The Master Programme in Choreography 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 Master Programme in Choreography
The structure of the programme offered by Stockholm University of Arts resembles a choreographic score that facilitates the correspondences and interferences between different artistic and non-artistic practices and their potential for reformulation. It takes interest in the complex dynamics between arts, civil society and the public, and critically addresses the question of agency in relation to choreography.
Here, the question of participation is crucial to the programme, including the reflection on the own involvement and responsibility in choreographic and societal processes, as well as in the productional and organizational dimensions of choreography. The programme operates internationally, but also emphasizes the importance of local relations and implementation.

Thematic learning processes include practical/artistic, methodological and theoretical knowledge, research and interdisciplinary meetings with other artistic and scientific fields of knowledge and expression. Each semester, except for the fourth semester that is mainly dedicated to the students’ degree projects, three courses are running parallel to each other. This structure enables to make connections between the courses, as well as between different topics and activities and to explore how they can inform each other. This trans-disciplinary approach allows addressing broad and over-arching questions through specific questions, singularities and details.
