Starting May 2016, I am involved in further creation and finetunning of the MA program in Expanded Curation at the Amsterdam University of the Arts – DAS Theatre program.

Expanded Curation (MA)
The arts are facing some real challenges nowadays. The overall political climate is demanding far more entrepreneurial and self-supporting models. In the midst of digital innovations, quests for (new) audiences, and a new sense of responsibility within social and political movements, the performing arts are repositioning themselves. Guest teachers and tutors at DAS Theatre are practitioners and theoreticians who relate to these shifting conditions in different ways.

Amongst other professionals in the performing arts, curators, and (creative) producers also need to redefine their roles and develop new models. By adopting hybrid practices, collaborating with diverse partners and reaching out beyond the artistic realm, they expand the common understanding of their role and contribute to new perspectives for a sustainable art practice. 
In the Expanded Curation programme, DAS Theatre offers art workers from all walks of the performing arts an environment in which they can gain specific knowledge and skills, enlarge their international network and sharpen their critical discourse in order to develop their concepts and practices. We facilitate a continuous dialogue between theatre makers and the people who create the conditions and context for artistic work.

Emerging performing arts professionals often have two needs: on the one hand, finding a place and the time to do research in order to develop their practice, and on the other, engaging in professional projects in order to build up their career. DAS Theatre has designed its structure to create room for integrating professional activities in the study course.
