Dong Di Yin 2017


Dong Di Yin 2017: Gari, Tari… Lari

“In turmoil, poetry rises.”  That’s the Chinese idiom.  Hence, here we are again.

After nearly 30 years since its inception, Dong Di Yin has further evolved in year 2017.  In addition to poetry recital, Ling Tang, the Director, is infusing various theatrical elements into the poets’ performances. For the first time in Malaysia, this is a play written in poetry, and performed by the poets themselves.

(and for the first time, with English subtitle)

The theme “Gari, Tari…Lari” hints at the imprisoned yet uncompromising souls of the poets. Come witness how we dance… and escape…
