Review of Between Tongues: Translation and/of/in performance in Asia by Jennifer Lindsay
journal contributionposted on 2023-05-26, 10:54 authored by Barbara HatleyBarbara Hatley
This is a rich and unusual book, both in content and the way its subject is conveyed. It reflects the passionate interest of Jennifer Lindsay, editor of the volume and organiser of the workshop from which it originated, in the workings of language in performance, particularly in Asia, and in the multiple strategies currently used or potentially available to translate such expression, to reach wider audiences and create new effects. And it brings together written articles and the workshop voices of scholars, playwrights, performers and literary/cultural figures from a number of Asian countries plus Australia and America, each with their own interests, skills and concerns, reflecting on the issue of translation in its widely differing dimensions.
