The Malmö Theatre Academy has a high level of ambition and aims to be a leading education and research institution in the field of theatre, as well as a relevant and open institution in Malmö. We offer particularly promising and motivated students and researchers a clearly profiled and international environment, which prepares people for a challenging and variable professional career.
The artistic research highlights the combination of perspectives on artistic practice, artistic knowledge generation and artistic learning. The participation of doctoral students in the institution’s broad activities is an essential part of the development of the institution’s collective knowledge environment. In practice, this means that the doctoral student is to take part in the department’s meetings and actively contribute to knowledge development.
The Academy runs a PhD programme in theatre and has five doctoral students: playwright Annika Nyman, and director John Hanse, both admitted in 2016, and in dramaturgy Tanja Diers, Costume designer Charlotte Østergaard and director and theatre maker Steinunn Knuts Önnudottir, admitted in 2020.
