(in)Visible (Oct 3-13)

A person wearing metallic pink shows jumps above a concrete floor with their legs slightly apart. Jess Curtis sits in the far background, looking at the camera through the person's open legs. Other people stand, crawl or walk in the far background. A black chair with thin metal legs is next to the jumping person on the right.

HOW DO YOU EXPERIENCE A PERFORMANCE? BY SEEING IT? WHAT IF THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE?
(in)Visible, dislocates vision from the center of your experience. Developed in collaboration with—and particularly focusing on access to culture for—blind and visually impaired audiences, (in)Visible is created and performed by an international cast of six blind, visually impaired and sighted body-based dancer/performers who dance, sing, whisper and feel their way into your consciousness, bringing experimental dance/performance and sensory accessibility practices into a rich and moving interaction.

Audio Described Shows every night!
