A Romance in Five Acts and Twenty-one Englishes by Nicoline van Harskamp
live translations, exhibition, publication and theatre play
This work was created in a process involving live translation, publishing and theatrical staging. At its basis is "Pygmalion – a romance in five acts", a play from 1912 by Bernard Shaw. It tells of the power relations between language, class, and gender: working class girl Liza Doolittle is attracted by the notion that Professor Higgins can raise her social standing by teaching her to speak English like a lady. But entering into a contract with him, she comes under his manipulative powers – not only her diction, but her identity is remoulded against her wishes.
