Established by the Amsterdam Academy of Theatre and Dance, DAS Graduate School unites three different master programmes: DAS Theatre, DAS Choreography, DAS Creative Producing and the projects of DAS Research.
DAS Theatre is a master’s programme for research and development that is open to Dutch and international practitioners working in the field of performing arts as artists or curators.
DAS Theatre is a full-time, two-year residential programme in which individual trajectories can benefit from a community of peers, tutors and advisors. It provides a working space, workshop sessions with guest teachers, and a broad international network.
Artists who have established a professional practice, and seek possibilities for further reflection and development can increase their research skills at DAS Choreography.
This two-year non-residential master’s programme aims to contribute to the field of critical and contemporary dance practice. The individual artistic practice is the point of departure and will be the guiding thread of the course design.
DAS Creative Producing
The world won't change itself. A statement that applies equally to the realm of the arts. There is a need for producers who are critical thinkers, possess clear views of their own, and who are not afraid to think and work beyond existing structures and disciplines. That is why we set up DAS Creative Producing.
The master’s programme DAS Creative Producing - Entrepreneurship in the Arts is a two-year, interdisciplinary MA programme with an international outlook. It is aimed at project leaders, producers, business directors, and curators who want to be creative producers and who are professionally active across the arts: in theatre, film, music, digital art, fine art, and dance. In the course of the master’s programme students develop their own views on the arts and on society.
