Theatre Translation Forum Seminar Series - Naturalism
Tuesday, October 15, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
The Theatre Translation Forum is a new initiative designed to create a meeting space for UCL academics and theatre practitioners to share common themes in their research, presenting and discussing issues relating to the theatrical presentation of translated performance.
This seminar considers theatre translation and naturalism, with a particular focus upon the works of Ibsen, Chekhov, Strindberg, and Arthur Schnitzler. It features three academic papers, by Judith Beniston, Philip Bullock, and Marie Wells, followed by talks from Agnes Broomé and Howard Brenton about their work translating Strindberg for the Gate Theatre's recent production Dances of Death.
