GIRL POWER The all-female theatre troupe Shakespeare's Wild Sisters Group from Taipei presents the new production Emily Dickinson, in which the troupe puts the works of the renowned poetess on stage with physical movement. Born in 1830 in Massachusetts, Dickinson is the best-known American poetess. She devoted her life to reading and writing, resulting in 1,776 poems, but only seven were published anonymously during her lifetime. Led by pioneering director Wei Ying-chuan, five performers from the troupe will recite Dickinson's poems concerning women's issues such as relationships and self-image. The performance is in Mandarin at the Hong Kong Arts Centre's McAulay Studio from today to Saturday at 7.45pm, with a matinee on the last day at 2.45pm. A meet-the-artist session will be held after the first performance. Tickets are $120 (adults) and $60 (students) at HK Ticketing on 31 288 288.
