Piccadilly Revisited is a live multimedia piece commissioned by Chinatown Arts Space (CAS), which explores the hidden life story of the first East Asian Hollywood movie star Anna May Wong.
Using the classic silent film Piccadilly (1929) as the main platform, a new live soundtrack has been created by composers Ruth Chan and Suki Mok. Other mediums including contemporary video, narration, dance and theatre has also been entailed to enable audiences to rediscover Anna May Wong’s artistry and give voice to her silent screen persona.
Piccadilly Revisited has been performed at the Thames Festival in London, Royal Opera House, Hong Kong Arts Festival 2011, and most recently in Beijing as part of the UK Now Festival in Apr 2012. We are also planning to take the project to North America, Europe & Asia in 2013/14.
