What is the expanded function, role and practice of dramaturgy in the context of works and collaborations that does not respond to strict formats?

Currently she is a dramaturge at Theater Neumarkt in Zürich and together with choreogrpaher Graham Smith and director Tom Schneider runs dance company pvc where they focus on the radical opening of institutional boundaries, the questioning of sanctities, and the mission to develop virally.
