 -The  book is in production now! It already has excellent reviews! It should be out in April:

This rozdział/chapter focuses on multilingual dramaturgies created over prolonged periods across multiple locations with different languages and people: Rimini Protokoll’s project 100% City, SignDance Collective International’s 2017 production of Carthage/Cartagena by Caridad Svich, and Anne Bérélowitch’s directorial and training practices that facilitate multilingual acting dramaturgies.

These works re-evoke tropes mentioned in previous sections, but on a very different scale, magnified through their years- and decades-long, deeply translocal, porous, nomadic, and transtemporal processes.

This creation and re-performing of dramaturgies across diverse languages and contexts repeatedly interrogates habitual modes for seeing a difference. It also involves various communities in cocreating new paradigms of otherness underpinned by gość-inność.

The interviews provide specific examples of these processes and show how the dramaturgies reimagine Europe(s) into a democratic and inclusive web of translocal connections which escapes geopolitical borders of the continent.
