Join us in an attempt to decode the Chinese Monkey God through 500 years of history. Writer Wayne Burrows traces this curious cultural journey, from Wu Cheng's Journey to the West, written in 1590, and arguably the first road novel, through English poet Arthur Waley, the Japanese music scene of the 60s, the cult of martial arts master Bruce Lee — all the way to the global impact of the 70s TV series. The evening will include a screening of Monkey and Chinese folk music in Cafe.Bar.Contemporary. To book, please use the link below.
