Over three semesters, artists enter into an environment geared towards extending and deepening their own practice – as well as their capacity for generating discourse around that practice.
The Performing Arts programme of Iceland University of the Arts takes each enrolled artist’s practice as the starting point for the study, and as such it is expected that each studying artist enters the course with a performance-related project that they wish to develop and realise throughout the 12 months. This project should be specific to their interests, questions and concerns as an artist – and draw upon their pre-existing artistic practice.The course organises around guest artists, curators, thinkers and arts organisations from around the world that approach performance, choreography, theatre and dance as an expanded field of practice capable of producing experimental intersectionsbetween art and other fields of knowledge and practice – such as activism, social practices, fields of science and philosophy.
