INTRODUCTION TO THEATRE TRANSLATION 2020

A one-on-one mentorship opportunity

For years Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal (PWM) and the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD) have worked to forge links between French and English language theatre communities and foster the art of theatre translation. To this end, the two organizations have once again partnered together to offer two individualized mentorships meant to familiarize playwrights to the craft of theatre translation. The mentorship described below is focused on French to English theatre translation. Details on the English to French translation component of this mentorship can be found on the CEAD’s website.

How the mentorship works:

  • PWM will select 1 participant with an interest in French to English theatre translation;
  • Over a period of several months, the participant will translate excerpts (roughly 10-12 pages) of two contemporary Québécois plays selected by the CEAD;
  • Over several weeks, the participant will receive a total of 12 hours of dramaturgical support from acclaimed playwright and theatre translator Alexis Diamond;
  • The participant will have the opportunity to discuss their translations with the original playwrights;
  • The mentorship will culminate in two 4-hour workshops during which professional actors will read and discuss the newly-translated excerpts;
  • The participant will then have the chance to meet with the second participant as well as both mentors to present their work and discuss their experiences;
  • After the workshops, the participant will submit their final drafts of the translated excerpts to the CEAD.

Who can apply?

  • Montreal-based playwrights with a strong interest in French-to-English theatre translation;
  • The candidate must have excellent writing skills in English and have fluent comprehension of Québecois French;
  • Playwrights with little to no experience in theatre translation are encouraged to apply;
  • Applicants must have a minimum of two professionally produced pieces or Fringe productions.

2020-2021 AMPLIFIER: a fully supported exploratory creation process for playwrights

IMPORTANT:
Les candidats peuvent postuler à plus d’un programme de partenariat au Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal, mais ne peuvent être bénéficiaires que d’un seul programme de partenariat.

Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal est une organisation faisant partie de la minorité linguistique anglophone. La collaboration de l’artiste avec le.la conseiller.ère dramaturgique se fera donc en anglais. La candidature doit être complétée en anglais.
Nous sommes ravis d'annoncer que le Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal (PWM), LA SERRE–arts vivants (LA SERRE) and the Conseil des Arts de Montréal (CAM) are launching a new program offering comprehensive dramaturgical and artistic support to a professional playwright residing on the island of Montreal. This includes dramaturgical consultation, creation workshop, a creation production residency, followed by a laboratory presentation.

The following playwrights are eligible to submit proposals: Indigenous artists (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit), 1st or 2nd generation immigrant artists from a culturally diverse community*, or racialized artists.
Board Members of CAM, PWM and La Serre are not eligible to apply.

*As defined in the Conseil des Arts de Montréal’s glossary

In order to support artists writing in French and artists writing in English, this program is being offered alternately by the Centre des auteurs dramatiques (CEAD) in French one year, and by PWM in English every other year. This edition is intended for artists creating in the English language.

THE GOALS

The program aims to highlight the artistic and social contributions of theatre artists from culturally diverse, indigenous, or racialized communities working creatively in one of Canada’s official languages.

Additionally, it seeks to foster dialogue between Montréal’s English- and French-speaking theatre communities, as well as intercultural exchanges and greater representation from culturally diverse artists within the theatre community and on Montreal stages.

THE SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS

PWM logo

CONSEIL DES ARTS DE MONTRÉAL

Founded in 1956, the Conseil des arts de Montréal identifies, supports and recognizes excellence in the professional creation, production and dissemination of the arts.

To remain in tune with the organizations and collectives it serves, the Conseil relies on its knowledge of the communities, its innovative skills, and its ability to bring the city’s artists and financial partners together.

PLAYWRIGHTS’ WORKSHOP MONTRÉAL 

PWM is a national new creation centre for theatre and performance led by a team of dramaturgs and arts administrators. While playwriting has been at the core of what we do for over 50 years, our work now strives to include devised and interdisciplinary forms of creation. In addition to seeking collaborations across diverse artistic practices, we are strongly committed to supporting work which reflects a wide range of cultural identities and lived experiences. 

Qu'est-ce que la dramaturgie, et que faisons-nous?

La dramaturgie est une exploration de tous les éléments composant une œuvre, de la manière dont ils sont réunis pour créer du sens, et du processus de développement de cette œuvre. PWM travaille principalement sur des projets centrés sur le texte et la narration, mais aussi sur des pièces où le texte et la narration ne sont pas les principales composantes ou préoccupations.

Le travail de PWM est centré sur l’artiste et notre processus de collaboration dynamique est conçu pour répondre aux besoins de leur projet. Nous écoutons attentivement pour comprendre l'identité d'un.e artiste, ce qu'il.elle fait et comment il.elle souhaite poursuivre son travail. Nous offrons commentaires et retours à travers de nombreuses questions et conversations, et accompagnons souvent les artistes d'ébauche en ébauche ou d'itération en itération. Nous travaillons en tête-à-tête, mais aussi au travers d'ateliers et de résidences.

