By inspiring ourselves in Drinfeld's DG quotient, we develop Postnikov towers, k-invariants and an obstruction theory for dg categories. As an application, we obtain the following 'rigiclification' theorem: let A be a homologically connective dg category and F-0 : B -> H-0(A) a dg functor to its homotopy category. If the inductive family {omega(n)(F-n)}n >= 0 of obstruction classes vanishes, then a lift F : B -> A for F-0 exists. (c) 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
