Open call: Performing Arts MFA at the Iceland Academy of the Arts

ILMOITTAJA: ICELAND ACADEMY OF THE ARTS
29.3.2017

This twelve-month Masters programme is a question-led study that supports performance-related artists and art professionals to experiment and develop as practitioners and researchers through rigorous mentoring, extensive workshops and encounters with leading artists, thinkers and curators from around the world – as well as intensive peer-to-peer exchange.

Over three semesters, artists enter into an environment geared towards extending and deepening their practice – as well as their capacity for generating discourse around that practice.

The Master’s programme takes each enrolled artist’s practice as the starting point for the study, and as such it is expected that each studying artist enters the course with a performance-related project that they wish to develop and realise throughout the 12 months. This project should be specific to their interests, questions and concerns as an artist – and draw upon their pre-existing artistic practice.

The course organises around guest artists, curators, thinkers and arts organisations from around the world that approach performance, choreography, theatre and dance as expanded fields of practice – capable of producing experimental intersections between art and other fields of knowledge and practice, such as activism, social practices, fields of science and philosophy.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS 21. APRIL 2017
