MA Choreography and Professional Practice - University of ChichesterProfessional Development
1 September - 2 NovemberWe are embarking on delivering on our first MA postgraduate qualification. The MA Choreography and Professional Practice course starts at the University of Chichester in September 2014. The programme has been designed and will be delivered by University of Chichester in partnership with South East Dance, enabling students to engage with us as a national dance development organisation and access a wide range of events, expertise, networking and professional development opportunities delivered both on and off campus.
The practice-based course explores choreographic methods and approaches and encourages students to position themselves as artists within the U.K and European contemporary dance scene. The course includes compulsory modules: Choreographic Practices, Artist as Producer and Dissertation all of which can be practically based allowing you to explore choreographic ideas and interests through the planning, making and performing of new dance work. Additional, optional modules include: Dance Technique, Writing for Performance, New Media and Performance Practices.
FACE TO FACE: CONFERENCEProfessional Development
The future of dance: can we afford to take risks?
The Dance Strategy Group presents: Face to Face 2014 on Friday 7 November at Sadler's Wells, London
Dance Strategy Group is a collection of people committed to working together to share ideas and drive forward the development of dance in the South East. That may make it sound as though we've got it all worked out. We haven't.
We want to explore our ideas, interrogate tough questions and collectively work out how we can make a change.
Face to Face is a biennial gathering of people working in or with dance. We've run it three times before, and this time we're doing things differently. We will be meeting for one day in November when Improbable will facilitate an Open Space event. We will think, talk, work and share ideas. Most importantly we will all take responsibility for driving the conversations in the way that each of us feels is important, and we will commit to taking action, individually and together.
If we are going to make significant and lasting changes, we've got to do some radical thinking and share the creative expertise among us. This is our chance to embrace the power of thinking and working together – one enormous melting pot of thoughts, perspectives, inspiration, entrepreneurship and innovation...
On the day, we will be making a tangible record - a big report - of where we are now and where we want to go, of what we need to do collectively and what we can do individually. This will be created there and then by everyone who is there and sent out so that we can all begin putting conversations into action.
Whether you are a dance lecturer or teacher, a programmer or producer, an artist struggling to get programmed, a passionate audience member, a student wondering which way to go next, a local authority arts officer facing further cuts or someone who just wants to get involved – join the conversation.
It is time to make a change. Do you want to be a part of it?
Join us via Twitter using the hashtag #facetoface14 to contribute to the conversation and find out the key themes emerging from the day.
