Conference 2019 (Singapore)
Dramaturgs work with choices and actions — the ones made by a creative team working on a performance, and their own in relation to how they intend to play their role(s), and what they hope to achieve.
To act with purpose and meaning, dramaturgs must be deeply interested in the human condition, using their knowledge, experience and relationships with performance and artists to produce particular affects and effects.
Dramaturgy and the Human Condition engages with key questions for the dramaturg in Asia navigating an increasingly complex world in need of critical action and speech. Over two days, dramaturgs, art-makers and observers from the region explore performance-making in relation to crucial concerns about being human, raising possible frameworks for responding to change and choice from an Asian perspective.
