“Last night I woke up with someone squeezing my hand. It was my other hand”
William S.Burroughs – Naked Lunch
When there is no dramaturg, we might find ourselves employing dramaturgical strategies to further the clarity of our own work. The following text is intended as a useful list for dramaturgs, or those who wish to employ dramaturgical thinking within their process. In essence it doesn’t offer anything new, but through articulating possible approaches it invites the reader to consider further approaches of looking, listening, reading and engaging in a process.
This is continuation of tasks set by Marin Hargreaves offered us over the TEST weekend. A invitation for a co-lecture (everybodystoolbox.net) and to write lists, spells and manifestos; taking inspiration from Richard Serra, Mierle Laderman Ukeles and AA Bronson and Linda Stupart, respectively.
