Theater 'Blue Stockings'

Introduction: It is 1896. Girton College, Cambridge is the first college in Britain to admit women. They study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade. The men graduate, however the women leave empty-handed, with nothing but the stigma of being a ‘blue stocking’ – an unnatural, educated woman. Principal Welsh is determined to win the women the right to graduate, whatever the cost. Set against the backdrop of women’s suffrage, this is a moving, comical and eye-opening story of women’s fight for education and self-determination.

This version has been specially adapted from our full cast production using a combination of film and live action for Tri-Campus Arts 2017.

Musicals 'Don Quixote, A Man of La Mancha’

Introduction: Based on one of the most influential readings of all times, Miguel de Cervantes’ monumental novel Don Quixote, this acclaimed musical theatre piece explores the quest of a man with an impossible dream: to right the unrightable wrong, to reach the unreachable star. A man who willingly sees giants where others just see windmills, a man who finds the extraordinary within those who thought they were just ordinary. This is the story of a knight, a gallant, a visionary.

The story of Don Quixote, A Man of La Mancha is directed by Sergio Camacho and Luis Ortega, and featuring a full cast of actors, singers, a choir and a Western and Chinese Orchestra, this musical is the new offering from Uni Per Arts, the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus Performing Arts Platform.


Tri-Campus Arts Gala Concert

Introduction: Talented student musicians from the University of Nottingham campuses in China, Malaysia and the UK join forces to present an exciting programme of music from Western and Chinese traditions. Featuring performances by the Tri-Campus Arts Orchestra, Traditional Chinese Orchestra and the Arts Choir includes two parts, Chinese traditional music and western symphony, to meet the auditory aesthetic needs of different audiences. The first part mainly focuses on western music including Beethoven Coriolan Overture, Mozart Symphony No.31 in D major, KV297 (Paris), and John Rutter Beauty of the Earth. The secondly part provides Chinese style music, such as Chinese folk song ‘Jasmine’, Liu Tieshan and Mao Yuan’s spirited and joyful ‘Dance of the Yao People’. Moreover, the Suite from the film ‘Nottingman’ by UNNC student He Minghai will also be a new interpretation. Feeling the artistic charm of the concert! Enjoying the gorgeous feast of the ears!


Introduction: What do you do when you have international guests coming to visit? How do you introduce them to Chinese culture? You tell them the wonderful tales of Sun Wukong, of course! This production, directed by Derek Irwin, was workshopped with students at UNNC from scripts developed in the Creative Writing programme at UNMC, and brought to life with a cast including those from UNUK. It incorporates some of our favourite Monkey King stories (including White Skeleton, Travel in Womenland, and True and False Monkey), bringing them to life with help from all of our international actors. Enjoy the antics of China’s top folk hero through the eyes of people seeing him for the first time!
