Break Out (4): Mutsuo Takahashi (Japan) and Tian Yuan (China)

Break Out: IPNHK Reading & Dialogue Series

Break Out: IPNHK Reading & Dialogue Series is a virtual extension of the International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong (IPNHK). Break Out series will invite world-renowned poets to lead readers out of the perceived hopelessness. Poetry has the potentials to give expression to this complex global trauma through connecting elevated words to knocked-down worlds, to break us out from psychological isolation by liberating imagination, and most of all to heal the soul of humanity. The first phase of the Break Out series from May to September 2021 consists of 7 online poetry readings by Shuntaro Tanikawa (Japan), Tian Yuan (China), Adonis (Syria), Jan Wagner (Germany), Bejan Matur (Turkey), Nikola Madzirov (North Macedonia), Forrest Gander (USA), Bei Dao (China), Mang Ke (China), Xi Chuan (China), and Zhou Yunpeng (China).
