The other shore : plays by Xingjian Gao( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Gao Xingjian won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000, he became the only Chinese writer to achieve such international acclaim. The Chinese University Press is the first publisher of his work in the English language. Indeed, The Other Shore is one of the few works by the author available in English today. The Other Shore: Plays by Gao Xingjian contains five of Gao's most recent works: The Other Shore (1986), Between Life and Death (1991), Dialogue and Rebuttal (1992), Nocturnal Wanderer (1993), and Weekend Quartet (1995). With original imagery and in beautiful language, these plays illuminate the realities of life, death, sex, loneliness, and exile. The plays also show the dramatist's idea of the tripartite actor, a process by which the actor neutralizes himself and achieves a disinterested observation of his self in performance. An introduction by the translator describes the dramatist and his view on drama
Snow in August by Xingjian Gao( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Snow in August is based on the life of Huineng (AD 633-713), the Sixth Patriarch of Zen Buddhism in Tang Dynasty China. Packed with the myriad sights and sounds of both the Eastern and Western theatrical traditions, the play exudes wonder and mysticism. The many koan cases and the story of Huineng's enlightenment afford the audience fascinating vignettes of Gao's vision of life and existence - an awareness of the Void and the need for a personal peace with oneself."--Jacket
Escape, &, the man who questions death by Xingjian Gao( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection contains two plays by Gao Xingjian, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2000. Escape was written in 1989 in the wake of the June 4 Student Movement in Tiananmen Square in Beijing. With the publication ofo the play, Gao was expelled from the Chinese Communist Party, dismissed from his state appointment and ahd his house in Beijing confiscated. Perhaps because of this controversy, Escape has become the most performed of all of Gao's plays: it has been staged in Sweden, Germany, Belgium, France, Poland, Japan, Ivory Coast, Tunisia, and Canada. Wherever it was staged, it was given a locally relevant intepretation and was well received, which lends credence to Gao's claim of the universality of the play he describes as the tragedy of modern man. The Man Who Questions Death is the latest of Gao's plays. It is also one of the most exciting and powerful."--Jacket
Leng de wen xue : Gao Xingjian zhu zuo xuan by Xingjian Gao( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in Chinese and English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gao Xingjian, 2000 winner of the Noble Prize for Literature, approaches his writing with a strong conviction of the purity of literature and of its dignity as art. The result is what he calls "Cold Literature": it is personal, detached, apolitical and antipathetic to noise, yet it is also compelling and capable of engaging the reader with an enthralling cogency. The present anthology contains many gems of Gao's works, which present an all-round picture of Gao and his many talents, as novelist, playwright, poet, painter and theorist. They lead the reader into a world that is uniquely his, the quest for the self and its salvation, the depth of his understanding of the tragedy of modern man and finally, the dignity of being human. Cold Literature also brings together for the first time two English translators of Gao Xingjian's works, Gilbert C.F. Fong and Mabel Lee. Some of the translations in this collection are newly produced, and others have been revised, so that the beauty and musicality of Gao's language are revealed in Chinese as well as in English."--Book cover

City of the dead & song of the night by Xingjian Gao( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

City of the Dead and Song of the Night are two plays by Gao Xingjian, the Nobel laureate, which create new modes of theatrical presentation by experimenting with prose and poetry. In City of the Dead, Gao employs traditional Chinese opera techniques that combine singing with dialogue, movement, and martial arts into a modern play. Song of the Night, conceived as a poem-play with dance, uses one female actor and two female dancers to represent the subjective self of the contemporary woman, divided into the "I" and the "she." These two plays advance Gao's theatrical experiments in dramatic prose across linguistic and cultural boundaries

International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong 2015, "Poetry and Conflict," explores the multi-layered relationships between poetry and war. Acclaimed poets from war-troubled countries past and present engage "war" as a topic in their works, exchanging views and exploring the complex ways in which poetry has been able to play a role in the most violent events in human history. In doing so, they encourage the writers and readers of war-free Hong Kong to reflect upon the local milieu in a global framework
