Event description

Description

Speakeasy is a variety club for lovers of languages. Whether you are monolingual or polyglot, a speaker, a reader, a teacher, a translator, a tourist industry professional or just an enthusiastic listener, come along and join what we hope will grow into a ‘language-positive’ community in London. We’ll be parsing this year’s Being Human Festival keywords, Hope and Fear, to explore their meanings across different languages. There will be live on-stage translation of crime fiction (fear!), wordy jokes (hope!), and plenty of anecdotes from research into the world’s language and cultures by LAHP’s PhD students and staff. [Foreign Affairs], East London’s International Theatre Company, will be providing some multilingual drama.
