Tim Roseman talks dramaturgy
2013 PWA Dramaturgy Internships
We're fast learning that a chat with Playwriting Australia's Tim Roseman is never dull. Perhaps fuelled by his passion for dramaturgy (or maybe it was a sugar high from his birthday cake), Tim provided some welcome comic relief on a late Friday afternoon, before getting down to the serious business of PWA's latest program, the 2013 Dramaturgy Internsips.
We'd stopped by Carriageworks to say hi to the latest intake of critical thinkers taking part in this year's program, who are each using AustrlianPlays.org Library Passes to trawl through the canon of Australian playwriting.
Tim took some time out to explain how the program works and share his take on the role of the dramaturg within the broader echosystem of theatre-makers.
