The term dramaturg can be referred to as the art or technique of dramatic composition and theatrical representation. Once a composition is made, by simply following it in certain format, one is able to perform a piece in a specific manner that gives out a clear message to audiences.
The texts addresses Brecht’s model in relation to writing, critiquing, evaluating and imagining a new future for theatre. With the advancement of this field, there is a lot to come and grow to even make this field better. It also focuses on a political stand which elaborates issues through a theatrical perspective. Passing on messages through theatre is on the rise and has a greater impact to people receiving the information. Moreover, making dramaturg into a dance context opens many possibilities of interpretation, and invites a greater spectrum of people interested in dance to involve themselves it in.
This term resonated with me in a unique perspective as I was able to imagine myself being a dramatist. Expressing myself through different types of dance forms such as Hip-Hop, Salsa, Breakdance and many more. It is fascinating how my body can adjust to the different forms of dance as each require a different feel and mood to it. For example, Salsa brings about a more sensual feeling to the audience whereas a dance genre like breakdance gives off a very rigid and firm vibe to an audience. Being able to manipulate such dances to present a certain feeling and mood I find unique.
So as I said in class, the keyword essay has to be deeply engaged with how the term operates in the assigned text – in this case it is Katherine Profeta’s, Dramaturgy in Motion. When I read this, there is no mention of any sources for the information you provide and I’m not sure how your conclusion relates to the dramaturgy of choreography — if Profeta discusses genres of dance, then you have to bring that up in the earlier paragraphs. Here if seems like you just riff on dance in general without engaging in the author’s argument. This doesn’t stand up as an engagement with scholarly ideas.
