DAS Theatre is an environment for research and development open to Dutch and international practitioners involved in the expanded field of performing arts as artists or curators.

It is a full-time, two-year residential Master’s programme where individual trajectories can benefit from a peer community, tutorship and advising. It provides a working space, workshops sessions with guest teachers, and a broad international network. Artists and curators are unified in one program, conceived to support artistic and curatorial research, to challenge professional boundaries and to cultivate the potential connectedness with audience, institutions, discourses, partners and collaborators.

Call for Applications

The open call for the 2019-2021 enrolment will be launched in September 2018, inviting practitioners with diverse backgrounds and interests rooted in performing arts making and curating. 

Read the Open Call of 2017 for the profile 'curators' or the profile for 'theatre makers'.

DAS Graduate School

DAS Theatre is part, together with the Master of Choreography, Master Creative Producing and DAS Research, of the newly founded DAS Graduate School of Amsterdam Academy of the Arts, offering an environment where new ideas, approaches and practices can be instigated; and it is place of change, research and development, meant to have an impact on the future of the performing arts field.
