Project

The general purpose of my project is translation from the Polish language into Ukrainian, as well as scientific study of Sławomir Mrożek's plays, whose plays have a long and successful history of translations and theatrical productions in Spain. I see one of the main goals of my project as researching the literatures of the Catalan countries, which are not well known in my country, such as the literature of Catalonia, or completely unknown, such as the literature of Andorra. My translation with a preface will be published in December 2023 within the “Theatrical Collection” at the Anetta Antonenko Publishing House, where I manage the "Theatrical Collection" series, as well as other projects, as well as their wide promotion in theaters in Ukraine. 4 plays by Catalan authors that I will select will be published in this publishing house as well The long-term result should be further publications by authors from Catalonia and Andorra.
