In daylights, In sunsets, In midnights, In cups of coffee,
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife
In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in a life?
Jonathan Larson, Seasons of Love, Rent
NUS Arts Festival 2021 invites you to reconnect with the potential of the arts to transport you through time and space through the power of the imagination. In the wake of a year when what was normal was suspended and there was significant time for pause and reflection, this year's festival theme A Question of Time simply asks "How do you measure and mark Time in your life? In collaboration with students and staff of the Department of Communications and New Media, more than 300 talented students from 21 CFA Arts Excellence Groups with special guest artists respond boldly to the festival's theme through more than 30 exciting events from intimate live engagements to digital offerings spanning music, dance, theatre, films, talks and visual presentations from 19 March – 16 April 2021.
