Hello, hola, olá!
Thank you for visiting. We are Out of the Wings, an international collective sharing and discovering theatre from the Spanish- and Portuguese-Speaking world.
In July 2018 we celebrated our third annual festival, in and around the Cervantes Theatre in London.
We presented five play-readings from Cuba, Brazil, Chile, Spain and Peru, including a sell-out performance on our closing night. These ranged from a 90-year-old classic presented in English for the first time, to brand-new work only recently premiered in its home country. We were delighted to welcome actors, writers, directors and other creatives from around the world to take part in sharing these wonderful plays.
For our 2018 festival we also ran three workshops exploring theatre in translation, including an exploration of how directors and translators can work better together; a workshop taking translation to new heights with aerial performance, and a look at the journey from micro-tales to big-scale storytelling.
And on our final day, we were joined by theatre and translation researchers, practitioners and organisations for our one-day forum at King’s College London.
We will soon be posting a write-up of our festival here, but in the meantime do explore our website, look us up on Twitter @outofthewings or Facebook at facebook.com/outofthewings.
And remember we are busy all year round! We meet once a month in London to read a play in translation. Our meetings are free to attend and all are welcome. To join us, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon, até a próxima, hasta la próxima!
