Toward a Dramaturgical Sensibility: Landscape and Journey

What can we know? This study suggests that the attempt to know the dramaturgy of a play is little different from the attempt to know another person for whom we care. Toward a Dramaturgical Sensibility explores the interplay between the known and the unknown from two perspectives—landscape and journey. Part I (Landscape) explores notions of conversation, pleasure and pattern in relation to the dramaturgical and theatrical landscape. Part II (Journey) focuses on the case study of the rehearsal for Antony and Cleopatra at the Guthrie Theater in the fall of 2001 and winter of 2002.
