After studying at Northwestern for two years, I’ve come to know Evanston winters quite well. The days and nights are cold, dull and gloomy. Most of the time, I don’t want to go out and my mood takes a dip. Days go by without seeing the sun and I ask myself if I ever really knew anything else. But sometimes, Northwestern can surprise me.

I first found out about Dans le Noir? from the movie “About Time.” In it, Rachel McAdams’s character meets Domnhall Gleeson’s in a restaurant where diners eat in pitch-black. There are no night vision goggles, no candle lights, nothing. In the space between you and everything else, there is only pure darkness.
