The University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki)

Call for Applications: MA in Live Art and Performance Studies

The University of the Arts Helsinki’s Theatre Academy welcomes applications for the master’s programme in Live Art and Performance Studies.

Live Art and Performance Studies (LAPS) is a full-time, research-preparatory, two-year master’s programme in English that uniquely combines contemporary performance and live art practices with performance studies, visual cultures and artistic research.

The LAPS master’s programme combines critical thinking with experimentation in artistic work and artistic research. The programme empowers its students to develop and activate new knowledge in practice and theory. LAPS is one of the first, and still one of the very few master’s programmes in the world that combines performance studies and practice of live art & performance art.

LAPS is designed for students that already have foundation in live art, performance art, or they work in the multidisciplinary field of contemporary art, but want to develop their research skills alongside their artistic practice.

The programme is equally designed for those who have already carried out research in another field in the humanities or sciences, but want to focus more on e.g. embodied practices or performative research.

Professionals from a wide range of fields, including people from the non-academic or activist backgrounds, are encouraged to apply.

We welcome applications between 7–20 January 2021 (ending at 3pm local Finnish time on the last day). The programme is open to international students and is tuition free for EU / EEA students.
