ContraDiction approved by authorities

Yi-sheng, the organizer, just notified me that ContraDiction, the gay pride reading in Singapore, will go ahead on Aug 7 (details in sidebar). We are reading in Theaterworks, a well-known local theater company, and so may reach more people than two years ago when we read in a gay bar. The program, a mix of poetry, fiction, drama, and singing, includes

1. Ng Yi-Sheng - Invocation

2. Teng Qian Xi, Standing Figure, Crossings at the Green Man, The Evolution of Language

3. Zhuang Yisa, Dog Lovers, the Tough Guys, I Sit to Write This Letter of Hurt

4. Yen Feng and Chan Sze-Wei - Poem beginning with a line by a dying man, Out of our eyes like Butterflies, Fragile grave

5. Iris Judotter (first sequence)

6.Dominic Chua - Three Sundays On, Psalm Concerning the Heartland

7. Nicholas Deroose- The Singaporean Dream

8. Koh Jee Leong - Head, Roof of the Mouth, Jaws and the Jaw-hinges, Temples, Forehead, Chin, The Finger-Nails

9. Jasmine Seah - I'm Not A Very Good Gay, In the City

10. Iris Judotter (second sequence)

11. Lee Yew Leong - Key West, 2008, Knowledge Can Change Your Fate

12. Adrianna Tan - Why I Am Still A Feminist
