Application

Next program: September 2021– June 2023

In 2011 the exerce program was turned into a Master and welcomed a new promotion of students every two years. From 2016, a new group of students is enrolled in the MA every year. The first and second year will then co-exist. A smaller number of students in each promotion will enhance individual research, facilitate exchanges, mobility and collaborations between the first and second year students. This dynamics of welcoming young artists each season will nourish and be nourished by the choreographic activities of research, creation and sharing that take place within ICI—CCN.

The goals of the master

MA exerce is intended for young artists willing to both develop and clarify the stakes around individual research in relation to contemporary choreographic creation as well as interacting with other fields of arts and thought.

The purpose is to promote students’ capacity of self-reliance so that they can create their own working methods, find the theoretical resources required as part of their practice, define specific forms of collaboration, stage presence and skills relevant to their work.

A vital part of the program is the sharing of their own personal research with other participants in the program. Students are invited to take part in joint projects, to provide advice, and support to other students’ work and to reflect on individual and collective forms of work in use in contemporary creation.

This program of study values understanding of aesthetic, social, economic and political issues of the various contexts from which art and art practices emerge from.

Various aspects of the 2018-2020 session:

— lab sessions combining theory and practice, run by artists, researchers and thinkers invited to share their questions and methdodolgies and to give feedback on the work of students;

— a regular practice to nourish and support physical availability, potential and imagination as resources to be activated in projects as a dance performer, author or researcher;

— time dedicated to individual research, with various coaching options (presence of an artist –researcher associated to the Ma for long-term supervision, artists regualrly invited as « coach » for personal research’ period, feedback systems generated by Exerce group, etc.);

— mobility outside of Montpellier for students access resources required as part of their research; gain a greater understanding of the contemporary art field and begin to situate their own work in relation to it.
