Saturday 26 September 2015
Boyd Community Centre, Melbourne
At this event organised in association with VITS (Victorian Interpreting and Translation Services), AALITRA hosted three presentations from translators, academics and theatre professionals discussing various issues and questions surrounding translation and theatre.
ANGELA TARANTINI & DAVID MENCE
Angela Tarantini is translating into Italian some plays by award-winning Australian playwright, David Mence; together they explained how their two voices merge to create a new work and how non-verbal elements influence translation.
CONSUELO MARTINEZ REYES
Consuelo Martínez Reyes is in the process of translating and editing the unpublished works of Puerto Rican playwright and poet Victor Fragoso; she passed on some of his ideas and aesthetics, relevant to translators working in multi-lingual communities today.
MICHAEL BULA & HENRY MÉRA
With years of experience at Melbourne French Theatre, Michael Bula & Henry Méra shared practical methods of presenting plays in one language so that they may be understood by an audience speaking a different language.
