Students taking the Choreographers pathway * have the opportunity to explore and expand on their existing choreographic practice within a dynamic research environment. The course embraces practices which place choreography in diverse contexts with staff currently working in dance-theatre, new media and dance film, site-specific and installation work. The Compositional Practice module is complemented by the professional performance programme and a series of seminars by visiting artists and researchers. Classes function as a lab for development, and collaborative interdisciplinary projects are encouraged. Students’ projects have included a performance installation utilising Isadora software, a site sensitive performance and residency in a local nursing home alongside projects exploring movement based choreographies. Choreographers are apprenticed to visiting choreographers and may apply for the mapdance touring commission.
