On Dramaturgy (2009)

A coaching project at Impulstanz Vienna

Dramaturgy deals with three main questions:
1. How does the artist transform his/her concept into practice?
2. What aesthetic strategies does the artist make use of in the art work?
3. How does the art work communicate to the audience?

Thus, in this week we took an active look at the theatre-machine and its productive conditions of creating moving bodies in time and space. Since practice and theory melt in this Coaching Project, the participants are asked to share their working process. Next to discussing and analysing their proposals, participants  worked on their practice in the course of the week. Shows of the festival were discussed and choreographers of ImPulsTanz were invited on a daily basis to join the group.
