Theatre Lab, UCC, in the Connolly Complex, Western Road
Keynote Speaker: Piotr Gruszczyński, Dramaturge and co-programmer of Nowy Teatr, Warsaw

Why does the dramaturge not need to be a playwright? What creates spaces and techniques of theatrical imagination in the context of a dramaturge’s work? What is the relationship between theatre
and the literary text? How do dramaturgical strategies manipulate narratives to reflect and represent them in a multidisciplinary context?
This conference aims to open up discussion around contemporary cutting-edge dramaturgical practices and the role of dramaturge in contemporary theatre. For full schedule and to register for this conference please go to: bit.ly/Perforum
