Mutual Love Society II

Program title: Mutual Love Society II

Date: May 22, 2015, Sunday

Time: 5.30pm – 7pm

Poetry and wine were central to the relationship of Chinese revolutionary, feminist and poet Qiu Jin and her intimate friend, the calligrapher Wu Zhiying.

For the finissage of Duilian, we invited two Hong Kong feminist poets Cao Shuying and Sonia Wong to host the Mutual Love Society II, a special evening of poetry appreciation dedicated to the spirit of Qiu Jin and Wu Zhiying. Cao and Wong will share their own poems on themes of female desire and subjectivity, and guide participants in a new round of (mis)translation. Bring your pen and your wit.

Special thanks to MCCM Creations.
