This international platform, supported by Culture
2000 under action 2, puts translators at the hub of a process of
exchange and circulation of playscripts.
The process began with translators in four of
the partner countries - Finland, France, Germany and the United
Kingdom - each proposing two contemporary playscripts from their
"national" repertoire to their foreign colleagues. These

The eight translated playscripts were then given
public readings, after which four of the plays (one from each country)
were performed on stage in the country of translation and then presented
in their country of origin. To round off the exercise, anthologies
of the translated plays are going to be published.
This two-year project (2001-2003) is led
by the "Zentrum BRD des Internationalen Theaterinstituts"
