McKenry, T. & Hong, ET. (2014). Sunday : Encounters 2014 performance. Malaysia; Australia: Bridges Collective.
Composed by: Timothy McHenry
Lyrics by: Ee Tiang Hong
Performed by: Bridges Collective
Performed at Encounters 2014, "Sunday" is based on a poem of the same name by Malayan poet Ee Tiang Hong (1933--1990). Ee was born in Malacca of Chinese ancestry during the British colonial period and later immigrated to Australia in 1975. Heavily influenced by the poetry of Dylan Thomas, W.B Yeats and T.S. Eliot, he wrote poetry in English. Much of his writings reflected the political upheavals in the newly independent Malaysia in the 1960s, particularly the racial riots of 1969. Sunday, however, is of a more pleasant nature; of a world where one can indulge on a Sunday.
