The UCL Theatre Translation Forum is a new initiative designed to create a meeting space for academic researchers and theatre practitioners to explore interdisciplinary themes in drama/theatre research and discuss issues relating to the theatrical presentation of translated performance. This series, spread over October 2013 to March 2014, explores four theatrical genres by means of research seminars with contributions from academe and theatre supported by workshops led by professional directors and actors. The first topic, Naturalism, on 15 October, will discuss Ibsen, Chekhov, Strindberg, and Arthur Schnitzler, including a talk from playwright Howard Brenton, whose recent version of ‘Dances of Death’ will then be explored in a practical workshop led by director Tara Robinson on 29 October. Further details and registration are available on the Theatre Translation Forum website:

The series is funded by the UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities and run in partnership with the Gate Theatre, Notting Hill. Please contact the convenors, Geraldine Brodie,, and Emma Cole,, for additional information.
