The Choreography programme of the Stockholm University of Arts creates a milieu for learning, research and creation processes, as well as for the development of choreographic practices. Negotiating and analysing different notions of the body and of movement, it focuses on problem posing and emphasizes the links between choreography and social, ethical and political movements.
The program is in constant dialogue with the other programs and courses of the department of dance as well as the research center at Stockholm University of the Arts.
