Written to open the Field Day Theatre Company in Derry, Northern Ireland, Translations critically explores how a colonial empire rewrites the physical, social, and cultural landscape in the language of power, simultaneously erasing the history of the people it subjects to rule. Sharon Fogarty, director, and Hana Worthen, dramaturg, whose last production at Barnard was Faust 2.0, collaborate on this modern historical parable of the brutality of rule.
