Ten prominent dramaturg-scholars from three continents discuss complex dramaturgical approaches and advance proposals that reset notions of agency in contemporary dance creation. By drawing upon professional experience, cognitive and poststructuralist theory, and the work of international dance artists, they depart from tropes of anxiety in the existing discourse and present dramaturgy as a radically relational practice.

Seen through their lenses, dance dramaturgy is not the territory of a dramaturg with privileged knowledge about composition; it is driven by artistic inquiry, distributed among collaborating artists, embedded in improvisation tasks, or weaved through layers of audience engagement. In turn, the dramaturg becomes an engaged and skilful facilitator of dramaturgical awareness who traces artistic inquiries and ways of working across a broad spectrum of projects and artists.

This collection extends an invitation to complicate and advance key notions of dance dramaturgy and provides a rich source for dance and devising artists looking to examine and develop approaches to creation.

About the Author:

Pil Hansen is an Assistant Professor in Dance and Drama at the University of Calgary, Canada, and dramaturg of Vertical City Performance and Kaeja d'Dance. Her research results and methods in cognitive performance studies and dramaturgy have been published widely.

Darcey Callison is a choreographer and Associate Professor in Dramaturgy and Choreography at York University, Canada. His research mobilizes cultural studies, Authentic Movement, and postmodern dance to examine contemporary and historical expressions of gender.

Review:

“The book is a dynamic and engaging ‘performance lab’ for dramaturgs, dancers, and choreographers interested in the field of dance dramaturgy. ... There is little doubt that Hansen and Callison have curated an anthology that will be a touchstone for our field.” (Jess Applebaum, Dance Research Journal, Vol. 49 (3), December, 2017)

“The collection includes nine compelling essays and an overview from Hansen that serves to outline the (fuzzy, porous, kinetic) contours of dance dramaturgy in the twenty-first century. The essays describe the dance dramaturg using various theoretical and practical models practiced by the authors. Dance Dramaturgy, like most essay collections, necessarily offers breadth, touching down rather than diving deep into its subject ... . This study offers much to consider for scholars, practitioners, and educators alike.” (Ariel Nereson, Theatre Journal, Vol. 69 (1), March, 2017)
