February meeting: The Concept of Dramaturgy Through a Radical Perspective

The February 18 meeting of Playwrights Ink will include a presentation from Viviane Juguero, visiting scholar at UW-Madison:

THE CONCEPT OF DRAMATURGY THROUGH A RADICAL PERSPECTIVE
Dramaturgy is a complex and controversial concept and has been used in different senses like as a synonym for drama, the studies about plays, or its metaphorical use in social sciences. Concerning the creation of performing arts itself, the profusing of genres in contemporary arts sometimes makes difficult to understand what is dramaturgy which complicates the discussions about this specific knowledge. In this meeting, Viviane Juguero will talk about the concept of dramaturgy from a radical perspective, mentioning its specific role in social life and her artistic conception that understands dramaturgy both in a strict sense (literary creations of tabular texts) and in a broad sense (the discourse of the scene). The intention is to share the idea with playwrights, dramatists (as she perceives differences between these concepts), dramaturgs, and everybody interested in the theme.
