Profile and vision
The artistic research and development work driven by the doctoral students, teachers, postdoc and senior researchers at Malmö Theatre Academy have a common goal: we aim at conducting research in performing arts, and to propose new knowledge, forms, methods and techniques, through which performing arts would better meet the needs and hopes of our times.
We want to create an dynamic academic milieu, where artistic creation, academic research and education feed each other in a critical dialogue, where new knowledge is born out of focused and patient collaborations, and where people committed to the research in performing arts can meet on an equal basis and feel welcome.
In the Research collegium, the doctoral training takes place in a peer community together with postdoctoral and senior researchers. The courses, seminars and practicums are programmed and designed together to serve the needs of the doctoral projects conducted. Two of our doctoral students currently perform their studies as part of Lund University Agenda 2030 Graduate school, an interdisciplinary doctoral program in sustainable development.
