Theatre Translation Forum

The Theatre Translation Forum is a new initiative designed to create a meeting space for academics and theatre practitioners to share common themes in their research, presenting and discussing issues relating to the theatrical presentation of translated performance.

Plays in translation feature regularly in the programmes of London theatres, usually described as 'versions' or 'adaptations'.

It is estimated that around half a million theatre visits each year relate to translated performances, demonstrating the relevance and interest of theatrical intercultural transposition for local and visiting audiences.
