Light has long fascinated the human mind, inspiring scientists, philosophers and artists alike. It is the many ways we perceive light(ness), or quality of light, which the artists in this year’s NUS Arts Festival plumb for meaning and motivation in a greater search for answers to navigate the dark, complex, and uncertain post-COVID world we presently live in. Join us as we explore the many shades of light(ness) through music, dance, theatre, film, and so much more!
