Play an active dramaturgy role in this year’s festival!

Interested in a dramaturgical challenge? Want to collaborate with student playwrights, directors, and actors to help develop, rehearse, and perform a staged reading at Festival? Developed in conjunction the National Playwriting Program, NPP Embedded Dramaturgy offers student dramaturgs a chance to work directly with the playwright of a brand-new play. Applicants will be matched with their playwright shortly prior to Festival, which will allow them to begin a dialogue and commence research. Once Festival begins, the dramaturg will work in rehearsals and workshops to provide research support, feedback, and ideas about the content of the work. While in the past this role has been included late in the process, the shift from ‘Guerrilla Dramaturgy’ to ‘NPP Embedded Dramaturgy’ is intended to reflect the integral nature of the dramaturg and to offer meaningful support to the student playwrights involved in the National Playwriting Program. NPP Embedded Dramaturgs do not need prior experience, or even to bring anything in particular with them aside from any research they have started prior to rehearsals. While NPP Embedded Dramaturgy requires a considerable time commitment, students will be able to participate in other areas and workshops at the Festival. To apply to be an NPP Embedded Dramaturg, fill out the form below.

For dramaturgs interested in another opportunity for collaboration, we are pleased to introduce the Collaborative Theatre Challenge. All students interested in taking on the Collaborative Theatre Challenge will be introduced to a new play, presented by the playwright. This play will act as a catalyst for creation and conversation, as students will be broken into small groups of directors, dramaturgs, and designers, and will be tasked with developing a design concept for the work. Over the course of the week, each group will collaborate on a design which speaks to that group’s vision for the piece, and will have a chance to compete to see who is able to meet the Collaborative Theatre Challenge! This Challenge can be undertaken in addition to the NPP Embedded Dramaturgy program, and students will have access to local resources and materials to prepare their submission. To apply to be a Collaborative Theatre Challenge Dramaturg, fill out the form below.

The KCACTF Region 2 Dramaturgy Program Note Award is designed to recognize excellence in dramaturgy notes written for programs associated with Associate or Participating Productions in the region over the last calendar year (January-December 2019). Applicants for the Dramaturgy Program Note Award will submit their dramaturgy note, accompanied with a short narrative to contextualize the piece. Applications will be evaluated by the guest dramaturg and winners will be announced at closing ceremonies. While we do welcome applications from students who are also applying for the LMDA/KCACTF National Dramaturgy Award, this is open to all students who meet the criterion.
