How do you experience a performance? By seeing it? What if that’s not possible?
“Jess Curtis makes the invisible visible… acoustically and haptically (in)Visible challenges the audience to take on new perspectives.” — TanzRaumBerlin
(in)Visible, a new evening-length work by Jess Curtis/Gravity, 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.
