We might sense this in the relationship between words and movement in her choreopoems, or in the multilingual worlds Shange brings to life in her books, drawing on a range of languages, among them Gullah and Spanish. This year, a group of Barnard students have taken on the ambitious work of translating Ntozake Shange's words into multiple languages through the project The Love Space Demands: Ntozake Shange in Translation and Design. Alejandro Álvarez Nieves, translator of a collection of Shange's poems into Spanish (Belleza Salvaje / Wild Beauty 2017), facilitated a translation workshop and brought his knowledge and expertise to the project. Join us for an informal celebration of this continuing process! A Zoom link will be sent the morning of June 11, 2021. Zoom Barnard College barnard-admin@digitalpulp.com America/New_York public
