Sample text

The dramaturg’s longterm engagement with this work does, in particular, enhance her or his ability to trace these dynamics, engage collaborators in a discussion of how the dynamics work, and contribute questions, tasks, or strategies that heighten everyone’s dramaturgical awareness in the process. As a dance dramaturg I, too, do not wish to close this discussion with my conclusion. Instead I would like to extend an invitation to continue the process of thinking between voices on dramaturgy that this book attempts to facilitate.

Katherine Profeta and Thomas K. DeFrantz (dramaturg and African American dance scholar) have worked for almost two decades with the iconic African American choreographers Ralph Lemon and Donald Byrd. Both dramaturgs report on researching source materials and their historical/theoretical anchors, and on reflecting upon the relationship between these sources, the process of creation, and the world that the company shares with their audience. The same tasks feature in the Japanese dramaturg and scholar/performer of traditional Japanese Theatre Nanako Nakajima’s contribution to the contemporary American performance’s artist koosil-ja’s choreographic work.
