1/25/20188:00 AM9:15 AMExhibit A4Dramaturgy Case StudiesProduction dramaturgy can be contextualized as a significant and imaginative resource for the actor, director, designer, and audience. When used to educate and immerse actors in a play's historical, cultural, social, political, and theatrical position, dramaturgy becomes the director's best friend. Dr. SoRelle served as the annual ATHE Dramaturgy competition chair for 20 years and has assessed the work of undergraduates and graduates from the US and Canada in adjudication conferences with dozens of professional dramaturgs and literary managers at major American and Canadian theatres. In this workshop you will gain access to some model dramaturgical case studies--presented with permission of the "turgs," many of whom are now working professionals--and also learn about what makes a winning dramaturgical portfolio .

We’re hoping to use this session (I’ve had at least a dozen educators who will be at the conference express interest already) as a starting point for this process, to decide on the best avenues for moving forward, and to hopefully interact with other teachers who are not yet aware of our goals.HS Teachers, MS Teachers, Administrators, Higher Education, K-12 Teachers, EveryoneTechnical Theatre Educators
