Language is No Obstacle

Exchange: Brekky Session

Presenting works in translation requires a nuanced understanding of the interplay of language, place, and context, or it risks the chance of alienating – or worse, offending – audiences. When successful, it can bring to light a new artistic perspective, and introduce artists to new markets and opportunities. But how do artists and producers build bilingualism into the fabric of a show? What challenges arise when performing in new cultural contexts? Join this panel conversation with performance-makers and presenters who have in-depth experience of working in translation.

Hosted by Stephen Armstrong
