Luàn: confusion, state of chaos, create chaos.

Dance artist Lucia Tong, Dance4 and Nottingham Trent University MA Students from multi-disciplinary backgrounds have collaborated to create this interactive exhibit. Luàn incorporates live performance, multi screen video,interactive sculptural elements, surface design, costume and sound to create a magical environment of unpredictable imagery that draws from Chinese film, forming patterns and rhythms evoking a calming environment moving in and out of chaos. The exhibit references the supernatural myths of martial arts movies as popularised in the west by films and in contrast: draws on films that represent the real life stories of human experience in China and it's history, showing struggles, sacrifices, loss and love.
