Time Between Dog and Wolf
We acquire the facility to see in the first days of infancy. Most people have no memory of this experience; it just happens. Perhaps we emulate this moment every day when we wake up after sleeping, when the world reappears to our visual consciousness. Perhaps we start seeing again many times during the day, after the frequent occasions when our brain is momentarily distracted.
“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled.”
– John Berger
We now have an opportunity to consider ‘proposals for seeing’ by our eight graduating students. After two years of study and inquiry into their specific artistic practice, a period of close reading and of applying various lenses, they will be showing work that invites new ways of seeing. An invitation to watch our seeing happening, in the space between what can and cannot be discerned. This is ‘the time between dog and wolf’, as they say in French, when a dog could be a wolf and a wolf could be a dog. A space where many things are still possible, and we become aware of seeing itself.
We are happy to invite you to discover these ‘proposals for seeing’ with us.

DAS Graduate School was established in 2016 by the Academy of Theatre and Dance to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof.
DAS Theatre (previous: DasArts – Master of Theatre), DAS Choreography (previous: Amsterdam Master of Choreography) and DAS Research (previous: Performing Arts in Transition research group) have joined forces to invest in the further development of education and research. It is based in a recently renovated building with a broad range of facilities, and the heart of the building functions as an open and welcoming locale for gatherings and meetings between the arts, science, education and society.
