Event description

Description

[Foreign Affairs] theatre company presents three brand new world theatre translations live on stage.

This evening of new translation extracts, to be performed at the Rose Lipman Building on 19 and 20 January 2018, is the culmination of [Foreign Affairs] Translates! a six-month workshop programme to help develop theatre in translation.

Having worked exclusively with European texts in our inaugural programme last year, we are thrilled to be bringing work from farther afield and venturing into Chinese-Mandarin, Japanese and Finnish language translation.

This year we have another trio of female translators who will be working with a team of language and theatre translation experts alongside [Foreign Affairs] team of producers, directors and actors. The translators will bring the words of Gu Lei, Izumi Kyoka and Marie Kajava’s to an English speaking audience.

Recognizing that translation is so often a solitary process [Foreign Affairs] Translates! was designed to give theatre translators the opportunity to see their work performed whilst still in development, bringing them closer to live performance by immersing them in theatre practice and giving them the tools to facilitate a more symbiotic relationship between performance and text.

The public sharing will comprise performed extracts from Lani Calvert's translation from Chinese-Mandarin of Gu Lei’s play 十个人的夜晚 The Night of Ten People; Nozomi Abe’s translation from Japanese of 泉鏡花 Izumi Kyoka play 天守物語 Tenshu-Tale and Liisa Muinonen-Martin’s translation from Finnish of Marie Kajava’s Famine. The sharing is directed by [Foreign Affairs]’ artistic director’s Trine Garrett and Camila França. The six-month programme is produced by [Foreign Affairs].

Post-show talks

A post-show talk will be held after each performance. The post-show talks will cover the need for translated drama and its value as well as the place of world theatre in today’s globalized world and the translation process as experienced by the participants on this programme, chaired by an expert on translation.
