This practice as research PhD, ‘Dramaturgy with other-than-human species’, will consist of live art projects that explore dramaturgy practice with fungi and plants and a written thesis explicating this research. The initial research questions for the PhD are: How does doing dramaturgy with other-than-human subjects activate thinking about the Anthropocene? How does doing dramaturgy with other-than-human subjects radically change my practice? And how do artists and dramaturgs negotiate the ethical problems with working with other-than-human subjects while they aim to confront inequalities relating to the Anthropocene?
