The Bodies of Others investigates, through a series of close readings of several theatrical and film productions in Europe and South America, the relationship between ‘representation’ (including theatrical representation) and ethics (defined as an ongoing relational negotiation, as opposed to a set of universal moral laws).

Cattaneo traces the field from its beginnings in the eighteenth century to the present and chronicles the multitude and variety of tasks a dramaturg undertakes before, during, and after a production is brought to the stage.
