This subject connects students to industry professionals through a series of 10 master classes with leading dramaturgs, literary managers and writers. Each will outline their understanding of dramaturgy, and their approaches to their various roles and tasks as a dramaturg. This will run alongside a series of seminars with focused readings and discussions on contemporary dramaturgical practices. This organizational and theoretical knowledge will be applied to the practice of working with new writing in workshops with Raimondo Cortese, on the development of work by the students in the Masters in Writing for Performance. Through these three strands the subject places the work of the dramaturg in its socio-cultural context, and positions the students as future leaders in the field in Australia.
