation and discovery. This will also prepare you to undertake practice-based research degrees at a higher level (MPhil/PhD). There will be opportunities for you to present your work at performance platforms and external venues and develop your workshop and teaching skills.
Staff expertise and research is in choreography, improvisation, performance training, integrated dance practice, digital performance, contemporary cross-cultural performance, sitespecific performance, somatic movement practice, community dance, dance on camera and articulating practice as research.
• Choreographic laboratory – workshops, self-directed projects • Performance training – portfolio of dance technique and/ or skill classes • Research methodologies – choreographer as researcher • Final project – choreographic thesis • Placement project – (MFA only) six months’ placement off campus.
