About Pages - the theme of SMU Arts Festival 2017
Inspired by the medium that conjures valuable lessons, unpredictable stories and exciting ideas, Pages is the embodiment of new discovery. It sets the stage for creative expression and invites the audience to challenge their notions of:
Education. The information age has revolutionised the era of traditional textbooks. How has this affected our lives and influenced our choices?
Literature. Our favourite classics are given a moral or allegorical twist. How will familiar stories be re-interpreted through unfamiliar contexts and timelines?
Causes. Disconcerted by the servitude of pages from kingdoms past, are we true champions of what we believe, or blind followers of noble ideals – or both?
Paper. Could there be more to the rustling and crushing of paper? We push the boundaries of paper as a medium to unleash surprising possibilities.
