In this workshop we will explore different dramaturgical strategies and structures needed in order to make a political action. We will examine further the dramaturgical and performative qualities of specific protests and other non-theatrical events. We will try to use the knowledge and the experience of individual dramaturgical practices and creative methodologies and apply it to a wider social context. The questions are: “What kind of political action do we propose and produce through our artistic practice? How can we use our skills to construct new types of social situations?”
The focus will be on the concept of social choreography (Andrew Hewitt). The participants will discuss the notion of public and private, the relation between politics and aesthetics.
The aim of the workshop is to make visible the position of the dramaturge as an artist and practitioner in the contemporary field of art and the dominant mode of production.
