The professional Master's programme International Dramaturgy aims to provide
students with different dramaturgical skills and competencies to be adapted to
the preparation and production of a performance. This includes research,
analysis, interpretation and adaptation skills.
The focus of the programme is on practices of cultural translation,
cross-cultural mediation and curation. Graduates are able to research the
transformations of the profession and functions of the dramaturge in an
international context and through transnational collaborations.
Graduates in the International Dramaturgy Programme will be in a position to
work in diverse cultural, artistic and/or academic sectors. This ranges from a
dramaturgical position in theatre and performance companies and organisations,
to being art critics or cultural commentators, to programming and coordinating
functions or academic research.
Graduates will ideally be suited for careers wherein they serve as a bridge
between theory and practice, complementing artistic and cultural processes and
initiatives, as well as facilitating meaningful collaborations and exchanges
across the world.
Given the growing demand for cultural professionals with the skills of
working in transnational and multilingual settings, the programme offers a
qualification that is grounded in theatre and performance, but with a wide
applicability in other domains of the arts and culture.
