About

The Performing Arts with Specialisation in Contemporary Performative Arts programme of the University of Gothenburg is for practising artists with an interest in interdisciplinary artistic situations. We examine the artist’s interaction with the surrounding community and aspects related to location and dramatic structure in artistic work.

Overview

About

Genre-crossing and exploratory creative processes 

The Performing Arts with Specialisation in Contemporary Performative Arts programme of the University of Gothenburg is for those who are interested in genre-crossing expressions and styles for non-traditional venues. A recurring focus is public space and its power structures, and challenges in the relationship between actor and spectator. The main focus is your exploratory project that you develop with various perspectives, including performative sound arts, physical and site-specific gestures, films, and public spaces. You will be able to immerse yourself in your own and others’ artistic methods, reflect on the role of the performative arts in a cross-disciplinary context, and place your specific practice in relation to other artistic expressions.

Interdisciplinary and collaborative

The programme is characterized by an interdisciplinary environment through interaction with fellow students and visiting lecturers, where societal, site-specific, and dramaturgical aspects are central issues. Also included are courses focusing on society, contemporary dramatists, digital tools, site-specific aspects, and public spaces as an arena for artistic expression. The Academy of Music and Drama provides a platform for collaboration with students in other programmes in both theatrical and musical areas. Teachers and artists who are active nationally and internationally participate in the programme, and we collaborate with other universities, institutions, independent groups, platforms, and performing artists both locally and internationally.

An in-depth exploration and development of your ideas

Half of the programme consists of your investigative project, with one module per semester dedicated to it. One aspect of the project is working with experimental forms of academic and artistic writing, and you will receive support through individual supervision. Through seminars, workshops, and lab forums, your project is regularly processed in feedback sessions along with fellow students. This part of the programme has a clear connection with artistic research in the field. Within the framework of this course, you have a great deal of freedom to test new ideas and reflect on your choices.
