Distinguished translator of postwar German plays Anthony Vivis, who has died suddenly aged 70, was a renowned translator of postwar German plays that habitually documented mythical misery in the urban jungle while relating to the ingrained tradition of Brecht, Georg Buchner, Gerhart Hauptmann and Schiller. In an age when it is sometimes difficult to apportion blame or praise to a "new version" from a foreign language - since the British playwright is either cribbing from an expert's literal translation, or using other published sources - Vivis's integrity and expertise in what he called "re-creative" playwriting were both paramount and obvious. In a distinguished career that took him from a publishing house in Berlin to a small office above the Fortune theatre in Covent Garden as the Royal Shakespeare Company's dramaturge at the end of the 1960s, then on to the BBC radio drama department and a fellowship at the University of East Anglia, he never flinched from practical spoken solutions to the problems of recreating a social milieu, or a demotic, working-class argot, and did so with some flair and brilliance. His best-known titles as translator include Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Bitter Tears of Petra von KANT (starring Delphine Seyrig at the New End, Hampstead, in 1976), Manfred Karge's The Conquest of the South Pole (with Alan Cumming at the Traverse in Edinburgh in 1988), Botho Strauss's The Park, a brilliANT reworking of A Midsummer Night's Dream in a concrete dystopia (directed by Steven Pimlott at the Sheffield Crucible in 1988) and Franz Xaver Kroetz's Through the Leaves, which featured Ken Stott and Eileen Nicholas at the Traverse in 1985 and Simon Callow and Ann Mitchell at the Southwark Playhouse (transferring to the West End) in 2003. Some of those plays were collaborations with his second wife, Tinch Minter, in the 1980s. But his work was also increasingly diffused in surgeries, seminars and workshops in Norwich and Newcastle, and he worked closely with WG Sebald, the founding director of the British Centre for Literary Translation, whose robust views on the lack of sensitive translations into English from foreign languages he shared. Vivis, who traced his own family back to German/Swiss origins in the early 19th century, was the third of four children of Mary and Victor, an RAF flight lieutenant. Anthony was born in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, near the RAF college at Cranwell; after the second world war, his father became a civilian radio instructor there. The family moved to Locking in Somerset (with another RAF posting), Weston-super-Mare and, finally, Marlow in Buckinghamshire. Vivis, a conspicuously bright boy, was educated atSir William Borlase's grammar school in Marlow and Clare College, Cambridge, where he studied modern and medieval languages, followed by a postgraduate theatre course at Bristol University. His academic career ran parallel with his practical work in the theatre, which came into focus with The Bitter Tears of Petra von KANT (a play before it was a film), followed by the same playwright's Bremen Coffee at the Traverse in 1977; this was horrifying realism, the tale of a 19th-century woman who systematically poisoned 15 people and sang glorious hymns afterwards. Looking back, it is amazing how funny and uplifting a lot of this miserable stuff was: the human condition celebrated in social quirkiness and sexual perversity, no more vividly than in his riveting translation of Karge's solo show, Man to Man, also premiered at the Traverse (in 1987) with an amazing Tilda Swinton adopting the persona of her dead husband in order to get work; the play has just been successfully revived at the Mercury theatre in Colchester, with Tricia Kelly donning the boiler suit. And what about Kroetz's Dead Soil at the Leicester Haymarket in 1992, in which a peasANT girl's miscarriage was stuffed into the maggoty womb of her own dead grandmother? You sometimes feared for a writer's sanity in charting the extremities of such Teutonic angst and self-immolation, only to realise that essential horrible truths about ourselves were also being discussed. Vivis had a special relationship with the tiny Gate in Notting Hill, west London, too, providing, to quote the critics, flinty, muscular, loosely colloquial and rough and rural translations of Martin Sperr's Hunting Scenes from Lower Bavaria (co-written with John Grillo), in an audacious promenade production by Dominic Cooke in 1995. The following year came another Cooke "special" - the audience were seated around an oblong pit, staring down at two dozen cramped actors - Hauptmann's The Weavers, a 19th-century classic that established beyond all possible doubt that the Silesian cotton workers were indeed revolting. Vivis translated countless German poems, including those of the painter Egon Schiele, and wrote dramatic monologues, learned articles in the Times Literary Supplement, several original radio plays of his own, and two importANT essays on German drama in the Oxford Guide to Literature in Translation. His first marriage was to Jenny Otterley; both marriages ended in divorce. He is survived by two older sisters; a younger brother predeceased him. o Charles Anthony Vivis, writer and translator, born 22 April 1943; died 6 October 2013.

