Dome Literary Readings: Identities

Source: Centre for the Arts, NUS

Dome Literary Readings: Identities, organised by The Centre for the Arts, NUS, will take place at Dome Café @ Kent Ridge, University Cultural Centre on 10 October 2003 from 1pm - 2pm. Admission is free.

The event features the following names in the scene: K.S. Maniam, Aaron Lee, Alvin Pang, Elangovan, Robert Yeo, Aaron Maniam, Leonora Liow, and Chong Tze Chien.

Dome Literary Readings consist of one-hour sessions offering poetry, prose or drama readings by leading personalities, established and newer writers.

The series is a means of showcasing the literary arts and highlighting current creative work in poetry, fiction and drama as well as sustaining the development of a discerning interest in literature – especially Singapore writing.

The theme, Identities, focuses on an aspect of Singapore which many of our writers have consciously or subconsciously presented in their poems, plays, short stories or novels.

In a country where there are multicultural communities still in the process of evolving a distinct national identity, the theme of identity would be a significant way of exploring the kinds of lifestyle choices and attitudes that Singaporeans have evolved via their presentation of settings, urbanscapes, symbols, recurrent images and issues, in addition to the diction, tone or perspectives evident in their corpus.

Each invited writer will present a selection of original excerpts or whole works in the course of the readings.

Mark the date for a hour’s worth of literary luncheon! Books by writers will also be on sale.

About CFA:

The Centre for the Arts, NUS (CFA) is a multi-faceted arts agency responsible for the development and administration of the campus arts groups, arts-related activities and arts facilities in the University.

Whilst CFA steers the growth of the arts in NUS, integrating and harnessing the energies of our students as they expound on different forms of artistic expressions, CFA is also evolving as a dynamic contributor and promoter of arts beyond the boundaries of the varsity.
