We are happy to be included in @ldn_gov ‘s London Unseen tours.
Come join this live immersive audio tour through Chinatown with augmented reality visuals and miniature dramas behind the facades.! (Limited space available.)
Augmented Chinatown 2.0 is an app from the UK’s leading platform for British Chinese artists, Chinese Arts Now (CAN), producers and creators of art telling Chinese stories in contemporary and innovative ways.
London’s Chinatown, and the area it sits in, has been the stage for a multitude of stories over its constantly evolving history. Augmented Chinatown 2.0 brings some of those stories to life in an immersive augmented reality experience that mixes striking visuals, miniature audio dramas, atmospheric music and a guided tour through the area’s past and present and how it became the centre of the Chinese community in London.
CAN Artistic Director and composer – An-Ting Chang and the Augmented Chinatown 2.0 app developer and AR artist – Donald Shek, will guide you on the tour, starting from Newport place and walking the streets. The tour will focus on Chinatown’s history, architecture and culture, as well as ideas about belonging, identity and migration.
The app is available on Google Play and the App Store.
