Course content

The final artistic project for the Bachelor Exam presents an opportunity to integrate knowledge, skills, experience, interests and questions into an ongoing research throughout the final year. It consists of three elements: research paper, group choreography and solo choreography.

In group choreography students are asked to choreograph a group dance to be performed by BA1 and BA2 dance students that is a maximum of 10 minutes long. The process incorporates the development of a theme from a research question, and works through a series of artistic and logistical decisions. Students are prompted to give attention to all parts of their process: from, amongst others, movement generation, development, variation, manipulation of material, consolidation, applying choreographic and structural devices, sharing, feedbacking and reflecting. Students are also prompted to experiment with varying forms of performativity. Next to the focus on the creation, the students are also expected to create a constructive working environment, where both themselves and their dancers feel safe to challenge their dancing and choreographic skills to a maximum.
