Montclair Translates for Milan via Florence at EXPO 2015 (Dec. 11)
The final of a series of in-class presentations by experts in translation, interpretation, and titling/captioning, the program will embrace a workshop on translation/titling focusing on the select materials produced within the 2015 "Titling Voices Across Continents" project (see VIDEO). International guest speakers will address topics such as the techniques and technologies used for translating and titling for theater, the importance of these tools for the fruition of live performances, and their use from different points of view (the production, the mise-en-scène, the actors).
This program is also the occasion for the official illustration of the international project "Titling Voices Across Continents," presented in collaboration by the Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies at Montclair State University (Italian Program, Department of Spanish and Italian) and Prescott Studio, a titling agency based in Florence Italy. The project has provided English surtitles produced in Montclair to a calendar of plays presented in Milan on the occasion of Expo 2015.
This event is free and open to the public.RSVP required by Wed. Dec. 9, 2015
