Introduction

The Danish National School of Performing Arts (DASPA) proposed a Nordic choreographic network for MA studies in 2017. The Nordic Choreographic Platform (NCP) was soon founded and established among MA Programme in Choreography at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, Danish National School of Performing Arts (DASPA), Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHIO) and Stockholm University of the Arts. The is network funded by Nordplus based on annual applications.

The platform (NCP) aims to enable an international study environment. It broadens students’ professional network of colleagues and production venues, to help the students to integrate into the field after their graduation.

Studies associated with the platform include exploring different discourses of pedagogy of choreography and artistic research. In addition to this, the students may take part in Nordic events in the field, such as festivals or seminars, and learn to understand the similarities and differences between discourses and contexts.
