Masterstudiet i dans er et toårig fulltidsstudium. Studiet åpner for en undersøkende tilnærming til det å være utøver i dagens scenekunstfelt, og henvender seg til dansere som ønsker å utvikle sin performative artikulasjon og refleksjon i egne- og samarbeidende prosjekter. Studiet gir teoretiske perspektiver som belyser dansekunsten som kulturelt uttrykk i estetisk, dansehistorisk, politisk, etisk og sosial sammenheng. Søknadsfrist er 1. desember.

I studiet ser vi på hvordan tenkning om kunst kan interagere med praktisk kunstproduksjon og vice versa.


Are you passionate about embodiment and corporeal literacy? Would you like to develop your agency as a dance maker and performer?

Become a Master's student in Dance at KHiO.

At KHIO we are looking closely at the process of transition from the dancer as a craftsperson to the dancer as an artist and performer. Studying dance includes dance skills but it also involves reflection and articulating agency as a dancer. Dancers are artists whose practices and competencies shape the creation of performances, exhibitions, and other forms of expression across art and everyday life.

To give you a flavor of the programme, the workshops and courses involve areas such as corporeal literacy, performance skills and daily physical practice; memory, history, and the archive; philosophical aesthetics and dramaturgy; introduction to social choreography; critical whiteness and intersectional feminism; and choreographic poetry. During their studies, the students are provided with facilities and time to develop an MA graduation project, which ranges from performance to other possible formats of presentation.

We value versatility in techniques, diverse backgrounds of physical training, and diverse 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 plenty of communal spaces shared with The Theater Academy. The pool of teachers includes Jonathan Burrows, Bojana Cvejić, Mette Edvardsen, Ingri Fiksdal, Rosalind Goldberg, Deborah Hay, Solveig Styve Holte, Tor Lindstrand, Janne-Camilla Lyster, Chrysa Parkinson, Anders Paulin, Per Roar, Torunn Robstad, Eszter Salamon.

Application deadline 1 December.
