Documentary Algeria

With numerous shooting days in the south of Algeria, Vincent Productions moves to risky and complex ground. The material created there needs to be translated from the Berber language Tamazhigt and an Algerian dialect of French into German. Bochert Translation coordinates these translation services.

AGNUS

In the futuristic world of the play AGNUS by Ise Lyfe and Matt Werner, there are officially no more prisons on the north American continent. Instead, Agnus Eli is held as a suspect in a secret prison on a boat offshore after the unsolved murder of the governor of California. The play tells the story of assessor Richard and his attempts to understand the mysterious character of Agnus and the murder. Needless to say, everything turns out completely different in the end.

The play was translated from English into German by Henning Bochert and will be rehearsed and presented at a prison in June 2021.

THE TRIALS

It is my outstanding pleasure and privilege to translate THE TRIALS (DIE PROZESSE), the newest text by British playwright Dawn King. The play is a commission by the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, its world premiere is scheduled for 04 June 2021 at the Bürgerbühne Düsseldorf.

In a not too distant future, a jury of children and teenagers are to decide over the fate of the generations of their parents. The climate catastrophe has happened, the ressources of an overheating earth will not suffice for its too many human inhabitants. With the trials, the former generation is judged by the future one for its responsibility for this catastrophe, the guilty ones are executed: fewer mouths to feed.

With her great success FOXFINDER (finalist of the Suzan Smith Blackburn Prize 2013/14) and her play CHIFFREN, King is already a name even on German stages.

Directed by Adrian Figueroa, designed by Irina Schicketanz, and with a large cast of 15 characters, the production is certainly something to look forward to.
