Working in an international cultural and artistic sphere 

Today, theatre and performance practice has increasingly moved towards international and intercultural collaborations, with festivals and performance venues hosting artists and groups from across the world. Dramaturges are therefore required to historicise, interpret and translate across a broad range of cultural and artistic spheres. They are expected to demonstrate practical as well as theoretical skills to critically engage the potentials of encounters within cross-cultural performance production contexts.

Students of this Master’s programme receive training in those aspects of cultural interpretation, adaptation and mediation that are essential to working in a wide range of international, cross-cultural contexts, whether in experimental small-scale production processes or in international theatre and performance venues and groups.

The English taught Master's programme International Dramaturgy has been developed in reaction to the internationalisation of the professional field and handles accordingly as its main objective the formation of internationally operating dramaturges.
