A Dramaturgy of the Body

Despite the role of the dramaturg as a mediator between theory and practice, the structure, that forms the basis of the dramaturgical practice, seems to remain twofold. This divide refers to the metaphysical distinction between body and mind, but is it not possible for the two directions to intersect? Christel Stalpaert looks at several contemporary Belgian performances where performers become ‘scientists’ and vice versa.
