Umbrella Project says
Join us for Dramaturgy Open Office Hours in Seattle! Drop by to ask specific questions, learn about dramaturgy generally, or just hang out and chat about theatre. This month, we're joined by Sarah Guthu who is literally SO COOL. More info in the bio below.

Sarah Guthu possesses a wide-ranging curiosity and is interested in many things. She holds a Ph.D. in Theatre History and Critical Theory from the University of Washington; her publicly-presented work has covered such disparate topics as the role of empire in Alexander McQueen’s fashion designs (presented at the Sorbonne Nouveau, Paris, 2012) and a historical reconstruction of an international chain of theatre productions that helped expose corruption and oppression in Soviet Czechoslovakia in the early 1980s (Theatre Survey, 2013). Sarah currently works full-time as Grants Manager for ACT Theatre; freelances as a proofreader for Macmillan Publishers; writes and edits for other local nonprofits; and works with writers, artists, and young creative professionals to help them generate strong, clear communications.


More About the Dramaturgy Open Office Hours Project:

The Dramaturgy Open Office Hours Project launched in the spring of 2014 in New York City with the intent to increase accessibility to dramaturgs, and to create a place where people could meet to discuss dramaturgy in a relaxed, informal way. That fall, simultaneous sessions in Philadelphia and Baltimore/DC joined NYC, and live tweeting also expanded the participants, audience, and conversation. Now in its second year, the project continues to expand, this time to Chicago and Seattle. The expansion has been based on interested dramaturgs in cities around the country stepping forward to volunteer, and so we are eager to spread the word, in hopes of a continued, individual-driven expansion.

At each weekly session, the host dramaturg is joined by a guest dramaturg in a public space, available to answer questions, provide feedback, etc. to any writer/generative artist, performer, director, producer, etc., who might be interested in stopping by. Through this project we hope to provide basic support to other freelance artists, to build networks of collaborators, and to increase people’s awareness not only of the role of dramaturgs in the creative process, but also of the many dramaturgs living and working in their vicinity with whom they might choose to collaborate.
