The MA Performance Studies is one of the international programmes of the Universität Hamburg. Performance Studies cooperates with numerous international partners. Due to the close collaboration with national and international performance and live art institutions and various activities (e.g. national and international conferences, congresses, symposia, lectures, summer schools, theatre camps), the students get in touch with international artists, scientists, organisers and curators. The artistic guest professorships, starting each winter term (e.g. Ivana Müller, Laurent Chétouane, Jonathan Burows, Boris Charmatz, Tim Etchells, Rimini Protokoll, Eszter Salamon, Thomas Lehmen, DEUFERT&PLISCHKE), offer students the chance to work with renowned artists.
In addition, an international network of universities and art academies offering similar programmes is being established. The network facilitates the exchange for students and lecturers. Further cooperation with international universities include exchange programmes for students and teaching staff, participation in profiled courses, joint teaching and research projects as well as artistic and scientific events.
The MA Performance Studies holds ERASMUS partnerships with the
- University of Dance and Circus, Schweden (MA New Performative Practices, MA Choreography, MA Dance Education)
- University of Exeter, England (MA Theatre Practice)
