From the organizer:
Please join us for the latest chapter of Noi Hanoi, an evening of spoken word in Vietnamese and English. This month’s reading will be slightly different from previous Noi Hanoi events. We’ll be focusing on the work of just four poets: Vietnamese writers Thuy Hang and Nha Thuyen, plus American writers Jacob Evans and Claire Barnard. Prior to the event, the four poets met to talk about each other’s work. What they will present may not be conventional translations, but will illustrate one of the many ways that poetry can be in dialogue across language and culture. The readings will be followed by a question-and-answer session plus and an open mic. Come have a drink, enjoy some poetry, and enter the tangled messy web that is translation.
