This Masters course has been designed in collaboration with two key institutions in the field of artistic creation and contemporary artistic reflection:
Catholic University of Louvain
Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. Created over four decades ago, the Centre for Theatrical Studies at this university is one of the key European venues for analysis of theatrical events from an interdisciplinary perspective. Its studies of the language from which theatre today is constructed constitute one of the most interesting contributions to the dialogue between critical discourse and contemporary stage practice.
Art College of the University of Coímbra
Colégio das Artes da Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal. Part of the University of Coimbra, this college facilitates the processes of study and creativity of contemporary artists from various disciplines within the field of university research, thus enabling those creative artists interested in research to be able to do their dissertations and/or doctoral theses by drawing on their own artistic projects.
Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Coimbra
Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Coimbra, FLUC. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is one of the eight faculties of the University of Coimbra, which is considered to be the oldest of the Portuguese-speaking universities and one of the most ancient universities in Europe. It offers degrees in Archaeology and History, Information Sciences, Archives and Librarianship, Artistic and Classical Studies, Philosophy, Geography and History, Journalism, Art History, European Studies and Modern Languages. Its organisational structure includes various research centres and it offers a wide range of activities such as conferences, masterclasses, congresses and presentations.
Other collaborating organisations: network of partnerships
One of the distinctive aspects of the Masters is its network of partner organisations. The Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático de Castilla y León (ESADCYL) has organised a wide network of partnerships with some of the most prestigious cultural institutions of Castilla y León and other communities. Their field of activity is in line with the Masters curriculum design, the nature of the study programme and its objectives, providing the students with an interdisciplinary perspective open to different paradigms or artistic languages. This network includes festivals of contemporary creative arts, centres for exhibiting performing arts, production areas, cultural foundations, artistic events, multidisciplinary spaces and centres of choreographic creation.
