Can humor establish a dialogue between different cultures and languages?
Is it actually possible to translate comedy?
To find out, we have Transquips, a multicultural and multilingual comedy show!
Using humor as an unbiased and inclusive platform, Transquips invites people to deliver a comedic performance in different languages, with a real-time translation.
