Paul Robeson in China

  • to
  • The Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art

    13 Thomas St, Manchester (map)

    53.484741 -2.237488

  • Tickets are free and available at:

    PR IN CHINA will look the (mis)representations of Chinese people in theatre (inc. Yellow Face Theatre) + films from a local perspective - using Paul Robeson's learning journey + identity quest as starting point.
    Robeson writes " and as I plunged, with excited interest, into my studies of Africa at the London School of Oriental Languages, 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 + Chinese culture (of which I hope to write at length some day)".
    Convened by Dominique Tessier
