The SEA Arts Fest or South East Asian Arts Festival has been a key supporter of Bound Feet Blues from the very beginning. One of the festival’s producers Annie Kwan saw writer/ performer Yang-May Ooi’s scratch night performance of the draft work in March 2014 at Conway Hall and invited Yang-May to bring it to the festival later that year.
In October 2014, Yang-May showcased the completed version Bound Feet Blues for one night only as part of the SEA Arts Fest 2014 to a sold out audience and garnered 4+ star reviews.
This year SEA Arts Fest 2015 is championing Bound Feet Blues again, scheduling the full production as part of the festival. We are grateful to festival director Hi Ching and his team for their ongoing support and enthusiasm for the show.
