The Program

hotINK is a curated translation residency program that brings together playwrights and translators from across the world to collaborate with New York City artists for 10 days, culminating in public readings and conversations.

Catherine Coray has been the Curator and Director of hotINK since it started at New York University in 2002. hotINK moved to The Lark in 2011. 


The Impact

This program brings international writers from a range of different countries and cultures into The Lark's community, often for the first time, and provides U.S.-based translators, actors, and directors with a rare opportunity to dig deeply into a translation process that focuses on how ideas are transmitted from one cultural context to another. We work closely with local universities, theaters, and cultural communities, as well as leading international organizations like PEN and Theater Without Borders, to reach multigenerational audiences and audiences of many cultures by providing an exciting forum to exchange ideas, practices, cultural perspectives, and personal experiences.

The Selection Process

Projects for hotINK are curated by Lark staff to support pilot international translation and exchange activities.

This program is currently on hiatus.
