The ArtEZ Performance Practices programme welcomes independent and responsible artist-researchers, wishing to further, and more rigorously, advance their careers in performance art, live art, contemporary theatre, conceptual choreography, experimental dance or visual art.

De-disciplined Body in Performance

Our curriculum is at the forefront of both artistic and intellectual enquiry, and facilitated by a team of internationally renowned practitioners and researchers. Students design rigorous lines of research, investigating, challenging, and reshaping the role of the artist, and contributing to the advancement of performance in their chosen fields.
