In Marcel Proust's novel, La Recherche du Temps Perdu or "In Search of Lost Time", the lightest of sensory experiences, such as savouring the taste and smell of madeleines with tea, have the power to evoke strong emotions. In weaving vestiges of the past with the incidents of the now, Proust reminds us that while time continues to flow on relentlessly, it is art which has the power to freeze our human experiences into a single moment.
In the company of a small group of friends, step into a kaleidoscope of 22 performances, that merge times and spaces spent in the well-trod rooms of our homes. Share with us in this once-in-a-lifetime creation of art composed of both personal and shared memories from our NUS students. Watch Davide Brugola from Italy muse about his adventures in lockdown as he kneads pizza dough; find the calm and warmth within your day with NUS Chinese Dance as they serve you a cup of tea; and journey with NUS Electronic Music Lab as they transform the sounds of everyday sonic spectra into a series of improvised electronic music performances.
