Dramaturgy in the Making with Katalin Trencsényi, Peter Eckersall, Bertie Ferdman, May 18th 2017
This video is the celebration of the publication Dramaturgy in the Making: A User’s Guide for Theatre Practitioners by Katalin Trencsényi, published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama in 2015. Trencsényi’s research maps contemporary dramaturgical practices in various settings of theatre-making and dance to reveal the different ways that dramaturgs work today. It provides a thorough survey of three major areas of practice—institutional dramaturgy, production dramaturgy and dance dramaturgy—with each illustrated through a range of case studies that illuminate methodology and which will assist practitioners in developing their own “dramaturgical toolbox.” The book provides a detailed and precise insight into the dramaturgical processes at organizations such as the Akram Khan Company, les ballets C de la B (Ghent), the National Theatre and the Royal Court (London), the Schaubühne (Berlin) and The Sundance Institute Theatre Lab (Utah), among others. In the video Katalin Trenscéyi, Peter Eckersall and Bertie Ferdman speak about this topic of contemporary dramaturgical practices each in relation to their own knowledge on dramaturgy.
