Dramaturgy

Dramaturgy involves many processes and there isn’t one approach that works with all writers or on all pieces of theatre. As each play is a unique discovery of understanding human life, every dramaturgical process must reflect and respect this diversity.

Caroline has worked with writers new to the medium of theatre to leading international writers working on multi authored multi lingual plays. Her experience covers the large scale original drama, touring work, site specific plays, multi authored work, writing for younger audiences, adaptations to new writing for youth theatre.
