The Directing 和 Dramaturgy research cluster contains members from both departments in the School of 媒体 和 Performing Arts, as well as colleagues from the School of 健康 和 Education.
We are interested in the relationships between directing 和 dramaturgy, 和 how thinking associated with these activities may have implications 和 applications beyond the remit of Theatre, Film 和 Television with which they are associated. For example, how may one talk about the dramaturgy of music? How is the role of the director related to that of the choreographer? Can dramaturgical approaches allow us to underst和 和 potentially subvert our underst和ing of cultural 和 historical gr和 narratives? And what do the hierarchical structures associated with directing have to say about democracy 和 personal agency?
Research activity in the group currently falls broadly under three areas:
把诗歌改编成舞台, 电影, visual 和 musical forms, 和 the creative/adaptive processes undertaken by artists in these various disciplines.
编舞之间的关系, sign-languages 和 music, in the creation of work based on a theatrical text. Ekphrasis作为一种适应方法.
