Taiwan choreographer Tan Hui Chen has brought a stunning new piece to Dance Base. It’s based on the ancient language Nu Shu- a secret code invented by women in Hunan,which has been passed down through generations.
The men couldn’t understand this obscure regional language, which captured positive and negative female experiences. Now Chen has researched and created movements based around her findings, emulating the flow and shaping of the words, in a visually ravishing display performed by Water Reflection Dance Ensemble .
