Oussama Ghanam  |  Research/Training/Regional Events  |  2016  |  Syria
This project centers on theoretical and historical notions of dramaturgy since Gotthold Ephraim Lessing until present times. The book will be an anthology with translations of fundamental writings pertaining to this artistic and theoretical practice and will provide an analysis of contemporary Arab theatrical production within the framework of its relationship to the cultural and informed context. The publication will be preceded by two research workshops, the first will be theoretical and will revolve around notions and examples of dramaturgical practice and the second will concentrate on adaptation in Performing Arts.
