Lights Dance Festival 2018 – COLLIDE

The 2nd Lights Dance Festival is curated around the concept of “Collide”.

In a world of dichotomies, we often shy away from “the other” or “the unknown.” We carefully skirt around the unfamiliar with our own set of conclusions without ever engaging in a conversation. As much as we’d like to believe we live in a gradient world, we wrestle with dichotomies each day. Progressive vs Traditional. Scientific vs Spiritual. Us vs. Them.

What if we stripped ourselves of fear and let these ideas play? What if we let these conceptions collide? Will some fuse while others split? Will it form a new state that luminesce to give off light? Will it create more energy as it gives birth to new particles?
