Revision of Out of the Wings from Mon, 19/07/2010 - 11:17
Grant Holder: Professor Catherine Boyle
Out of the Wings brings the untapped riches of the theatres of Spain and Spanish America to English-speaking theatre professionals – practitioners and researchers alike. The virtual environment will reveal the plays as well as the bodies of knowledge that inform and sustain professional practice within Hispanic cultures. In this way, users will be able to access the type of information that will open up the theatre to their interests and purpose.
Users will be able to search through a comprehensive database of Spanish-language plays (either generically under Golden Age, Modern Spanish and Spanish American or by key words – genre, type of play, number of characters, theme, etc.) to find the play or plays that are relevant to their own programming or research needs.
The entries of individual plays will all be contextualised through synopsis, sample translation, production notes, critical responses and performance history, and a final section will guide users towards a directory of theatre translators.
