"Blindfly" is an interactive dance and music performance designed to bring awareness on the matter of visual impairment through creating a playground in an outdoor location. Five performers propose to the audience to close their eyes and feel/sense/hear the space and the performers around them. The performers, after giving some time to the audience to experience this new state of being, they start to play a children’s game (tiflomiga/blind fly). The state of “not seeing” together with the unpredictability of the public space, is a strong experience and introduces immediately the audience to the difficulties that visually impaired people are facing. Playing games rises the tension even more as nothing is more unpredictable than … relations while playing.
In this performance, one musician and one singer are following the journey of the performers.
The dancers were participants of a workshop that took place before the performance.
