The Bachelor programme in Circus at DOCH uses the skills and the artistic traditions as a foundation on which to build high level technical and artistic competences in new practices. It offers knowledge about, and an understanding of, the many forms of expression in circus. It also initiates innovative processes in methods of working and of expressing oneself in close relationship to choreography and the performing arts. Upon graduating, the student can use his/her artistry to contribute to the development of the circus movement vocabulary and in turn may even perhaps redefine the art form itself.
In the BA programme, this is done on two levels simultaneously, first and foremost through the core group of discipline teachers who interact with the students on a daily basis throughout the duration of the programme, bringing a wealth of experience both technically and artistically through their unique pedagogical approaches. In conjunction with this, we establish strong and enduring collaborations with numerous individuals and networks of individuals both within the national and international circus arena. These teachers, prominent artists and researchers, are highly present in the student’s daily practice. Through this rich environment, the students are continuously given tools that facilitate the ability to relate to one’s own activities within an artistic and social context.... [-]
