“ ‘Friend’ and ‘free’ in English… come from the same Indo-European root, which conveys the idea of a shared power that grows. Being free and having ties was one and the same thing. I am free because I have ties, because I am linked to a reality greater than me.” 
- The Invisible Committee

Welcome to the festive annual ritual that marks the conclusion of our master programmes! Over the course of five days at four locations, fourteen artists in the fields of Theatre and Choreography will present their work.

Rather than singling out the achievements of particular individuals, this programme offers an encounter with a group of artists who – over the course of two years and across programmes and year groups – have engaged in conversation - inquisitive and critical - and collaboration. DAS Graduate School has become an environment in which students, researchers and guests meet and mingle.  A place where affinities, friendships and artistic constellations are formed and also challenged. 

This programme aims to celebrate these relational support structures, which are as important as the artistic insights of each of the graduates. Come and join us!
