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.
