DAS Theatre – one programme, two profiles.
We believe that an intense dialogue between theatre makers and practitioners of expanded curation offers an inspiring environment that instigates new ideas, approaches and practices – for both.
Are you looking for challenging peer-to-peer exchanges, new input and unexpected artistic experiences? This is exactly how the DAS Theatre programme supports your artistic and professional development. DAS Theatre is a full-time two-year programme, based in a recently renovated building with a broad range of facilities, located in one of the most up-and-coming parts of the city of Amsterdam. It offers a Master of Arts (MA) degree.
DAS Theatre (previously DasArts), DAS Graduate School
Performing arts makers and professionals studying at DAS Theatre define their goals, explore research methods and gradually adopt the appropriate ones to foster their artistic development. Although the focus is on individual development, various components of our two-year Master programme emphasize encounters as their main educational strategy: feedback sessions, theory seminars, practice labs, the ten-week curated Block programme, a two-week student-driven programme, etc.
DAS Theatre is part of the DAS Graduate School, established in 2016 by the Amsterdam University of the Arts to bring its masters, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Choreography (application deadline: December 1) and DAS Research are the other departments. Moreover, the DAS Graduate School has transformed the heart of the new building into an open, welcoming locale for gatherings and meetings between the arts, science, education and society.
We look forward to welcoming you during our Open Day on November 4. Ask questions about our curriculum, meet the staff, share activities, and see the work of the artists currently studying at DAS Theatre. If you want to attend the Open Day, please send us an email at email@example.com. See also Open Day on Facebook.
Deadline for Applications: 17 November 2016.
