My Little Enlightenment Plays
A series of three keenly unfaithful ‘translations’ of—or star-gazing conversations with—some Enlightenment tragedies, pseudo-scientific writings, and philosophical treatises by Friedrich Schiller, Denis Diderot, Margaret Cavendish, Bernar Fontenelle, Goethe, Lessing, Gellert, Olympe de Gouges, among others. I was interviewed about the project for 3:AM. The second piece, Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers, was published by Gauss PDF in June 2017. An extract from Emilia Galotti’s Colouring Book of Feelings appeared in Feminist Temporalities.