Pour nous, la dramaturgie doit également prendre en compte les réverbérations/implications d'une œuvre à travers le temps et l'espace, au-delà du lieu/page dans/sur laquelle elle se crée. 

LA SERRE–ARTS VIVANTS

LA SERRE is a structuring incubator for the improvement of the conditions under which emerging artists carry out their work in live art. It accompanies them in the expansion of their work, from the creation process to encounters with the public. It helps artists develop their autonomy, organizational maturity and artistic independence. LA SERRE acts as an activator of collaborations between artists and local, national and international partners, as well as artists from various artistic disciplines and other areas. Artistically, LA SERRE favors projects that establish evocative links between art and society, and facilitate connections between different disciplinary fields and sectors.

SOUTIEN FOURNI

The recipient of the program will receive a project creation grant of $13,000 by the CAM over two years, along with numerous services provided by PWM, LA SERRE, et CAM. This is a one-time, non-renewable grant.

The program takes place over two years, and support is provided as follows:

YEAR 1

$3,000 creation grant for a new theatrical creation

30 hours of dramaturgical collaboration with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

9 hours of script workshopping offered by Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

A staged reading with actors at Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

YEAR 2

$10,000 creation grant for production

40 hours of production and management mentorship by LA SERRE–arts vivants

60 hours of free access to the Conseil des Arts de Montréal’s studios

Presentation of two performances in lab format

One-year subscription to Machinerie des arts.

APPLICATION PROCESS

To apply, please complete the online application form. Refer to the Program Presentation (PDF) for all details about this partnership. During the application process, you will be asked to include the following documents:

  • An excerpt of a previously written theatrical work in English (10 pages maximum, PDF or DOC);
  • An excerpt of the project (10 pages maximum, PDF or DOC);
  • The author’s CV (PDF or DOC)

Only the required documents will be forwarded to members of the evaluation committee.

Applications will be evaluated by representatives of the CAM, PWM and La Serre. Projects will be evaluated based on merit, and the selection will take the projects’ comparative value into consideration. The evaluation committee will take into consideration diversity of practice, artists’ experience, accessibility needs, 2SLGBTQQIPAA+, and gender parity.

The deadline to submit applications is October 30, 2020 at 11:59PM. All applicants will be notified of the results by December 10, 2020.

2020 COLE FOUNDATION MENTORSHIP FOR EMERGING TRANSLATORS

Deadline extended to October 18!

The translation of new work for the stage is a core part of Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal’s (PWM) programming. Since its inception in 2013, the Mentorat pour traductrices et traducteurs émergents de la Fondation Cole (formerly Cole Competition for Emerging Translators) has been guiding the next generation of translators from French into English. 

With the expert guidance of acclaimed translator Maureen Labonté and in partnership with the Fondation Cole, PWM has built a program that mentors emerging translators through every stage of the process. The successful applicant to this year’s mentorship program will receive a $1,000 honorarium and an eight-month mentorship with Maureen Labonté which includes a workshop with actors and a public reading.

WHO CAN APPLY?

To be eligible, emerging translators must have completed at least one translation which has received a public reading, publication or production. Because the focus is on developing translators, the applicant must not have done more than three translations. 

WITH WHAT PLAY(S)?

Before applying for the Mentorship, emerging translators must choose the play they wish to translate and contact the playwright for permission: Establishing a connection to the play and the playwright in advance means that the applicant is already invested in the proposed work and would be in a position to begin work immediately following the announcement of the selected project.

Translations must be from French into English only. 

Full-length scripts, one acts or theatre for young people are all welcome. Please note, our expertise does not extend to the translation of musicals.

SOUTIEN FOURNI

The recipient of the program will receive $1000 honorarium, dramaturgical support from renowned translator, Maureen Labonté, and a translation workshop with actors.

Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal (PWM) est un centre national de développement théâtral et scénique dirigé par une équipe de conseiller.ère.s dramaturgiques et d’administrateurs culturels. Si l'écriture dramatique est au cœur de ce que nous faisons depuis plus de 50 ans, notre travail s'efforce désormais d'inclure des créations interdisciplinaires. En plus de promouvoir les collaborations entre diverses traditions artistiques, nous nous engageons fermement à soutenir des œuvres reflétant un large éventail d’identités culturelles et d’expériences vécues. 

