PROGRAMME


09.00 – 9.30 (Milburn House: Writer’s room & Studio) Registration and Coffee


9.30 -11.30 TRANSLATING TRANSLATIONS

Workshop with playwright / translator Paul Sirrett (Soho Theatre, London)


How does a play make the journey from one language to another? How does a literal translation become a performance text? How do we translate a translation? This practical workshop examines the process of working from a literal translation towards a script for performance using Spanish Golden Age classics and contemporary Polish plays. Participants do not need to be able to speak or read texts in the original language as they will be working in English.

(If you plan to take part in the workshop, please register early since the number of participants is limited).
