There is a growing interest in the notion and practice of dramaturgy, which is often discussed either as the work of the dramaturge or as the compositional, cohesive, or sense-making aspects of a performance. Drawing on such views, this book addresses the subject as a shared, politicized, and catalytic practice that sets actions into motion in a more speculative way. In its first part, three working principles are discussed that form the heart of this proposition, relating to debates on action, work, and post-Fordist labour. The second part opens up to artistic, social, and political perspectives that may emerge from such an understanding of dramaturgy through contributions by guest authors.
