Studying at DAS Theatre
DAS Theatre offers one programme, one "dramaturgy of learning," for students of two profiles: theatre makers and curators. We believe that an intense dialogue between both contributes to the development of new models and practices of relating to the world. Do you think your work would benefit from experimentation, unexpected artistic encounters and intense peer-to-peer exchanges? This is exactly how the DAS Theatre programme supports your artistic and professional development. An international environment, a broad network, a home and a working space, DAS Theatre is a full-time, two-year residential Master’s programme.

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.

Ask Your questions
You are warmly invited to join us at one of our public events during the course of the year to experience what studying at DAS Graduate School could mean for you. At these events there is an opportunity to speak with our current students, alumni and staff, and to ask questions about the curriculum and application procedure.

May 31–June 4: "Between Dog and Wolf": Master's presentations. At the conclusion of an intensive two-year period, DAS Theatre and DAS Choreography students will share their work.
June 16–17: The first-year DAS Theatre students will share the outcome of their experimentations in short works.
September: DAS Choreography hosts informal studio showings from students beginning their second year. Want to stay informed? Send an email to: daschoreography [​at​]

About DAS Graduate School
DAS Graduate School was established in 2016 by the Academy of Theatre and Dance in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Theatre (previously DasArts – Master of Theatre), DAS Choreography (previously Amsterdam Master of Choreography) and DAS Research (previously Performing Arts in Transition research group) have joined forces to invest in the further development of education and research. The school is based in a recently renovated building in Amsterdam with a broad range of facilities, and the heart of the building functions as an open and welcoming locale for gatherings and meetings between the arts, science, education and society.
