The MA in Performing Arts Practice and Visual Culture offers a context of practice-based research where to experiment, develop projects and to discuss and question the relationship between theory and practice, as well as to critically reflect on it. It is proposed as a space for artists and researchers who would like to develop new working strategies through collaboration.
With a very broad and expanded conception of the performing arts practices, this MA promotes collaboration and self-organization among participants and proposes tools for the development of methodologies and theoretical critical discourses. It questions, reveals and amplifies the modes in which currently meaning is generated throug a variety of formats such as laboratories, seminars, workshops or reading and discussion groups.
Our transdisciplinary program of study offers the participant the acquisition of specific competences in their respective fields of research and work and facilitates their insertion in the artistic community by explicitely favouring encounters with artists, researchers, curators and other invited professionals.
It constitutes an ideal context for people with experience or education in theatre, dance, performance art, visual arts, music, architecture, art history, cultural studies, cultural management and related areas who wish to engage in practice-based and collaborative research projects.
A project by ARTEA, offered by the University of Castilla-La Mancha in collaboration with Reina Sofía Museum, La Casa Encendida, Matadero Madrid, Azala-espacio de creación and with the support of Off Limits Gallery, L'animal a l'esquena and Teatro Pradillo.
