Transcreating with Afeif Ismail

Transcreation is an artistic reworking of a literal translation that
aims to keep the cultural richness of the original language by working
with the creator of the text.

Here’s a radio programme about Afeif and myself and how we work together:
ABC Radio National 360 documentaries

And an interview with Afeif, Jeremy Rice and myself about the play ‘3 Seeds’ on ABC Radio’s Books and Arts Daily.
