On January 15, 2013, the exhibition entitled "Cao Yu, Pioneer of Modern Drama in China" will be opened in North Campus Research Complex. Cao Yu is the founding father of modern Chinese drama, often regarded as China's most important of the 20th century. The exhibition is as much a story of modern China as it is about Cao Yu himself because his life and career exemplify the dilemmas and difficulties faced by generations of Chinese intellectuals in the twentieth century.
"Thunderstorm", Cao Yu's maiden work, and "The Savage Land", a film by Liang Zi based on the play by Cao Yu, will be screened at the U-M campus during the exhibition period, and Professor Siyuan Liu (Department of Theatre and Film, UBC) will give a presentation entitled, "From Aristotle to O'Neill: Western Influence on Cao Yu" at 4pm, February 8, 2013.
