There is a growing interest in 'dramaturgy' as a critical concept and as a practical process. Outlining different perspectives on the terms 'dramaturgy' and 'the dramaturg', this book introduces both concept and practice to those encountering the subject for the first time. "Dramaturgy and Performance" takes a broad view and extends the focus beyond writer development to examine production dramaturgy and devising processes. Using case studies drawn from contemporary practice and suggesting areas of further study, the authors provide a strong insight into contemporary debates and new directions for the future.
