A Theory of Dramaturgy

A Theory of Dramaturgy explains how to approach the values, strategies, and theories that are essential to understanding arts and media, and investigates what art should do in the current world. This book defines concepts and combines arguments into a coherent dramaturgical theory. This dramaturgical theory is clarified by a systematic structuralist approach supported by an operative systems theory. This is a wide-ranging theory with historical and contemporary perspectives on dramaturgy.
