In March 2013, Tokyo poet, Mariko Kitakubo, will revisit Australia, performing her tanka poetry bilingually with Beverley George, editor of the journal Eucalypt and President of the Australian Haiku Society 2006-10.
Tanka, meaning short songs, is a 1300 year old poetic genre from Japan, relevant to the way we think and feel today. Mariko and Beverley have performed together in Tokyo, Sydney, Canberra, and Tamworth and on the Central Coast. In late March they will perform at two venues in Adelaide.
Below are details of three events to be held in New South Wales this month.
