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 solo choreography 3 students are asked to create and perform own artistic work in collaboration with a student/artist of another discipline. Embodiment and interdisciplinairity are the central axes for research and creation. 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 and exploration in resonance with another discipline, interacting with another artist, developing collaborative working methods, artistic choice making, sharing, feedbacking and reflecting. The students are expected to manage their own project and maintain clear and proactive communication with their collaborators and coaches. Students are prompted to experiment with varying forms of performativity for a final presentation (of maximum 10 min) of the project and develop their own artistic voice.
