20 October 2022 —
Offenes Haus der Kulturen, Mertonstraße 26-28, 60486 Frankfurt am Main
The translation of political plays requires a special approach – in addition to linguistic transfer, contexts, sociopolitical discourses and also theatre traditions must be conveyed. This will be discussed by Czech playwright Roman Sikora, translator Barbora Schnelle and translator and publisher Matthias Naumann.
The occasion for this event is the publication of two anthologies of plays by Roman Sikora: Frühstück mit Leviathan and Hanoch Levin: Die im Dunkeln in the book series Drama Panorama published by Neofelis Verlag, from which Henning Bochert will read excerpts. An event organised by Drama Panorama – Forum für Übersetzung und Theater e.V. and Neofelis Verlag.
