Bound Feet Blues secures Arts Council Funding

I am so excited that the Arts Council has granted funding for the development of Bound Feet Blues!

The funding enables us – my director Jessica Higgs and me – to work on the creation of the performance and explore the most meaningful way that the story can be brought to life on stage. Our work in progress will culminate in the showcase performance at the Tristan Bates Theatre in Oct – show details below.

One condition of the funding is that the Arts Council logo or an acknowledgement to the public funding they are giving us must appear wherever Bound Feet Blues is mentioned.  For me, it feels a privilege to be able to display their logo alongside this project – their support is a public recognition of my transition as a creative artist from book author to theatre performer. So I am delighted and proud to splash it across this blog post and in the sidebar of this website!

I am grateful to Jessica and also my producer Eldarin Yong for all their work and help in obtaining funding and in making this project this happen.
