Giovanna Di Martino and Estelle Baudou will discuss their on-going workshopping of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon. In October 2019, a workshop group composed of postgraduate students and researchers began working on translations of the parodos of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon. Their translations were then challenged theatrically with the help of stage exercises, and collectively amended, where needed. The workshop’s main objective was to use practice in order to build a translation/script for the stage, and explore how the translation could highlight the dramaturgy of the source text. However, when the lockdown began in the UK, the workshop moved to a Zoom format!


Join the Di Martino and Baudo to discuss this fascinating transition, archival memory, and the discovery of a new intermediary space connecting translation, philology, and dramaturgy.
