This selective 18-month Master's programme trains future generations of dramaturges to work in theatrical settings across cultural, linguistic, social and national boundaries. You will combine rigorous academic coursework with an internship in the Netherlands or abroad to help you develop your practical dramaturgical skills.
The theatre and performance practice of today is increasingly characterised by international and intercultural collaborations. Taking the stage at festivals and performance venues, where artists and groups come together from across the world, today's dramaturges are required to historicise, interpret and translate theatrical processes across a broad range of cultural and artistic spheres. During this Master's programme in International Dramaturgy, you will develop practical as well as theoretical skills to engage with these new cross-cultural performance contexts. The programme offers in-depth training in cultural translation, adaptation and mediation for a wealth of 21st-century international performance practices.
