Creative Performance Lab

Creative Performance Lab (CPL) is a two-year master profile for students who aim to develop and perform their own interdisciplinary productions. Through intensive collaboration within a team of students you create several performances in both master years, crossing the borders between disciplines such as music, theater, dance, video and live electronics. While your own principal subject serves as the basis, you are challenged to work in disciplines and artistic areas that may be new to you, and you are strongly encouraged to bring any skills you may have inside and outside the musical realm, such as improvising, acting, dancing, writing or videography. With the help of special guest coaches you explore such skills, bring them to an operational level and apply them to your productions.

An essential aspect of CPL is that the creative process takes place in a group setting. You learn to combine your own ideas with those of the others in the group, in order to develop a coherent and high-quality production. You support each other and offer constructive feedback. This way you create a unique product, resulting from the creative input of the entire group.
