DANCER IN THE DARK

My translation of Patrick Ellsworth’s DANCER IN THE DARK will be produced at Gerhart-Hauptmann-Theater Görlitz-Zittau. The opening is scheduled for 18 March 2016.

This is what the playwright said about it:

“I just wanted to commend you on a masterful job! The German text is unbelievably faithful to the original. I am truly proud to share your translation with both the cast and the German theater-going public.”

Playwright Carlos Murillo’s Website

Carlos+Murillo

A few years ago, I translated two plays of US playwright Carlos Murillo. Both DARK PLAY OR STORIES FOR BOYS and HUMAN INTEREST STORY (OR THE GORY DETAILS AND ALL) were produced by Katharina Kreuzhage and premiered at Theater Aalen – and never again since. Both of those wonderful texts would very much be worth to see new German language productions. They may be obtained from S. Fischer Verlag Theater & Medien.

Carlos Murillo now has a website of his own where he reports about his activities as a teacher, playwright, and director. He included, among others, links to our exploration of the relationship between playwright, text, and director in US theatre, which had been published on HowlRound.com as well as on HOTreview.org.
