Jockey Club Local Creative Talent Series Hong Kong Odyssey
Moments of Hong Kong – Poetry Salon
Concert / Talk

Poetry is not just a reflection of oneself, but also of the era in which it is written. Hong Kong has undergone tremendous changes over the centuries; how do our poets respond to the good and bad moments? Local poet Liu Wai-tong, the literary consultant of Hong Kong Odyssey will share his works, as well as the poems adapted for the concert. Accompanied by improvised music, this evening will take you through 200 years of Hong Kong in poetry.
