The Politics of Dramaturgy

In this article, John Lutterbie discusses expanded definitions of politics to show how they force us to reevaluate the traditional idea of the dramaturg, and to suggest how this revision of the dramaturg’s role relates to the social and cultural politics of our time. An aspect of Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s discource on space is used to establish how the context in which dramaturgs work necessarily influences the production.
