Contemporary Drama in Translation

Arabian Nights ©Sapan Saran

Contemporary German-language drama is characterized by enormous variety. Many playscripts written in German are known to audiences in Asia primarily through their English translations. It would of course be far preferable to present these plays to the public in Asian languages. Those reflections are what gave rise to our project: Contemporary German-language drama in six South Asian languages – Bangla, Hindi, Marathi, Sinhalese, Tamil, and Urdu.
