February saw the publication in China of the play script ’DREAMING Under the Southern Bough’ which I wrote with collegue Adam Strickson. the play underwent a number of revisions from its first outing in Leeds in mid 2016. By the time the show toured China in Autumn 2016 the script was starting to look and feel much more like the play I imagined. I still feel like the play is unfinished business and the UK script contains further notes and stage directions (should it ever get published). I'm considering an anthology of Chinese translations so maybe it really is unfinished business.
I also contributed to two academic articles about intercultural theatre and working on classical Chinese text that were published in February. Most unusual!
