Choreography and Professional Practices

The course offers an introduction to research methods in the arts and to strategies for documenting live performance practice. It also provides opportunities to pursue live performance practices as a choreographer and to consider how work is situated in relation to the wider field of professional contemporary dance practice. It allows for single discipline or interdisciplinary practice-based arts research projects involving choreography, performance, fine art, music, installation, and so forth. It is designed to cater both for students who wish to develop their dance-making skills in order to further their careers as reflective practitioners, and as a foundation programme for those hoping to pursue practical and/or theoretical research at MPhil or PhD level.
