On the Literary Managers and Dramaturges of the Americas' website, Sarah Ollove, freelance dramaturge and member of LMDA writes that, Philip Himburg at Sundance likened a good dramaturge to a good dinner party host: someone who introduces people sure to be great friends, asks questions sure to engage folks in sparkling conversation, steps in to move the party along when it stalls, and steps back when everything's running smoothly. This is, by far, one of the most appropriate descriptions of a dramaturge ever written. As such, this WMSURE workshop will expand on this quote by exploring the concept of dramaturgy, the role of a dramaturge and what it means to be a good dinner party host as well as the dramaturges career (including professional associations). Students will also learn about current research opportunities (for THEA 411 practicum and/or program credit) for Spring 2013 under the direction of Prof. Green.Food will be provided.
