Liu Xiaobo Nobel Peace price winner in 2010
On the 7th of November, five actors came together in the National Poetry Library and read out poems by Liu Xiaobo and his wife Liu Xia. It was all about a love story between life, his women and his country. The event could be considered as sensitive as it is a criticism against the Chinese government.
The poems were read out in English and some of them also in Chinese. This empathised the atmosphere, even more, the visitors were feeling very emotional by the poems and the things Liu Xiaobo wrote. “In tears, I write to you again”, “I`m your lifelong prisoner”, “darkness is my destiny”. His words were considered as very emotional as Alana Falkhoff told me after the event. She also said that it was very powerful when all the actors stood up and read out the last poem.
People were left in tears after the event and really appreciated the event. The poems are so touching and emotional.
The Event was in the national Poetry Library which is based in the royal festival hall and the admission was free, taking pictures was not allowed. With his speech “No Enemies” Liu Xiaobo has set a statement all over the world
