This subject examines Australian and international literatures concerned with dramaturgical research and its contribution to the design of cultural events that feature role performance in museums, zoos, aquaria, historic sites, and other cultural heritage settings. Participants develop case studies that analyse and evaluate the role of dramaturgical research within existing events and generate design briefs for new cultural events, theme-specific performative enactments, and/or site-specific interpretive installations.

- a survey of literature concerning the conduct of dramaturgical research for theatre and its relationship to role performance in museums, at heritage sites, and for special cultural events. - dramaturgical practice as it relates to contemporary theories concerning 'ecologies of performance' and 'the radical in performance'. - analysis of special events and installations in terms of the ways in which they enable audiences to interpret prevailing economic, political, social, cultural, and historical influences in new ways. - the ways in which the concept of role and role distance can be applied to alter the ways in which people interact with interpretive installations and performative enactments within diverse cultural contexts. - how new research perspectives in applied theatre, as practice-led research and research-led practice, are redefining the relationship between applied theatre practice and different forms of role performance in museums, at heritage sites, and through re-enactment events.
