What is Dramaturgy?

Dramaturgy is a branch of the theatrical arts which involves bringing productions to life on the stage. The role of a dramaturg in a production can be quite varied, they can work with playwrights on new scripts, they can work with directors and designers on historical accuracy and they can provide research for character development to actors. The study of dramaturgy also includes the study of the history of theater. An experienced dramaturg is familiar with the history of the theatrical tradition, often in many cultures, and he or she can put historical plays into context. Many dramaturgs have an interest in playwriting and developing new scripts.
