CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
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.
