Probing movement … A dramaturg’s experience
Join us for the first appointment within ŻfinMalta’s Movimento series for the 23/24 season with our guest, Victor Jacono who will be sharing his experience with dance dramaturgy.
“The dramaturg’s work may be too complex to capture in a few words, but I have a soft spot for synthetic definitions, so … for me, dramaturgy is empowering the artist’s work, that in turn is empowering the creative encounter between the artist and the beholder.”
Along with sharing his experience of movement and dance through this lens, during this session he shall be sharing his multifaceted approach to dramaturgy whilst producing some dramaturgical tools that participants can try out.
Dr. Victor Jacono is a senior lecturer and coordinates the Performing Arts programmes at MCAST’s Institute for the Creative Arts. He is a theatre director and playwright, with a keen interest in relating complexity and brain science to performer training and creativity. He has been collaborating with ŻfinMalta on a number of projects, including dramaturgical collaborations with Paolo Mangiola, Sergiu Matis, the New Victorians and Adriano Bolognino.
