It has been a long while since I’ve last posted. The last year or so has been tough for all of us, and have fallen behind a little with the website. For more recently personal posts, please go to my Twitter and Instagram handle which is @ruthchanmusic for both.
It has been an interesting 2022 so far. Earlier in June, I has the privilege to work on one of the official Jubilee pageant ‘shows’ which was on The Hatchling (premiered in 2021); involving a giant dragon puppet, a dancer and recording a beautiful soprano (Angela Hicks).
Then in August, after a 2 year delay due to you know what…, Doncastrian Chalk Circle, a new musical theatre adaptation of Brecht’s classic play, a National Theatre Public Acts productions with Cast from Doncaster, was performed for the Bank holiday weekend with a community and professional cast of over a hundred, along with local performing groups: CARLTON MAIN FRICKLEY COLLIERY BAND, All That Jazz, South Yorkshire’s Drag queen Miss Smoochie and members of Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus. It was an absolute joy and privilege to work on; an experience I’ll never forget.
I have various things brewing and developing in my creative pot atm. But my next show will be Further than the Furthest Thing by Zinnie Harris at the Young Vic in spring 2023: https://www.youngvic.org/whats-on/further-than-the-furthest-thing I can’t wait! x
