Intercultural Shakespeare

Anna Lo with Joseph Ricketts of ACSONI, one of our four Belfast Tempest partners, and guests Krishen and Nisha Tanden, attending Terra Nova's Belfast Tempest on the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

Anna was born in Hong Kong and worked in London for a year prior to coming to live in Northern Ireland in 1974.   She was awarded an MBE in 1999 for Services to Ethnic Minorities. In March 2007, she was elected to serve as the MLA for South Belfast for the Alliance Party, and consequently the first ethnic Chinese person to be elected to a legislative parliament in Europe.