Accueillant entre 10 et 15 artistes, collectifs et compagnies par an, Alliance est un programme de soutien aux artistes unique en son genre visant à éliminer les obstacles systémiques et structurels qui font barrage à leur pleine participation aux arts. Quels que soient leurs champs artistiques, Alliance offre aux participant.es une allocation de fonds et un accompagnement sur mesure, modulables en fonction des besoins et des désirs d’apprentissage et de création de chacun.e d’entre eux.

Résidence de Traduction Glassco 2020

La Résidence de Traduction Glassco 2020 est organisée par Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal, en partenariat avec la Fondation Cole,et le soutien des amis et de la famille de Bill Glassco.

*MISE À JOUR COVID-19 – 16 JUIN 2020*
Après quatorze ans de programmation, nous avons pris la décision difficile de suspendre la résidence pour la saison 2020.

Après une analyse approfondie de la situation à Tadoussac, au Québec et partout au Canada, nous savons que c'est la bonne voie à suivre. Nous n'avons pas été en mesure de concevoir une résidence en personne tout en respectant les consignes de santé publique pour le rassemblement sous un même toit.

Nous avons pensé qu'il était important de maintenir l'intégrité de la résidence, centrée sur le rassemblement de dramaturges et de traducteurs en un même endroit pour approfondir la pratique de la traduction sur scène. Nous sommes impatients d'accueillir à nouveau les traducteurs et créateurs au Chalet Fletcher en juin 2021.

En lieu et place de la résidence de cette année, nous commençons à planifier une rétrospective virtuelle de la Résidence de Traduction Glassco qui accueillera les leçons apprises des anciens participants. Nous publierons plus de détails dans les prochains mois.

*MISE À JOUR COVID-19 – 26 Mars 2020*
Le niveau d'incertitude entourant le coronavirus et les restrictions de voyage nous empêchent de poursuivre le processus de sélection. Nous avons donc décidé que la mesure la plus responsable consiste à retarder la sélection jusqu'à ce que des données plus fiables soient disponibles.
Nous reviendrons fin avril avec plus de détails.


La Résidence de Traduction Glassco invite des auteurs dramatiques et des traducteurs de tout le Canada et d'ailleurs à se rendre ensemble à Tadoussac, Québec, pour travailler en profondeur leurs projets de traduction ou d’adaptation.

Les participants sélectionnés se voient ainsi offerts une occasion unique de se concentrer sur leurs projets et de partager leurs expertises dans une ambiance unique. Les traductions dans toutes langues sont les bienvenues. Au cours des quinze dernières années nous avons soutenu plus de 63 projets de traduction vers le cantonnais, le catalan, le crie, l'anglais, le français, l'innu aimun, l'italien, le portugais, l'espagnol, le tamoul, le tagolog, et l'urdu.

Cette saison, nous accueillerons la traductrice réputée Maryse Warda, qui assurera les rôles d'hôte de résidence et de conseillère dramaturgique.

Nous acceptons maintenant les projets de pièces prêtes à la traduction. Veuillez noter que nous ne finançons pas les traductions. Les pièces doivent, idéalement, avoir été produites dans leur version originale. Au moins un des éléments du projet doit être canadien. Nous encourageons grandement les artistes autochtones à soumettre leurs projets.

Pour postuler, veuillez nous faire parvenir :
  • Une description du projet incluant les noms du traducteur et de l’auteur, ainsi que les attendus de la résidence pour le projet, et toutes les informations relatives à une éventuelle production;
  • Biographies of both the playwright and translator;
  • Un exemplaire de la pièce dans sa langue originale.

Un des critères de sélection des projets est la possibilité pour l’auteur et son traducteur de participer ensemble, en même temps, à la résidence.

Chaque participant recevra un honoraire de 750 $. De plus, tous les frais de voyage, de repas et d’hébergement sont couverts.

Submission deadline: March 2nd, 2020

Veuillez soumettre vos projets par courriel (Format PDF, 1 fichier seulement) à residency@playwrights.ca avec le sujet : Candidature à la résidence de Traduction Glassco 2020.

Pour toute question, veuillez communiquer avec Emma Tibaldo à emma@playwrights.ca.

Plus d'information sur la Résidence de Traduction Glassco ici.

Accessibilité : 

La résidence a lieu dans une maison en bois rond du 18e siècle, à Tadoussac, au Québec. Un escalier de 8 marches mène à l’entrée de la maison. Les salles de bain ne sont pas accessibles aux fauteuils roulants.


La Résidence de traduction Glassco à Tadoussac est rendue possible grâce à notre partenariat avec le Programme de Conversations Interculturelles de la Fondation Cole, au dévouement de la productrice de la résidence Briony Glassco, ainsi qu'aux donations à la mémoire du grand artiste théâtral canadien Bill Glassco. Nous sommes également reconnaissants envers le Conseil des arts du Canada, le Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec et le Conseil des arts de Montréal pour leur soutien continu.
