Behind the 2019 Nobel Prize for Literature, shared by novelists Olga Tokarczuk and Peter Handke, are translators--one key among them Jennifer CROFT, translator from the Polish, the Ukrainian, and the Spanish. Congratulations!
On Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 at 9:00 p.m. CST (10:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 Shanghai time), the International Writing Program (IWP), in association with the University of Iowa's Theatre Arts Department and the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre, will present Book Wings China, a bilingual collaborative theatre production featuring six short plays (three Chinese, three American) commissioned on the theme of "migration." Using high-definition videoconferencing technologies, the theatre companies will virtually connect their stages for the performance, creating a single dramatic space in which American and Chinese actors work side by side to present the commissioned scripts. The production will be open to the public in China and in the U.S. and will be viewable via a live streaming website. Book Wings China is modeled off the groundbreaking 2012 Book Wings collaboration between the IWP, the University of Iowa Theatre Arts Department, and the Moscow Art Theatre.
