you are working in the performing arts and want to start an artistic research in a professional research environment, free from production constraints,
if the concepts of performativity or/and scenography are (relatively) new to you and you want to explore them in depth,
a.pass (advanced performance and scenography studies) can offer you a one year post master program in which you develop your performative or scenographic research project. In a context of self-education and collaboration you create a personal trajectory through workshops, individual mentoring and interaction with the other participants. At the end of this period, you present and communicate your research.
the post master programs, a.pass invites artists and theoreticians – possibly engaged in a PhD in the Arts - to develop independent artistic and transdisciplinary projects producing knowledge and tools relating to the key issues of the a.pass programs.

Research in the a.pass context is artistic research that aspires a broader foundation and aim than the development of an individual project by one artist. In other words researchers in the a.s environment are not concentrated on the conception and the production of artworks (although this can be unmistakably a part of their research trajectory) but on a questioning that transcends an individual practice. At the end of their research year they create a format to communicate their research.

The a.pass context is designed to give the possibility to develop as an independent and critical researcher in fertile circumstances and provides the context that helps to organize a research in an optimal way. Participants of a.s manage their own research in continuous interaction with the other participants and, by doing so, engage in the organization of the curriculum.

a.pass operates as an open collective. A group of people develop and share their research practice in such way that the dynamics of producing and sharing knowledge occurs within the group. They share the responsibility for the development of formats for exchange, and they constantly consider on how to communicate their research within a.pass and to the outside world.

The a.s program is a 12-month program consisting of three blocks of four months. The first three months of each block take place within the organized collective research environment. Participants develop their personal trajectory in a constant communication with the other participants and co-ordinators, through participation in workshops, with feed-back from dedicated mentors and through the choice of personal mentors. The last month of each block is open for the further individual development of the research project.
