Selected Essays: Cultural Encounters 1 and 2

Nehad Selaiha, Marvin Carlson

Volume 4 and Volume 5 Nehad Selaiha’s (1945-2017) Egyptian Theatre series tries the answer the following questions: What happens to plays when presented in cultural contexts other than their own, to dramatic texts in translation, or when adapted to suit a different culture? How are they approached by directors and perceived by spectators? What expectations do audiences bring to the, or to visiting performances in alien languages? How are these expectations formed? Through what agencies? And how do they affect reception?
