THE UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS | SCHOOL OF DANCE
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA USA
new internationally-focused mfa program
including both year and low residency cohorts
summer 2018 :: residencies will be held in France including Paris and Montpellier
The University of the Arts in Philadelphia sets in motion a new Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program in Dance that extends the context of learning from the studio, theater and classroom to the international festival environment as a space for learning. Each summer the program departs from the traditional semester format by focusing instead on international residencies, workshops, and symposia that foster critical conversations about the meanings, purposes, and potentialities of dance and performance.
Faculty, affiliated artists, and guest lecturers represent an internationally diverse array of approaches to theorizing and practicing embodied knowledge in relation to citizenship and art-making.
