My Sight Their Sight

Perception is more than just seeing.

Be captivated and challenged by this playfully provocative exploration of the senses.
How would you adapt without sight - blindfolded? Would you rise to the challenge or trip over your own feet? Three highly trained interdisciplinary performing artists work to explore how the human body can move and interact when sight is compromised. A quirky and atmospheric interpretation of the relationship between being sighted and not sighted -exploring shifts in power, poignant moments and pure physicality. My Sight Their Sight engages with the audience to show us how movement, dance, and circus can transcend something that most of us take for granted – SIGHT. Join creator Abbie Madden, Director of the company Blindful, for an insightful Q&A after the performance.
