The MA Performance Practices welcomes artists interested in practice-as-research to advance their careers in performance art, choreography, contemporary theatre, experimental dance, or visual art.

Our curriculum is at the forefront of both artistic and intellectual enquiry around politics and ethics, empowering artists to develop performance making as a strategy for equitable societies, and intersectional futures. Facilitated by a team of internationally renowned practitioners and researchers, the students are intra-active agents, co-constituting the(ir) learning together with the wider ecology and contributing to the sustainable advancement of their fields.

If you are an artist with a curiosity for learning, a spirit of experimentation, an ambition to grow, and committed to artmaking as a life-long practice in dialogue with peers and audiences, you will find your place at the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES.
