Masterstudiet i koreografi er et toårig fulltidsstudium. Studiet bygger på en bred forståelse av koreografi og henvender seg til studenter som ønsker å utvikle og fordype sin kunstneriske forståelse gjennom skapende praksis og kritisk refleksjon. Sentrale tema er komposisjon og dans, interdisiplinært samarbeid, så vel som kunstnerisk utviklingsarbeid i spenningsfeltet mellom tradisjon og innovasjon. Søknadsfrist er 1. desember.

Studiet gir innsikt i å vurdere, planlegge, og gjennomføre oppgaver og prosjekter i samarbeid med andre. Ulike koreografiske problemstillinger utforskes kunstnerisk, så vel som i en historisk og samfunnsmessig, nasjonal og internasjonal kontekst.

Do you like to experiment and compose with movements in time and space? Do you enjoy choreographing thoughts, rhythmic patterns, imaginary landscapes, or affects? Would you like to develop your understanding of the poetics of choreography?  

Become a Master's student in Choreography at KHiO.

At KHIO we are looking closely at the process of developing artistic ideas and materializing them through performances and other forms of expression and practices across art and everyday life.

Choreography is a broad field:  It ranges from compositional skills, performative practices to expanded choreographic strategies. It involves skills for creating conditions for organizing work processes and interdisciplinary collaborations, and our ability to reflect and articulate what the agency of dance and choreography can do in the world.

To give you a flavour of the programme, the workshops and courses we offer involve themes such as choreographic methods and tools, performance and project work; performance theory and philosophical aesthetics; writing practices (in different genres) and dramaturgy; introduction to social choreography, critical whiteness and intersectional feminism; exposure to projects addressing memory work, history, and archival material; and choreographic poetry.

The programme combines tutorials, workshops, seminars, study trips, and project-based learning that includes making performances and other possible formats of presentation. The programme is part of the Nordic Choreographic Platform and has biannual joint courses together with the master’s programmes in Choreography in Stockholm (DOCH), Helsinki (TEAK) and Copenhagen (DASPA).
 
We value curiosity and openness, dialogue and collaborations, diversity in backgrounds of training and performance cultures; cross-disciplinary exchanges at different levels of artistic development (BA, MA, Ph.D.); providing conditions for experimentation in a safe space that does not tolerate sexism, racism, ableism and other kinds of discrimination.
 
Facilities and resources at KHiO are extensive and include nine studios, nine stages, a library, and communal spaces shared with the MA students at the Theatre Academy.
 
The pool of teachers includes Olive Bieringa, Jonathan Burrows, Bojana Cvejić, Mette Edvardsen, Anne Grete Eriksen, Ingri Fiksdal, Rosalind Goldberg, Deborah Hay, Solveig Styve Holte, Lisa Baudouin Lie, Tor Lindstrand, Janne-Camilla Lyster, Chrysa Parkinson, Anders Paulin, Per Roar, Torunn Robstad, Eszter Salamon, Eivind Seljeseth, Hooman Sharifi, Amanda Steggell.

Application deadline 1 December.
