An Interdisciplinary Approach to Dramaturgy: using other disciplines to research Annie Baker's "The Flick" for production
MetadataShow full item record
As the dramaturge for Angelo State University's Fall 2018 production of "The Flick"; by Annie Baker, my role was to research and analyze the play, the playwright, and the production history for the production company. The director for this particular production allowed me to serve primarily as a production dramaturge, ensuring that the script was being honored and that the production did not deviate too far from the textual intent. Additionally, my duties including providing student educational packets for the cast and audience members in which I explored several theories outside of theatre to enhance and expand our understanding of the characters in the play, particularly from Buddhism and how that influences our theatrical exploration of the world where those fictional characters exist.
