Choreography and Performance is an international master's degree designed and organised by the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies at Giessen University, in the collaboration with the Department for Contemporary Dance at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HFMDK).
The programme combines practical and reflexive approaches, enabling students to engage in an expanded notion of choreography and performance. The focus of the study lies in the experimentation and research of the movement and contemporary performance practices, especially in relation to contemporary aesthetic, philosophical and political approaches. Students are encouraged to work through the multiplicity of formats and expressions and relate between movement practices, performance and dance processes through critical thinking and speculation. Practical work and artistic experimentation are highly encouraged and explored through different practical modules. Special attention is also given to the analysis of current modes of production, position of artistic work and creation of performance in an international context, which can help students find and pursue their own independent practices and modes of working.
Students can choose among different modules and seminars offered by the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts (HfMDK) and other partners of the Hessian Theatre Academy (Hessische Theaterakademie). An important part of the programme focuses on the students' artistic work. Artistic projects, practical courses, body and dance training and open dramaturgical formats enable a variety of advisory and mentoring processes. Various workshops with guest professors and lecturers from the field of contemporary performance and dance offer insight into their different working methods. The master's programme is also connected to other cultural institutions in the region, such as Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, Mousonturm and Frankfurt LAB which provide professional conditions for artistic work.
The MA Choreography and Performance is aimed at students who have intensively dealt with performance, choreography or movement practice in their studies and artistic work. The degree has been developed as a consecutive MA degree and builds on a first professional qualifying degree of Theatre Studies, dance, or adequate completed training plus possible professional experience, spanning over several years, leading to a further professional artistic qualifying degree. The goal is to train artistic personalities, who are prepared for the complexity of the demands of contemporary performing art in the field of dance and performance theoretically and practically.
The professional use of competence gained during the degree is extensive and depends highly on the individual students and their individually-chosen focal points.
A low number of students (max 7 per year) enables the teachers to support individual students systematically.
