Since the early nineties, the boundaries of dramaturgy have expanded beyond the already known exclusive theatrical practice demarcations. Nowadays, dramaturgy is one of the most important themes of contemporary art, inasmuch as it is not only about the dramaturgy of theatrical text, but also of the body, dance, and show. Within this universe, we seek to understand the construction of dramaturgy in contemporary dance, through the discussions that emerge from the relation between choreographer and playwright, with the intent of identifying, in the scene as well as in the speech, the concept expressed by them on what dramaturgy happens to be, and the insertion of the playwright into the specificities of the choreographic concept. Therefore, we'll make use of a theoretical-analytical approach, implemented through the combination of show analysis with collecting of documents and the use of semi-structured interviews that might bring questions and answers up on the theme. Certainly, there will be difficulties in accomplishing this research, insofar as this is an ongoing theme within contemporary art. Nevertheless, its accomplishment also hints at fascinating discoveries, which are essential to the work of stage artists, so that it's feasible to foresee a relevant contribution to the understanding of dramaturgy in dance and the performance of playwrights in some contemporary dance companies.
