Abstract / Summary
The article describes the preparation of a new translation of Brecht's Galileo, and the issues that arose in the practical process of retranslating this onto the stage. The research imperative of the project was to investigate the questions that arise when exploring epic theatre in a postmodern context. The pedagogical aim was to engage undergraduate students as fully as possible in the complexities of Brecht's poetics. Galileo is Brecht's most reworked text, and also one of his least performed plays in Britain.
