A theatre-led interactive presentation titled ‘Staging China’ is to be held as a free event as part of the Performing China on the Global Stage: People, Society and Culture symposium.
The presentation will be led by theatre professionals and researchers, and will take place in two parts as follows:
The Orphan of Zhao: from 5BC China to 21st century Stratford-upon-Avon
