Poetry Performance

The Mirror of the Heart ── The Translingual Landscape of Poetry


Saturday, Sep 23, 19:30 @ Zhongzheng Auditorium, Taipei Zhongshan Hall


Lo Si-rong has been known for putting poems into song writing. Her voice is strong and full of lyrical power. After tri-lingual album More than One featuring female poets’ works, Lo presents an on-going project “The Translingual Generation Poets,” Based on poets from the Japanese ruling to Post-War era, who used different languages to write poetry. The emotional tunes lead us to revisit an almost-forgotten part of Taiwanese literature, with the light of poetry to lit up the difficulty at the bottom of the history, and a culture impact that is still strong today. Another essential part of the opening ceremony is poetry recital. Poets from overseas and within Taiwan will recite their poems on stage, and open the festival together.
