Workshop at the Chinese Community Centre Birmingham

  • Chinese Community Centre 99 Bradford Street, Birmingham B12 0NS United Kingdom (map)

An introduction of FromShoreToShore and the 3 stories in the play using Cantonese.

Participants were invited to share their experience and stories of their past and coming over to the UK. There was some karaoke of their favourite Chinese songs and also harking back to the songs that reminded them of their youth.

The main aim of this workshop is to encourage them to see FromShoreToShore as many had never attended theatre plays. Many participants were Cantonese speaking so by explaining the plot to them in their own language, it is hoped they are more attracted to see the play and will also understand the English part of the story.

Chinese tea and traditional snacks were provided during the workshop.

This workshop was delivered by Sinman Yue who did a brilliant job explaining the story and interviewing the participants, and also Michelle Yim who had fun singing with everyone.
