The Rose Choreographic School is an experimental research and pedagogy
project. We support a cohort
of artists to explore their singular
enquiries and to collectively imagine a school
through which knowledges and practices can be developed and shared. There is no set curriculum or syllabus, and no predetermined outcome; the focus is on coming together as a community of artist researchers to discover the conditions we need for speculation and articulation.
We propose a postdisciplinary
approach to the question of the choreographic
and invite artists from all practices and inclinations for whom the concept of the choreographic
is a central concern.
Each cycle of the School lasts two years, during which we offer access to studio spaces, mentoring and a research budget. The Artistic Faculty
for this first cycle are Alesandra Seutin, Trajal Harrell and William Forsythe and they will invite engagement with their own research concerns and practices through workshops and seminars. There will be also a podcast series and regular onsite and online meetings to enable the cohort
to develop processes of critique and support.

We are also working in partnership with Goldsmiths, University of London to support a fully funded CHASE (Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England) collaborative doctoral award on “The four-plus Dimensional Materialities of the Choreographic”. Applications for the doctorate are via Goldsmiths, and the successful applicant will be based at both Goldsmiths and Rose Choreographic School. More information will be released soon.
