How does our response to race, gender, and physical limitation impact theater-making today? What kinds of biases block our capacity to explore and address these aspects of diversity? The ability to see, hear and assess in new and challenging ways is crucial to how we make theater, and central to this process is the role of the dramaturg, who provides the connective tissue between multiple areas of a production process. The case studies in Diverse Dramaturgy examine moments in dramaturgical practice that pose challenges, difficulties, and opportunities to see situations differently, to transform feelings of awkwardness or uncertainty into crucial junctures of learning and growing.
