This is an open call to all doers, makers and thinkers – all artists, curators and designers – all practitioners from across the disciplines looking to develop and extend their practice in the performance-related field.
Running over 12 months, with an option to extend the learning post-graduation for a further 12 months through a specially-funded EU scheme, this Master is geared towards practitioners that want to dive deep into their own world of work in conversation with a constellation of practitioners from around the world.
Those enrolled are provided with:
Extensive access to a diverse range of studios, on-going studio visits, well-equipped facilities, residencies, regular sharing and feedback situations, leading practitioners from Iceland and all over the world, intensive peer-to-peer exchange, continuous and rigorous mentoring, on-going workshops, labs and symposiums, weekly experimental voice- and body-based practice-sharing sessions, reading groups and writing seminars, all grounded in a dynamic culture of significant listening, care and rigour.
