About the event: Pine Air, You & I Arts Café in partnership with Mary Therese Kurkalang brings a unique event of poetry, translation and music. We are happy to host this event which is the culmination of a residency project that Mary has been working in collaboration with the Goethe-Instut/Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai on poetry translation between Germany and South Asian countries. The main objective of this project is to create cultural bridges and understanding using poetry as a medium. So far the project has worked with over 50 poets and 20 languages across countries.
The project involves a residency in which poets and translators live together and translate each other’s poetry directly from one language to the other. In this edition, the project has brought together Khasi, Assamese and German contemporary poets to live together, and translate each other’s poetry, with the facilitation of interlinear translators.
