2. China-UK Literary Theatre Exchange project
As a part of the China-UK Year of Cultural Exchange, the China-UK Literary Theatre Exchange project kicked off on March 27. Organized by Xinchan Theater in Beijing and the British Council, seven works, including Ulysses, A Journey Round James Joyce and Turn of the Screw had been staged or will be staged by Sino-British artists.
Among the shows, Ulysses was highly praised by the Chinese audience. Written by James Joyce, it is one of the greatest novels of the 20th century. Adapted for the stage and performed by Tron Theatre, it conveys the spirit of the original with a remarkable lightness of touch.
