Who needs a Dramaturg?
The workshop offers practical tools and exercises to reflect upon, to evaluate and eventually to transform and improve the creative process. We will focus on perception (what to look for), articulation (how to express oneself best in order to get what one is looking for) and interdisciplinary practices.
