Course content

Production Practice focuses on the students artistic development through repertoire, creations and workshops.

In Repertoire, the student learns and explores movement material of an existing piece of a (guest)choreographer leading to a form of presentation. The student is introduced to the compositional ideas and working methods linked to the style and vision of the choreographer and is encouraged to explore the relationship between form and content. The student is guided to find his or her own embodied connection to and interpretation of the existing dance material. The material is taught by the choreographer or an assistant /dancer from the company.

In Creation, the student experiences a creative group process which will lead to a creation and presentation. The process is guided by a (guest) choreographer. The student explores different creative and compositional working methods linked to the style and vision of the choreographer. The student participates actively in the process of exploration and composition. 

In Workshops, the student participates in an experience with a dance artist that can take many formats that range from a 2 hour workshop or post show discussion to a week long residency or symposium. Dance artists are invited to share their personal visions for students to experience new working methodologies or artistic practices. 

Production Practice as a cluster of subjects brings students in touch with different elements of the professional dance working field with artists active in the field, providing a wide range of experiences of artistic practice, styles and methodologies. Students should begin to reflect on their relationship with each different practice experienced and the resonance each has within their own development as a dance artist.
