I am super excited to report that we are taking Bound Feet Blues to London’s West End for a showcase performance in October!
I will be performing the full 75 mins version – for one night only – as a work-in-progress showcase at the Tristan Bates Theatre on Mon 13 Oct 2014 @8pm. This will present the full story, building on the draft extract that I tried out at Conway Hall in March and will take the piece to its full conclusion.
If you came along Conway Hall, you saw the piece end with me on my knees in defeat, with my heart as broken as the broken bound feet of my great grandmother in China. The upcoming showcase in October will lead these interwoven stories out from the darkness to new beginnings.
Come and see the show…
