The New Performative Practices programme of the Stockholm University of Arts is aimed at experienced, practicing performers from diverse fields. Performing artists are given context and support to engage with their own performative practices as well as tools to further their research.


The New Performative Practices programme of the Stockholm University of Arts comprises two years of advanced studies. It is research preparatory, which qualifies the student for a Master of Fine Arts in Choreography, with a specialisation in Performative Practices. Artistic development demands the ability to constructively question established methods. New Performative Practices gives space to art that challenges the commonplace.

Master Programme New Performative Practices

The Master programme New Performative Practices is a road to deepened and expanded knowledge. Physical, live-performance practices are studied for the development of new relationships to audience, new perceptions of the performer's role in society and a critical, ethically viable relationship to the continuous unfolding of live performance. The individual artist's development of a personally sustainable practice is placed in dynamic relation to society's demands, understanding and respect for artistic practice.
