Translation

I have been translating works for theatre for many years and also specialise in translating poetry. I also work with writers, film directors, essayists and visual artists.

The majority of listed translations were commissioned by entities including: The Hanoch Levin Institute of Israeli Drama, Habima National Theatre, The Cameri Theatre,  Gesher Theatre. To date, my translations have been staged in countries including the United States, United Kingdom, Israel and the Philippians.
