DAS Theatre and DAS Choreography Master's programmes: The call for applications for the year 2019–20 is now open. Application material is due by November 20, 2018. 

DAS Graduate School was established by the Academy of Theatre and Dance in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. We offer an environment where new ideas, approaches and practices can be instigated and exchanged; a place of research and development, meant to have an impact on the future of the performing arts field.

Studying at DAS Theatre
DAS Theatre is a master’s environment for research and development, open to international and Dutch practitioners involved in the wider field of the performing arts as artists or curators.
This is a fulltime, two-year residential programme in which individual trajectories benefit from a community of peers, tutors and advisors. It provides a working space, workshops with guest teachers and a broad international network. 

Artists and curators meet in one programme that supports artistic and curatorial research, challenges professional boundaries and cultivates potential connectedness with audiences, institutions, discourses, partners and collaborators.

Studying at DAS Choreography 
Artists who have established a professional practice and are seeking possibilities for further reflection and development can increase their research skills at DAS Choreography. The individual artistic practice is the point of departure and will be the guiding thread of the course design.

This non-residential programme comprised of seminars, residencies and individual mentoring facilitates the development of an intensive and sustained dialogue. In the words of graduates, it offers a place to "slow down the chaos," "allow for being overwhelmed and not knowing," and "allow time for insisting on one thing." In short, it offers space for creating conditions for deepening artistic practices.
