22. Internationale Werkstatt Mülheim - "Translating Theater"

The International Theatre Institute (ITI Germany), and the Mülheim Theatre Days "Plays 2021", with the support of the Goethe-Institut, invites translators of German-language drama to a workshop from May 21 to 30, 2021.

Following the decision by the Mülheimer Theatertage to switch to an online format, it was decided that this year's workshop would also be held online. It will take place as planned from May 21st to May 30th.


The focus will be on the concrete work of the translators on the plays nominated for the 46th Mülheim Theatertage and the exchange of experiences with colleagues and authors. Current texts by contemporary German-language authors will be experienced not only as literature, but also in a theatrical realization within the framework of the festival. Accompanying events will contribute to a better understanding of the cultural and political environment of the plays and of contemporary German-language theater. These will be public audience discussions after the performances as well as conversations with authors, dramaturges, publishers and directors.  


Joining us are:

Salman Abbas (India), Viktorija Blazheska (Macedonia), Jana Blümel (Uruguay), Amrita Dhara (India), Larysa Fedorenko (Ukraine), Claudia Fischer (Portugal), Mariam Gurzadyan (Armenia), Liis Kolle (Estonia), Veronika Krichevskaia (Russia), Veronika Kyrianova (Czech Republic), Samuel Petit (France), Vitali Serov (Russia), Marc Silbermann (United States), Hamsavahini Singh (India), Katharina Stalder (Switzerland), Monika von Moldovanyi de Goyeneche (Chile)


We are very happy to welcome the Indian theater maker and author Kamal Pruthi for a two-day seminar focus on his writing and theater practice at the workshop!
