We typically conceive of translation as a solitary activity, yet translating plays for performance – the focus of much of Neil Blackadder’s work – involves extensive collaboration with directors and actors as well as authors. And he is currently engaged in translating from two languages at once: Anne Weber wrote Ahnen in German and translated it into French. Blackadder will explore these and other contexts in which collaboration makes translation triangular or even a multiplayer game.
