Seeing Between the Lines Dramaturgy Workshop

The dramaturg's job is to read between the lines and enhance a script with specificity and accuracy. This 1-night workshop will teach you to watch and read a play from the perspective of a dramaturg.

Instructor: Ken Cerniglia (Dramaturg and Literary Manager, Disney Theatrical Group)
Wednesday, February 6
6:30pm – 9:30pm

This workshop might be for you if:
  • You would like the ability to translate what you see on stage to your own work. 
  • You are a theater artist seeking to refine your analytical skills when talking about live theater. 
  • You are a theater lover who would like a new perspective on what you see.
In this workshop you will:
  • Watch a performance of the Primary Stages production of God Said This by Leah Nanako Winkler prior to the class date. (Tickets will be provided at no additional cost.) 
  • Meet with your class after viewing the production. Ken will facilitate a class discussion about the production, exploring the questions of why this play, in this place, at this time. 
  • Discuss what it means to be a dramaturg, what dramaturgical inquiry is, and how you can incorporate dramaturgical practice into your work no matter your role in a production. 
By the end of this workshop you will:
  • Have a better understanding of the role of a dramaturg and dramaturgy in any play. 
  • Be able to bring dramaturgy into your work as a writer, actor, or director. 
  • Be equipped to see any production with a more discerning eye.
