The event represents a unique opportunity to bring together scholars from various disciplines of Classical Studies and other Humanities to share ideas on the playwriting of Titus Maccius Plautus, especially the performative aspects of his comedies and the process of their reception and adaptation to different languages and for the stage.


The participants are invited to fit their talk into one of the following panels:


1) Plautus on Page

Possible issues: How does the linguistics, art history, social/cultural/judicial studies, etc. contribute to our understanding of Plautine comedies as play texts? What are the sources and limits of reconstructing the actual stage practices of the ancient Roman theatre performances? Ancient intradialogical and extradialogical stage directions – how to read and understand them? And other.


2) Plautus in Translation

Possible issues: Translatorial strategies adopted in ‘bridging the gap’ between the world of Plautus, of his plays and of the target audience (different social realities, cultural tastes, taboos, etc.). Translating foreign languages in Plautus (e. g. Greek, Phoenician) for stage. Adapting Plautine humour – imagery, slapstick, language jokes, puns, speaking names, metadiscourse, etc. Verse or prose? Translating cantica. Philological (‘learned’) vs. theatre translation, and other.


3) Plautus on Stage

How to stage Plautus in the 21st century: e. g. issues of costumes, masks, music, the scope of the adaptation (‘is it still Plautus?’), intertextual and intergeneric aspects of the original in the contemporary as well as historical stage adaptations (musical, sit-com, stand-up, etc.), and other.


PRESENTATIONS


Individual 20-minute papers will be followed by 5–10 minutes of discussion. Speakers are required to supplement their talk either with an (audio)visual presentation, or a print handout. Conference language is English.
