From Dramatic Text to Visual Dramaturgy

As a system of signs or of signifying practices aimed at engaging with another system of signs and of signifying practices, the one belonging to the stage, the performance text found its postdramatic equivalent in visual dramaturgy. The critical attention is directed at the image or at the perceived relationship between body, space, sound, light and objects. The mission of visual dramaturgy is represented by the association between the viewer and what is being viewed, the semiotics of the visual, post-narratology, the phenomenology of the body or of the gaze, serving a single aim: organising the action in order to have it performed.
