Dramaturgical Analysis. A Relational Approach

In this contribution Groot Nibbelink and Merx present a relational approach to dramaturgical analysis, in which they distinguish acts of composition, the address to the spectator, and the immanent context as key elements in any performance event. These components as such are not necessarily new, yet they are not always as equally integrated as they suggest. This is also a text about the methodology of dramaturgical analysis, as it offers a set of tools to do so, and actively reflects on the suggested approach.
