Dramaturgy of a Performance Process traces the creative journey that led to Lamentations of Cain – A Vocal Structure, the first Icarus Performance Project. Spanning over four years (2001-2005), this book is an intriguing account of a creative process and provides valuable insights into the various facets and techniques of performance. The areas tackled revolve around the evolution of individual performance scores into a group performance structure. The decisive moment in the process is marked by the emergence of a tightly knit dramaturgy. Montage techniques, spatial dynamics, and the reliance on a vocal structure, all form an integral part of the dramaturgical weave. Edited and compiled by the Project's artistic director, Frank Camilleri, the book attempts to narrow the distance between the theory and practice of performance by adopting a documentary approach. Dramaturgy of a Performance Process contains a wealth of primary sources as well as various critical accounts and should be of interest to practitioners and students of theatre alike. The book has 72 pages and contains a preface by Toni Sant, contributions by Caldon Mercieca, Nicole Bugeja, and Sandro Spina, an interview by Raphael Vassallo, as well as photographs by Sandro Spina and Jeremy de Maria.
