Here is short video about Yellow Earth Academy
"The course far exceeded my expectations. The tutors were brilliant; very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about teaching us and as a result, we gained so much from it. My expectations were more than met - I found it intensely interesting, immersive and a very creative two weeks."
Yellow Academy 2013 participant
Our 2015 Yellow Earth Academy culminated with an impressive public presentation by the students. 16 brave and talented students undertook an intensive course in movement, voice, acting for camera, auditions techniques and text work led by David Lee -Jones and Lab Ky Mo from Yellow Earth and tutors from ALRA.
The 2014 participants all got the opportunity to perform in Yellow Earth's large scale promenade production of The Last Days of Limehouse. A play inspired by the places, stories and characters from London’s first Chinatown in Limehouse. Participants took classes in voice, movement and dance, and then worked as an ensemble with the Associate Director to develop their own characters from archive and research material and rehearse and perform with the professional cast.
16 people completed YEA2013 with a focus on acting for camera. Participants worked with award winning film maker Lab Ky Mo to create two short films No Jet Li and God Speaks Chinese. View God Speak Chinese here:
