writing with public spaces
Welcome to the second week of this MOOC, developed with critic and playwright Marie Reverdy. You’ll discover what Dramaturgy can be defined as the process of creating artistic content and adapting it for the stage. Dramaturgy organises the link between what the artist wants to express, the way it is expressed and the context chosen to do it. Just like in a musical score, each component can become major or minor. The place of each of these components requires fine-tuning dependent on the desired meaning and effect. Using public space as a place for artistic creation and dissemination raises its own specific dramaturgical issues. Unlike the theatre, the performance takes place in spaces full of meaning, movements and sounds that interact with the work. These interferences fundamentally... is and how writers can work with the spaces where they create. First, let’s start with Jean-Sébastien’s introduction.
