    In a joint effort to promote Dutch-language theatre texts in French-speaking regions, Dutch Performing Arts and Flanders Literature organise a translation workshop for contemporary theatre texts, in collaboration with Maison Antoine Vitez (Centre international de la traduction théâtrale) and La Chartreuse (Centre national des écritures du spectacle).
    Goal of the workshop is to familiarise (aspiring) translators of the genre with the specificities of theatre text and to expand the available number of translators who can translate theatre texts to French.

    About the workshop
    The six-day workshop is geared to (aspiring) translators who wish to (further) explore the theatre genre. This call is open to beginners as well as seasoned translators who want to learn more about the translation of theatre literature. We also welcome applicants who are familar with the theatre world but who do not have any experience as a translator.

    The translation workshop will take place in the convent of La Chartreuse in Villeneuve-lèz-Avignon, France from 4-9 November 2019. We offer a spot to four Dutch to French translators and four French to Dutch translators.

    Participants will work under the guidance of Esther Gouarné and Mike Sens, who are both translators with a specialisation in theatre.

    Applications
    The expenses for travel, accomodation and dinner of selected candidates will be covered by the organisation.

    Applicants must submit a number of documents, including a test translation of an excerpt from a theatre text. They can either choose from a list of pre-selected texts compiled by the organisation or choose a text themselves. To receive the list of pre-selected texts, contact the organisation via the email address below.
