DAS Theatre is a full-time, two-year residential Master of Art programme for research-based artistic and curatorial practices in the field of theatre. It develops in the form of a creative laboratory for international professionals in the performing arts. As a postgraduate school, DAS Theatre focuses on knowledge generation rather than knowledge transmission. While reinforcing the connections between arts education, research and production, DAS Theatre’s core values revolve around making space for art, including forms that we do not know yet.

About DAS Theatre
How can we as artists, curators, thinkers and educators engage imaginatively with the philosophical, social and political issues that confront us? How can art formulate hypotheses about our present and future entanglements? By providing conditions for research and work, DAS Theatre supports artists and curators in their attempt to re-think, or to even radically re-imagine forms, aesthetics, practices and ethics, thereby widening the understanding of what theatre is, and envisioning the theatre(s) of the future.

Here, individual trajectories benefit from a community of peers, tutors and advisors, and a broad international network. Participants engage critically with artistic and curatorial practices that may be radically different from their own, which serves the purpose of feeding their work and to reinforcing their artistic position. International guests fuel a permeable curriculum, while thematic blocks bring intensive educational programmes around relevant topics for the theatre field.

DAS Theatre embraces the wide range of practices covered by the term theatre. The programme pursues an active practice of different aesthetics, tools, dramaturgical approaches and genres. The programme welcomes artists (directors, performance makers, performers, dramaturgs...) and curators who seek to expand their fields.

About DAS Graduate School

DAS Graduate School was established in 2016 by the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) inside the Amsterdam Academy of Theatre and Dance (ATD) in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Theatre, DAS Choreography, DAS Creative Producing and DAS Research, have joined forces together in order to invest in the further development of education and research in Amsterdam as much as on a broader international horizon. The school is based as an open and porous centre for gatherings and encounters between the arts, science, education and society.
