PR in China at Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, 16 February 2017 - Book now

PR in China will look at the (mis)representations of Chinese people in theatre and films, including Yellow Face Theatre. The event will use bass singer, actor and political activist who was blacklisted during the McCarthy era Paul Robeson’s learning journey and identity quest as a starting point. Robeson wrote: “as I plunged, with excited interest, into my studies of Africa at the London School of Oriental Language, I came to see that African culture was indeed the treasure-store for the world […] I came to learn of the remarkable kinship between African and Chinese culture (of which I hope to write at length some day)”.
