Every year, the german Centre of ITI invites translators of German-language drama to an international workshop as part of the Mülheimer Theatertage.
The open call 2024 has not yet been published. More information will follow during November on this page and on theateruebersetzen.de
The workshop for translators promotes engagement with new German-language drama on an international level. The focus is on concrete work with selected texts, supported by knowledge sharing among colleagues and authors. The Mülheimer Theatertage offers the special opportunity to not only work on theatre texts during the festival, but also to experience them on stage. This encourages possibilities for translation and performances in the translators’ home countries at a later date. The workshop is enriched by meetings with authors, publishers, critics, and theatre professionals. This exchange contributes to a better understanding of the cultural and political setting of the plays and of contemporary German-language theatre.
