In an ever-changing landscape of making creative work dramaturgy presents itself as a fundamental practice for successful collaborative work – Asian Dramaturgs’ Network Inaugural Symposium in Singapore.
Across the performing arts, spectrum dramaturgs challenge directors, their vision, and concepts as well as creative processes supporting a framework that enables discovery and inquiry into the art forms.
‘ MAPPING OUT, IN & ABOUT invites artists and arts practitioners to come together for a rich exchange of dramaturgical knowledge, ideas, and embodied experiences. This event marks the launch of the Asian Dramaturgs’ Network (ADN), a collective of Asian-based dramaturgs from the region’
