Post-Show Dramaturgy

Before the Nonlinear Lineage project took shape, I had conducted an archival dramaturgy project, through which I interviewed artists about past works.  The project (which may pick up again as a more formal aspect of NL) was an effort to contribute artist-driven, critical dialogue to our “permanent” record of conversations about performance, which tends to be dominated by press.  It was also an attempt to engage more deeply with the work we create, to discuss “what was,” instead of always obsessing only over “what’s next.”
