New: Professional Master in International Dramaturgy (MID), University of Amsterdam

27 January, 2015

The MA in International Dramaturgy is a pioneering new study programme geared at training future generations of dramaturges who will work across cultural, linguistic, social or national boundaries. 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 historicize, 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 Professional Master in International Dramaturgy is a one and a half year inter-national program and is part of the theatre studies department at the UvA. Successful completion leads to the title Master of Arts (MA).
