On 19 October 2019 Ilia State University Theatre played a premiere of Ilia State University Theatre Arts Programme final project “Translations” . The director of the performance is a graduate of the same programme – Luka Intskirveli who was nominated for Tsianndali Award 2018 for staging it.

1833. A little village of Baile Beag faces important changes: community school where teaching is in Gaelic, Latin and Greek shall soon be replaced by a British school within an english-language system. Army engineers arrive to translate Gaelic toponyms into understandable, refined, received English.

Is a syllable by syllable translation of culture and traditions possible at all? What is the power of language? What is an influence it has on ordinary people? If you cannot tell I love you to a beautiful girl in her own language would you love her less? Is a language enough to make once own brother, neighbour, friend understand the truth…

A dramatic story of Ireland’s “translation” resounds with a special ferocity in a country which passed through thousands of storms for preserving its own language.

The performance starts Ilia State University as well as Shota Rustaveli State University of Theatre and Film students.
