Music, Theatre and Performance Studies

This Master's programme offers a rich field of study which encompasses both emergent and historically established practices in music and the performing arts.

We highlight those phenomena which most impact the organization, experience, and creative  potential of musical and theatre makers and audiences in the twentieth and twenty first  centuries. MA students examine the current constitution of musical and  theatrical organizations, as well as the impact of broader processes such as  globalization, digitalization, urbanization, festivalisation, and mobility upon  expanding forms of creativity. Because humans continue to shape creative  experience within cultural fields, this specialisation aims to uncover how music and  theatre remain relevant for understanding broader relations between culture, society,  and the arts.

We examine these and other processes in historical contexts and in our musical and  theatrical present, where economic crisis in recording and performing industries has  led to vast rearrangements of musical and theatrical labour and changing  conceptions of the public sphere. Because this program highlights the complexity of  the contemporary popular music, art music, and theatre professional worlds, students enter arts  professions with specialised knowledge and skills, which ensure that they are highly  employable.

This master's track suits students who have studied one of the arts disciplines (dance, music, theater, film, literature, performance art) or arts-related perspectives (media studies, cultural studies, art history, arts sociology, arts philosophy) in their Bachelor programme.
