Shuttle in Time | Online (NUS Arts Festival 2021)

We are always on the move, sometimes unwillingly when we are caught up in circumstances beyond our control. Set in an old trolley bus as a metaphor of life that is constantly on the run, join NUS Chinese Drama and NUS Chinese Dance as they bring you on two escape journeys – from the past to present – that probe how we make decisions in a state of flux, where we are shuttling back and forth between ourselves and the expectations of others.



NUS Chinese Drama
“Paths”, “殊途”
Set in WWII, a resistant fighter husband and a pregnant reluctant wife. A bereaved woman who witnessed her son’s murder. A sister who wishes to feed her starving brother. A mother trying to prevent her daughters from becoming comfort women. When survival instincts kick in, is anyone truly responsible for their actions?

NUS Chinese Dance
Living in our modern society, where life is packed with never-ending tasks and interactions with other people, we constantly dress to impress and “act” to fit into society. How I wish we could throw away all the doubts, let loose our hair and be wild and free.
