DBLSPK is a quarterly reading series in which we present and discuss works in translation. We talk about what changes linguistically, culturally, and performatively.
Gramma by Maki Yi extends this conversation to examine the notion of intercultural theatre, with translated texts built into its conception.
Gramma is an autobiographical tale that explores cultural memories in a place of displacement through the integration of Korean traditional rituals and Western theatrical conventions. It depicts the relationship developing between two lonely persons, and addresses the possibility of human understanding and connection beyond fundamental differences.
