Welcome to Umbrella Project.
Umbrella Project exists to develop and advocate for diverse new theatrical work by demonstrating radical dramaturgical support. Our home and our heart is in Seattle.
What is radical dramaturgical support?
Radical dramaturgical support is an ever-expanding and evolving collection of activities completed in support of the script development process.
American dramaturgy includes research, structure analysis, education, and support for actors and directors.
Radical dramaturgical support extends traditional dramaturgy to include dramaturgically-informed hospitality practices, radically inclusive thinking, anti-oppressive measures, support around best practices, and more. This dramaturgical method is differentiated from standard American dramaturgy by its holistic approach, creativity, and centrality to the process of developing new theatrical work.
