MA Choreography

The MA Choreography (MAC) has an artistic/ practical orientation. Its specific approach lies in the expansion of body knowledge in order to develop movement research from precisely this knowledge, and to assist in developing choreographic productions with methods of composition. The degree course is open for the entire range of productions at city and state theaters, site-specific works or installations in the independent scene.


A fundamental concept of the course is based on working in groups; here individual artistic positions, work forms and projects are presented to and critically examined with fellow students in order to clarify them in this discourse. The approach is connected to a focus on the ability to make artistic intentions realizable in cooperation with dancers and other artists.
