This MA is no longer on offer. The last edition took place in the 2022–2023 academic year.

The Master’s Degree in Performing Arts and Visual Culture provides a practical research setting to experiment and develop projects and critically debate, question and reflect upon the relationship between theory and practice. It constitutes a space for creators and researchers interested in developing new work strategies through collaboration.

By virtue of a broad and expanded consideration of performing arts, the MA fosters the collaboration and self-organisation of its participants, providing tools for the development of methodologies and critical theory discourse whilst also questioning, revealing and broadening the modes that currently generate meaning via a series of diverse formats such as laboratories, workshops, seminars and ongoing lecture groups, some of them developed with the patronage of the Banco Santander Foundation.

Its programme of transdisciplinary studies offers participants specific skills in their fields of work and research, facilitating processes of insertion in the artistic environment of the city and encouraging contact with artists, researchers, cultural managers and guest curators.

The course represents the ideal environment for people with experience or training in theatre, dance, action art, visual art, music, art history, humanities, cultural management and other related areas that are looking to join practical research projects in a collaborative setting.

More information is available on the MA's Spanish page.
