Exerce master degree 2018/2019

Beginning of the 6th group of students-artists-researchers

Since October 2016, two distinct groups of students-artists-researchers, one starting its first year and the other one already in its second year are working at the Centre chorégraphique.

Seven years after the start of the Master program, the smaller annual student enrollment seeks to strengthen individual research, expand periods of mobility supporting research and professional opportunities, and develop pedagogical experimentations.

Each year revolves around a specific pedagogical program and periods of joined time between the M1 and M2 students.

The two groups' cohabitation allows for multiple collaborations among students, whether as part of the program or on a more spontaneous basis. It also provides opportunities for experimenting different forms of knowledge sharing, as well as internal tutoring practices between the two groups.

The Master exerce guides future research-based artists by exploring the choreographic field within its vast possibilities of conception, making, distribution and public showings. With its curriculum, its intention is to stimulate a state of research which can lead to the making and drafting of a singular choreographic project.

This state of research translates into a state of readiness. It is nurtured by suggested experimentations within the educational program and by exerce group's shared issues and experiences. This exerce group, regarded as a resource, is comprised of students-artists-researchers, the teaching, artistic and academic team, as well as the guest artists and guest researchers. Each one of them contributes and welcomes inputs from all other members, thus favoring a free-flowing and reciprocity principle.

This state of research unfolds by means of experimentation. Because its intention is to explore ways a choreographer nowadays works and researches, it aims at investigating everyone's artistic, educational representations and expectations. It continuously brings back into play and widens methodological tools that enrich personal explorations.

This state of research reaches out. Dance pieces, performances, dissertation, writings, conference, knowledge sharing... are as many media or formats with which this state of research presents and displays itself to the public. It reflects on ways each student-artist-researcher chooses to convey and unfolds his/her two years' research's specificity.

This state of research has a place. It spreads out in close connection to Christian Rizzo's global project at the ICI — centre chorégraphique national de Montpellier-Languedoc-Roussillon. With its porous nature it experiments with other fields of contemporary thoughts. In that sense this state of research has a place thanks to which the student-artist-researcher fits into the exerce group and beyond, on an artistic and social level
