TRANSLATING PERFORMANCE This page intentionally left blank 4 Performability in Translation Speakability? Playability? Or just Saleability? EVA ESPASA Abstract. This essay examines the changing notion of performability in stage translation, a concept which is analysed from textual, theatrical, and ideological perspectives. e. the ability to produce fluid texts which performers may utter without difficulty. From a theatrical viewpoint, the need or will to appeal to audiences usually involves a tension between foreignization and domestication.

This concept is usually applied to: 1. (From a textual viewpoint) the intention of underlining the fluency of the translated text, so that performers can utter it without unwanted effort. This is often equated with ‘speakability’ or ‘breathability’; 2. (From the viewpoint of the mise en scène) a whole set of strategies of cultural adaptation, such as replacing dialectal features of the source language by others of the target language, or omitting passages which are considered to be too rooted in the cultural linguistic context of the original (Bassnett 1985:90-91).
