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

      Graduate Colloquium funded by:
      The Arts and Humanities Research Council and
      The Graduate School in Humanities and Social Sciences,
      Queen Mary, University of London

      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
