Bound Feet Blues is Yang-May's personal story centred on the tradition of foot binding, as practiced by her great-grandmother. This unconventional memoir interweaves Yang-May's story with those of the women in her family to create a rich, engaging show. Bound Feet Blues explores Yang-May's experiences of being a Chinese-Malaysian woman in the UK, her unique 'coming out' story, cultural reflections of what it means to be a woman, and an exploration into mother-daughter relationships. Female desirability, identity and empowerment are explored in this personal story told through the shoes in Yang-May's life - from stilettos and expensive Italian pumps to trainers, hiking boots and biker boots.
