DOCH's Summer School Residency, 7,5 credits

DOCH's Summer School Residency is what it sounds like - a mix between a course and a residency. DOCH which is normally empty during summers will be transformed into a camp of performance work making.

You as a student will be accompanied during the process, from artistic idea to presentation, as well as having lot of time for self- organization. In the end of the course there will be a public presentation window. The course is intended for dance artists and performing arts artists who are starting to make performative works.

The course runs in parallell with the course Methods and forms of writing in relation to artistic practices. The courses will run so that it is easy to take both of them. Students are encouraged to take both courses as a way to develop an artistic work alongside the development of its writing practice. But the course DOCH's Summer School Residency can also be taken independently.

Entry requirements
General entry requirement for studies at the first cycle with exemption for Swedish 1, 2, 3 and English 6.
