Shakespeare Lives in Translation – A Great Feast of Languages” is part of Shakespeare Lives, a global celebration of William Shakespeare’s influence on culture, language education and society. The programme will be launched as part of Select Centre’s TranslateSingapore 2016 Festival.
Participants will be guided by local facilitators to translate dialogues, jokes, puns and the sonnets into local vernacular. The texts from Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet will play a key role in defining the intercultural significance and nuances of Shakespeare’s prose and poetry in Mandarin or Malay. These discussions take place alongside specially made video recordings of actors from Shakespeare’s Globe.
