The Literature & Dramaturgy Lab is a multi-cultural and multi-lingual space to nurture the emergence of new voices.
The first edition, starting in January 2018, will focus on the Portuguese language and the Brazilian community in Boston.
Coordinated by playwright Ana Candida Carneiro, with the support of the Brazilian Consulate, ten Brazilian authors will be selected to develop new pieces within a variety of genres: short story, novel, movie script, theater, poetry, memoir. Ten emerging translators will be selected as well to take part in a translating workshop to translate into English the new pieces. Authors and translators will be Babel Theater Project fellows for the length of the program.
