The Master Performance Practices at ArtEZ is an incubator for artistic research around the Body in Performance and its wider ecology. The course is based in the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES in Arnhem, Netherlands, harbouring a community of de-disciplined and diverse thinkers who promote performance-making as a strategy for equitable societies.

In brief

• Performance-making and critical thinking: A home base for performance-making and critical thinking that is geared to constructing intersectional, unconventional, and speculative futures for both making and research
• Design your own study programme: Interdisciplinary and flexible programme: you design the trajectory of your own research
• Different residencies throughout the year: Four intensive and collective residential periods (three to five weeks) per year
• Work with artists from all over the world: Close dialogue with a team of experienced lecturers and inspiring guests from an international network in the performing arts
• Create a portfolio of critical and probing performances: Develop a portfolio of performances that critically probe the de-disciplining potential of your practices that engage in – and are entangled with – the Body in Performance
