Course content

Bringing these topics inside the Master Dance programme allows the dance artist to perceive music and sound not only as elements to support the creation, but as agencies and tools to research, compose and define a performance. The goal is to further expand the dialogue between the student and their practice by engaging in an exchange with two teacher-artists that will share in one week their practices, research and perspectives in these topics.

Together we see the intertwining of these perspectives contributing not only to a wider understanding of music and an expanded notion of sound, but also to new modes of perceiving, composing and creating dance.
