Keep pushing your comfort zone creatively, Bound Feet Blues writer/ performer Yang-May Ooi advises storytellers [audio interview for The Story Party]

In this audio interview with Beverley Glick for The Story Pary, writer/ performer Yang-May Ooi advises storytellers that the key to creative development is to keep pushing your comfort zone.

She talks about experimentation as the starting point for her remarkable theatre piece Bound Feet Blues, which is a mix of storytelling and performance. And she urges anyone who would like to have a go at storytelling to go for it and contact The Story Party, where she will be joining Beverley Glick next year to offer coaching to would-be storytellers.
