The internationally renowned Chinese writer and James Joyce Award winner Yu Hua (1960) is the author of such acclaimed stories and novels as Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, Brothers and To Live, adapted for the screen by Zhang Yimou. In his new lecture for the opening of our literary season, Yu Hua talks about what it is like as a Chinese to be read outside your own linguistic and cultural area. He will then talk with Catherine Vuylsteke about his work and give his perspective on today's China in relation to the world outside. The lecture will be available in English.
Passa Porta is a member of ethical label "United Stages", which collects funds to support refugees. This evening with Yu Hua will be a "solidarity reading". Revenue will be donated to BXLREFUGEE. On the evening itself, the public too will have the opportunity to make a donation to this Citizen’s Platform for Refugee Support.
