NUS Naach's Kiwaad revolves around the idea of finding meaning and inspiration in a mundane and seemingly banal existence. As the world recently plunged into a series of lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we found ourselves preparing for a terrifying phase of self-isolation. By staying trapped in our homes behind our doors, day after day, week after week, how does one still have the zeal for life? Can a seemingly innocuous and inanimate object like a door trigger the existential questions we face? And potentially point us towards the right direction? At its very core, Kiwaad is a search for meaning and possibly answers to existential questions that we as human society face, everyday.
Kiwaad will showcase 9 uniquely choreographed and themed dance pieces with an innovative use of props. The audience will experience a spectrum of emotions through the 9 different stories showcased. These stories will range from thought-provoking issues such as gender stereotypes, to light-hearted whimsical pieces with elements of comedy and romance.
