About

The Choreomundus programme at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as Intangible Cultural Heritage within the broader contexts of Ethnochoreology, the Anthropology of Dance, Dance Studies, and Heritage Studies.

Overview

The Choreomundus programme from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is offered by a consortium of four universities internationally recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance and other movement practices: University of Clermont Auvergne (UCA, coordinator), Clermont-Ferrand, France; Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway; University of Szeged (SZTE), Hungary; University of Roehampton, London (URL), United Kingdom.

Careers 

  • Employment opportunities exist worldwide within public and private organisations responsible for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) and within higher education and research. 
  • The production of digitised inventories of ICH for archival purposes or development of computer animation from motion capture data are some areas in which Choreomundus skills are required.

Programme Structure

  • Choreomundus focuses on fieldwork and formal analysis of movement, and engages with a variety of theoretical and methodological frameworks. 
  • The programme provides practical skills to observe, analyse, document, and evaluate dances, thereby developing an appreciation of dance that is comparative, cross-cultural, applied, and embodied. 
  • It equips students to make sense of intangible heritage within a culturally diverse world, to promote culturally appropriate modes of knowledge transmission, and to engage with cultural differences and problems of social exclusion in the 21st century.
