Song of The Female Textile Workers, UK-China digital connectivity is built on the two awarded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) projects: AHRC Newton Fund Creative Economy in China, Popular Performance for New Urban Audiences: reconnecting M50 creative cluster with Shanghai All-Female Yue Opera (2018-21), and the AHRC UK-China Partnership Development Fund Bridging the Gaps: mixed reality performance of Chinese opera in Shanghai’s rural and urban heritage sites (2019 and 2020- 2023). All three projects are led by Dr. Haili Ma from the School of Performance and Cultural Industries, University of Leeds, UK.
Further information on the three projects is available on the University of Leeds website: ‘Song of the Female Textile Workers’ UK-China Digital Connectivity.
The project is continuing to develop and rehearsals for the Song of the Female Textile Workers performance are ongoing. Whilst the performance is not scheduled for completion until August 2021, the latest rehearsal footage (featuring Shanghai Yue Opera performer WANG Rousang) is available to view from Thursday 27 May 2021 on the [email protected] website.
