A series of drop-in workshops on translating theater led by translator-in-residence Jeremy Tiang. Bring along pages from your play translations to hear them read out loud, or just show up to participate. Roles will be assigned on the day. Knowledge of another language is helpful but not necessary. Come explore what happens to theater when it moves across boundaries of language and culture. No experience in theater or translating required. Led by Tiang on select Mondays throughout the semester.

The workshop on Feb. 21 and March 14 is presented in collaboration with Princeton Chinese Theater.
