On November 10, we will open our doors to introduce you to the DAS master and research programmes. You are welcome to meet artistic directors, staff and students, get a taste of the practices of our peers by participating in workshops and join us for the performances of students and alumni in the evening.

Right in the middle of all of this, we will be organizing a conversation in the heart of our house with local and international guests. We will launch the latest volume of the challenging book series Performing Urgency: Empty Stages, Crowded Flats in the presence of Florian Malzacher, who is the editor of this volume, together with Joanna Warzsa. The book contains contributions about the ways curating and the staging of performances can be driven by investigations into the performative capacity to transform reality.

If you want to attend the Open Doors, please send us an email at dasgraduateschool [​at​]

Application & admission
For details about the admissions procedure, admission requirements and application deadlines for the two programmes, please click on the link for the programme you would like to apply to: DAS Theatre or DAS Choreography.

Studying at DAS Theatre
DAS Theatre offers one programme, one "dramaturgy of learning", for two profiles: theatre makers and curators. The dialogue between them instigates new ideas, approaches and practices. DAS Theatre students adopt appropriate methods to expand and deepen their practice. Although the focus is on individual development, our main educational strategies revolve around the learning potential of encounters. The application deadline for DAS Theatre is November 21, 2017.

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 of this non-residential master programme. In short, it offers space for creating conditions for deepening artistic practices. The application deadline for DAS Choreography is December 1, 2017.

DAS Graduate School
DAS Graduate School was established in 2016 by the Academy of Theatre and Dance (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Theatre, DAS Choreography and DAS Research have joined forces to invest in the further development of education and research. Currently a third master, DAS Creative Producing, is in development.

The school is based in a recently renovated building 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.
