I Dream in Colour

Sunday 15 October 2023

A photo image of the right half of a young Chinese woman's face. Her eye is closed. Bright light dapples across her skin.

Extant in association with Bloomsbury Festival 2023 presents ‘I Dream in Colour’ by Jasmin Thien, an autobiographical one-woman play exploring memory, loss, and the intersection between disability and immigrant culture, drawn from Jasmin’s experiences growing up fighting eye cancer and eventually blindness as a Bruneian-born Chinese.

“When fighting for survival is who you are as a people, you can’t afford to be broken…”

Combining elements of storytelling, poetry and comedy, interwoven with voices from the past, present and future, ‘I Dream in Colour’ portrays an unapologetically raw and frequently joyful exploration of what it means to be disabled in a Chinese immigrant community combined with a celebration of what the community has to offer.

Coming to the John Lyons Theatre as part of the Bloomsbury Festival on Sunday 15 October at 4pm. Tickets cost £12 or £10 concessions – with a special discount rate for blind & visually impaired audience members when booked via Extant Theatre Club.
