This is an investigation of dramaturgy and the role of the dramaturg within creative devising process. The submission presents new perspectives on the nature of dramaturgy, both as a field of study and as a practice. The complexity of the term is demonstrated with view to arguing that it can be applied to other contexts and processes than drama and theatre. It is argued that dramaturgy need not be viewed as a method or particular structure, instead it can be understood as an inherently contextual term and practice. My investigation of dramaturgy offers a new perspective on the nature of dramaturgical practice. It demonstrates that dramaturgy has evolved to become an increasingly interdisciplinary field. With reference to my own practice it is argued that the dramaturg is a creative collaborator within the devising process. The conclusion is that the nature of devising and the open process has necessitated a rethinking of the dramaturgical role. The investigation of dramaturgy is presented through a series of different products within the submission, ranging across different formats and publication styles, some of which relate to practical performance practice. This combination of material’s demonstrates that dramaturgical practice encompasses theory and practice.
