12 January 2010

AHRC-funded project ‘Out of the Wings’ presents its

2010 Symposium

‘Spanish Golden Age Drama in Translation and Performance’

at Merton College, Oxford

18-19 March 2010


Registration and Accommodation, Catering OTW ’10

Translating and performing the works of Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina and Calderón de la Barca, and other playwrights of the Golden Age have sparked an increasing amount of interest, heightened by the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2004-5 Golden Age season. Our Symposium will be attended by both academic and theatrical practitioners working within the field of Golden Age drama, and a wider base of attendees interested in Spanish theatre in general, as well as University colleagues and students. Speakers will be drawn from the United States and Europe, representing a variety of areas of expertise in translation and performance of the comedia. Please explore our website (www.outofthewings.org) for more information on the project, and see the rest of the blog for past events.

Rehearsed Readings of Spanish Plays at the Soho

27 October 2008

Janet Morris, Out of the Wings’s Project Associate, writes…

I was very fortunate to see rehearsed readings, in English translation, of three plays by contemporary Spanish authors.  The event, at the Soho Studio on 25 October, was organised by the Euro Theatro Association, in collaboration with Rose Bruford College in London, the Spanish Ministry for Culture and Caos Editorial.

The plays were written by different authors and each text had been translated by a different translator. All three performances, directed and played by theatre professionals, were very impressive and these were enriched by subsequent discussions involving the playwrights.

Congratulations to everyone involved in such a successful event.

For those who read Spanish, there is detailed coverage in Público online here.
