International Echoes

'alone in the city' goes to argentina

‘Alone In The City’ was featured in the theatre production ‘Luz Verde’, which was staged in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 20 and 27 November 2012.

Theatre in Translation (Teatro en Traducción) is hosted by Proyecto 34°S, an independent organisation that produces festivals and events, with a focus on contemporary performing arts and active artistic exchange between the diverse people and cultures of Africa and Latin America. The specific aim of this project is to encourage the exchange and appreciation of written theatre plays from Africa and Latin America, recognising and rewarding quality, originality and cultural diversity whilst also bridging the language gap through means of translation and actively promoting and ensuring free electronic access to the selected plays by local and international readers.

“Mike van Graan’s Green Man Flashing won the South African leg of the project, and was translated into Spanish by Patricia Labastie, under the title “Luz Verde”, and performed by a local cast in Beunos Aires featuring ‘Alone In The City’ as part of the theatrical soundtrack.
