Lighting up the Chinese Arch, the Black-E and The Arch for an hour each night, this huge and beautiful lumiere creation was based on the story of the an emperor’s daughter who, after perishing at sea, transformed into a bird and endeavoured to fill the ocean with twigs and stones to prevent anyone else from meeting the same fate.  The story was then adapted to showcase how Chinatowns in Liverpool, and around the world, have developed from the seeds sown and the pebbles laid by the earliest Chinese settlers, and how these small ‘islands’ have developed into the vibrant and diverse communities we see today.

 

It was a fascinating project, working closely with Pagoda Arts, First Take and others to weave together many celebratory elements of the Chinese community in Liverpool into a light and sound spectacle.
