The second session of Reading Theatre with Science happened in Coimbra’s Jardim da Sereia, on the 21st of July 2021. There, the reading of the translation of the play “Love and information”, by Caryl Churchill, written by the Collaborative Translation Project’s volunteers, took place.

“Love and Information” is a quite experimental text from the renowned British playwright Caryl Churchill. As suggested by the title, it revolves around the subject of human relationships in the “information society”, and is made up of seven sections, each with seven scenes. With over a hundred characters, defined only by their speech in each fragment, which are invariably short and episodical, it’s a text conceived for the era of Youtube, Instagram and Twitter.

The original text, as well as the translation made by the Collaborative Translation Project, are available for consultation or borrowing on the DCPAS.