Bitter Tears Of Petra Von Kant, The

Synopsis:
Petra is a woman in control - a successful fashion designer who lives with her slavish, suffering assistant Marlene. But when Petra meets beautiful Karin - part protEgE, part pet, she falls hopelessly in love with her and the power of the relationship begins to shift. The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant is a modern tragedy of power, desire and obsession. Sometimes surreal, expressionist and dreamlike.

Blood On the Neck Of the Cat

Synopsis:
Oh, poor Phoebe . . . dropped, half-naked, into a cocktail party with no language to call her own. How will she possibly get by? Maybe if she listens to the people attending this party-the Teacher, the Policeman, the Soldier, the Gigolo, the Young Girl, the Mistress, the Butcher, and the Model, their hostess-she might learn something about Human Language, and Human Democracy. Nope, that doesn't seem to be working. Maybe if she puts the partygoers through a series of scenes in which they playact typical Human interactions she will understand? Nope. Maybe if she joins the party and tries to fake it with what she's learned? Nope. It appears that Phoebe Zeitgeist will have to take a more direct route, right into the jugular vein, to suck what she needs to know about Human Language out of these oh-so-polite celebrants . . .

Notes:
Original Playwright - Rainer Werner Fassbinder. Also known As Marilyn Monroe vs. the Vampires, Rainer Werner Fassbinder's 1971 play Blood on the Cat's Neck is A savage satire of bourgeois manners And the bourgeois Comedy of Manners. One of Fassbinder's Antitheater works, it suggests that knowledge of A human being-any human being-through language Alone is impossible, And that perhaps theatre itself is pointless As A means of Actually communicating real ideas About people. A madcap, hysterical farce of high And low humor that features horrible physical And psychic violence, cruelty, murder, unscrupulous business dealings, And lots And LOTS of blood. Yes, LOTS And LOTS of blood."

Man To Man

Man To Man
Set in Germany between 1930 and the 1980s, Man to Man is based on the fascinating true story of an ordinary working-class woman who, in order to survive in the Germany of the Weimar Republic and of Hitler, simply takes on the clothes and the identity of her husband.

Sugar Dollies

Sugar Dollies
Rosy, an unemployed actress, Babette and daughter Tabea, dressed as Batman and Robin, and Margot from former East Germany come together in a run-down hotel to be part of the casting for new candidats for "Sugar Dollies", a popular TV show about dating games and marriage. Viola Pfauweber, a Munich casting agent, will decide who will suit the demands and needs of the TV nation best. there is the usual course of cynicism, misunderstanding and exclusion, but things get rather stormy when Rosy brings up the cosmos, the Amazons, God, her pitbull terrier and, indeed, Adolf Hitler. "Sugar Dollies" is a declaration of love to madness, women and the magic, power and anarchy of the theatre.

Through the Leaves

Through the Leaves
Through the Leaves is the story of butcher Martha and her lover Otto. Although Martha dotes on Otto, answering to his every want and whim, he offers her nothing but his very presence and sex.

Tom Fool

Synopsis:
Franz Xaver Kroetz's superb 1978 play Tom Fool takes us back to the moment when women finally began to change the rules of the game. Liam Brennan's Otto Meier is a superb portrait of what still passed, in 1970s Germany, for an ordinary working man. Obsessed with the minute hierarchies of his factory workplace, used to taking his wife Martha completely for granted and inclined to see his stroppy 16-year-old son as a rival rather than a child in his care, Otto finds his world shattered when a terminal row with his son drives Martha to pack her bag and leave, leaving him alone to deal with the insecurities and alienations of his working life. In 20-odd powerful scenes, each with a title like a sitcom episode, Kroetz charts this story of breakdown with a wonderful, rich yet cold-eyed hyperrealism that is his hallmark, and without a hint of polemic, either way.
