NUS Arts Festival 2020: Mindscapes

March 13

$15 – $28

7.30pm, Friday, 13 March 2020

Once again, NUS Chinese Dance draws rich inspiration from the world of Chinese and Nanyang-style paintings to portray how the imagination captures moments in time within the medium of paper and ink and yet, given space for further contemplation, these works can reveal broader truths of man’s existence.

 

Under the direction of Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Ding Hong, together with the intricate choreography by guest artist Wang Cheng (China), a well-established Anhui-based National 1st Grade Choreographer, Mindscapes will be a rich multi-sensorial treat for audiences, in their response to works drawn from NUS Museum’s collection of Chinese and Nanyang-style paintings spanning the last 3 centuries.

 

From reimagining life in a more idyllic time to tracing the fine details of human connection, the evening will serve to remind us that values of good and beauty endure in a world of shifting perspectives.

 

新加坡国立大学华族舞蹈团今年将从一幅幅具有丰富色彩和文化背景的中国传统绘画和富有南洋地区特色的新加坡风土画中寻找灵感。这些画展现了画家如何以想像力冻结时间并将其渲染于纸上。而给予观者空间深思的当儿,画作也透露出人类渊源流传的美好志向。

演出由艺术总监和驻团编导丁红女士指导,配合了客卿编导王成(中国国家一级编导及安徽省舞蹈家协会主席)精细的舞蹈编排手法。受新加坡国立大学博物馆里横跨三个世纪的画作之启发的原创舞蹈作品,将提醒我们尽管时代变迁,人们崇尚优良价值观的精神不变。
