Directing of Devised and Object theatre aims to provide students with the space to explore new ways of creating and doing contemporary performance. The program focuses on research and development of materials, creating specific performance structures, and proposes new ways for the audience to perceive/experience the performance. Focus on objects and other material aspects of performance tend to ground the students in researching the existing material and view it not only as something to be used in the performance but something to be explored.

Students will have the opportunity to encounter a large variety of approaches to contemporary performance (teachers and artist workshops) to understand the different methods of contemporary performance. Furthermore, students will be guided over the 4 semesters to develop their own performative language, strategies, and poetics – that together form one unified research. Students will be tutored in such a way to be able to formulate their own interests, strengths, and weaknesses resulting in performative research and performances. Students are further invited to use theory as a strong inspirational and supportive element of their research and to intertwine practice and theory. Further students will be taught to perform, make space, use material as well as basic strategies of production to perform a multiplicity of functions and thus survive the circumstances of the independent theatre.
