Theatre Translation as Collaboration: Re-routing Text through Performance Arts Building, Queen Mary, University of London Saturday, 20 March, 2010

Keynote speakers: Professor J. Michael Walton and playwright Colin Teevan

Round table chaired by critic Aleks Sierz, featuring playwright Martin Crimp and theatre practitioners tba

Afternoon workshop led by Gráinne Byrne of Scarlet Theatre

The aim of this one-day graduate colloquium is to explore the collaborative creative processes involved in the re-routing of text from page to stage: what happens when a text is translated for performance? We will examine the act of theatre translation in all its multiple variations, including versions, adaptations and inter-semiotic transfers (for example from film or book to stage). How does research engage with the collaborative nature of translating for performance? We hope to expand and facilitate the dialogue between theatre practitioners and academics, illuminating the practice/theory debate.

Graduate students currently working in Theatre (including dance and design), Translation, Performance or Language Studies, or related areas are very welcome to attend.

Registration fee: £10. Please register by 5 March 2010
