Join us on June 29th, 2018, to explore dramaturgical practice, and new play development in Canada

Dramaturgically Speaking - a community dialogue

Hosted by the Manitoba Association of Playwrights

What - a panel and seminar exploring dramaturgical practice, and new play development in Canada.

When - Friday, June 29th, 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm

Where - Cinematheque, main floor, 100 Arthur St. (Artspace building in the Exchange District)

Please join us for an afternoon of lively discussion and Q. & A. as we dip into all things dramaturgical. What is it? What are ‘best practices’? What should you expect from a dramaturg? What don’t they do? You’ve got a play, now what?

An exploration of how we support new work here and across the country.
