New Play Exchange Page: Dramaturg - Meredith Bartmon
Dramaturgy’s provocative power to impact radical empathy caused me to shift my career goals recently toward literary management. As a dramaturg, I can urgently commit to utilizing theatrical storytelling for progressive change. Multiple artists with whom I’ve collaborated have praised my expertise in translating and communicating broad contextual research into accessible relevance. In my first year as an early career dramaturg, I’ve cultivated enduring relationships with five theatres, on three coasts. I’ve specialized in new plays, with nine full-length plays, twelve short plays, and twenty young playwrights having utilized my dramaturgical work. Discovering emotional resonance through intellectual curiosity is my jam. I find joy in sparking moments of revelatory comprehension within the world of the play. My BFA gave me a love for the musical canon, my MA fed my passion for Shakespeare and British theatre, and my professional experience shaped my curiosity for the analysis of dramatic literature.
