Mining the rich multi-lingual heritage of Singapore, literary translators working in Chinese, Malay and Tamil will read from their translations of an extract from Meira Chand’s A Different Sky. In so doing, they throw up the challenges one faces when translating cultural context and ask whether translations can lead to more conversations between the various language communities in Singapore.
This programme will be in English, with multi-lingual readings.
