3rd Cycle Research Group
DAS Graduate School initiated the 3rd cycle research group THIRD in 2016. It is a unique facilitating model designed as a twoyear trajectory for smallscale learning cohorts of seven fellows each year. THIRD prepares theatre and dance artists for 3rd cycle research opportunities through the processes of refining their individual artistic research proposals, sharpening their national and/or international aspirations, and defining their affiliation as well as funding possibilities. The cohort environment generates collective experiment and reflection on the potential of artistic research.
