Choreomundus is an Erasmus Mundus programme that investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as intangible cultural heritage. To apply, please visit the website.
It is offered by a consortium of four universities (in Norway, France, Hungary and the UK) recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance. The Choreomundus programme will help you make sense of intangible heritage within the postcolonial, culturally diverse world of the 21st century. The programme will help you develop an appreciation of dance that is comparative, crosscultural, applied and embodied.
The universities that participate in this programme are: the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim (NTNU) as the coordinating institution; Plaise Pascal University (UBP), Clermont-Ferrand, France; Scientific University of Szeged, Hungary; University of Roehampton, UK, in connection with their groundbreaking Masters in ethnochoreology/dance anthropology, led respectively by Professors Egil Bakka, Georgiana Wierre-Gore, László Felföldi, and Andrée Grau.
Roehampton's Dance Department is home to the internationally-recognised Centre for Dance Research, which foregrounds the research of dance as cultural and artistic expression beyond, and including, theatre performance. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international invited guests, the centre supports a compelling research culture.
We also have excellent links with dance companies and creative organisations. In easy reach of London's vibrant dance scene, the campus has superb studios and a state-of-the-art theatre for dance students.
