Luan- confusion, chaos

Luan (Chinese word) has been used as the focus for the latest exhibition at Nottingham Trent. It has been interpreted through the medium of dance. On entering the exhibition space you are presented with a series of screens that have several movements of dance playing on repeat. Although not initially understanding what Luan meant- there was definitely a sense of confusion in the movement of the dancers which reflected in the mood which was created for the viewers to experience. Taking inspiration from ancient Chinese supernatural, martial art folklore the audience is immersed in this child-like world were it is hard to distinguish what is real and what is not....

As I say about all exhibitions at Bonnington, it is definitely worth a visit. It is FREE and runs until 11th May with live performances at different points. Worth a vis
