ADN Re/View Critical Responses & Discussion





ADN Re/View (Vol. 1)

MODERATOR-PROVOCATEUR: CORRIE TAN

“Dramaturgy – both as a theory and a practice – is always imbricated in a network of relations. It enables and arises from collaboration, contestation and disruption.” – Peter Eckersall (2016)

The first issue of ADN Re/View (Vol.1) charts some of the key ideas that emerged and circulated about dramaturgy and dramaturging in Asia. Featuring practitioner-dramaturgs Peter Eckersall, Ness Roque and Nanako Nakajima, and led by Corrie Tan as provocateur-moderator, the online discussion will unpack key themes of tracing Asian dramaturgy, mapping the terrain and dramaturging the ‘inter’.

ADN Re/View (Vol. 2)  

MODERATOR-PROVOCATEUR: KOK HENG LEUN

Dramaturgy should be viewed as an adaptive process that is able to respond to place, people and use.” – Janet Pillai

With the wide-ranging curiosities relating to dramaturgy and its expanded notions, "Vol. 2" of the ADN Re/View E-zine series considers how ‘tracing’ offers a frame to work with when making sense of how dramaturgy affects our lives – in performance-making and in the everyday.
 
Whether the discussion is about history, tradition, gender, sexuality or race, the performance work that is referred to by varied ADN presenters provides a resource from which they extrapolate or theorise ideas that matter to them. How does one’s subjective experience shape the dramaturgical process in theatre and in life?
 
In this online roundtable discussion, practitioner-dramaturgs Gee Imaan Semmalar, Janice Poon, Helly Minarti and led by provocateur-moderator Kok Heng Leun, will respond to and unpack key points brought up in Vol. 2.

ADN Re/View (Vol. 3)

MODERATOR-PROVOCATEUR: CHARLENE RAJENDRAN

The third and final volume of ADN Re/View plays with the notion of framing in dramaturgical thinking and the work of a dramaturg. A recurring challenge for a dramaturg, as with an artist, is to work out what really needs to be done and how best to do this. Varied options may emerge as to the kinds of frames and framing mechanisms that would best serve the work, and shaping the frames is an aspect of artistry that may not always be noticed.

Rounding up the ADN Re/View series of e-publications, dramaturgs Janet Pillai and David Pledger are invited to respond to the questions and themes arising from Vol. 3, Framing, as well as previous volumes - Vol. 1, Mapping and Vol. 2, Tracing. Facilitated by Charlene Rajendran, the conversation will also look at their thoughts on dramaturgy and dramaturgs in the current climate.
