The Sanctuary of the Minds Ed2016

I watched the two computer screens in this performance with increasing bewilderment, as I listened to the dance music accompanying the projections. It started with some pictures, then effects were added and I thought “Now it’ll get interesting”. But it didn’t. The films didn’t tell an intelligible story and I just didn’t think the music was particularly good. The DJ, seated at a computer keyboard between audience and screens, wore various pairs of glasses with lights on them during the performance but even that didn’t cheer me up. It didn’t even help when he impersonated a Japanese warrior. Had I been dancing and not sitting in a theatre I may have enjoyed the show more – I’ll never know.

C nova, until 29 Aug.
