a.pass is a one-year artistic research program open to artists and theoreticians with an interest in exploring the performative and/or spatial dimensions of their practice.

if you are working in the performing arts and want to start an artistic research in a professional research environment, free from production constraints,

or if the concepts of performativity or/and scenography are (relatively) new to you and you want to explore them in-depth, in relation to your own practice

then a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) can offer you a one-year post master program in which you develop your research project. In a context of self-organization and collaboration you create a personal trajectory through workshops, individual mentorings and interactions with the other participants. At the end of this period, you present and communicate your research.

beside the post master programs, a.pass invites artists and theoreticians engaged in a PhD in the Arts to develop independent artistic and transdisciplinary projects producing knowledge and tools relating to the key issues of the a.pass program.

The a.pass context is designed to give the possibility to develop your skills as an independent and critical researcher and provides you with the context and instruments that answer to your specific questions and needs. Participants of a.pass manage their own research in continuous interaction with the other participants and, by doing so, engage in the organization of the shared curriculum.

practical: The a.pass program is a 12-month program consisting of three blocks of four months. The first three months of each block take place within the organized collective research environment. Participants develop their personal trajectory in a constant communication with the other participants and co-ordinators, through participation in workshops, with feedback from dedicated mentors and through the choice of personal mentors. The last month of each block is open for the further individual development of the research project.

a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies)is an international research and training centre for artists and theoreticians, based on the principles of self-organization, collaboration and trans-disciplinarity.

Out of the notions of performativity and the performative space, a.pass offers researchers the possibility to develop their skills as independent artistic researchers in a collective learning environment, constructing their individualized curriculum in constant dialogue with their environment.

a.pass wants to develop, archive and share tools for a qualitative and societally relevant research practice.
