Special forthcoming Spittunes hosted by Spittoon and NüVoices

Spittoon and NüVoices are working together to host the next Spittunes event in Beijing on August 28, and I’ve been asked along with Liane Halton to reprise our June performance, which featured two individual poems (Amazing the Ways We Hurt, What Will Save You), two songs, and three collaborative pieces (Zhuangzi Dreams of a Butterfly, Christmas alla Romana, and The Last Tribe on Earth).

Liane is a classical guitarist from South Africa (find some of her work here) who I was honored to work with, and I can’t wait to do it again. Other performing artists and poets on August 28 include Macondo, Li Wan, Wen Liang, and Lethukuhle Msimang.


The show starts at 8:30 pm (Tuesday, August 28) at Dusk Dawn Club (DDC —黄昏黎明).

Here’s a peek from our June performance. More videos later!

Spittoon is Beijing’s main stage for poetry and fiction writers, with reading nights taking place across the city and a bi-annual literary magazine that sells in outlets all over town.

Spittoon 是北京诗人与小说作家最爱的平台,在城市的每个角落他们都举行过阅读之夜的活动,以及每两年一次出版刊有优秀作品的文学杂志。
