A play with no words

27 Jan 2015 09:30

Blind Man’s Song is a tale about one man’s rage against his world of darkness. Inspired by the paintings of René Magritte, the dead-end world of Samuel Beckett and interviews with blind and visually-impaired people, it uses theatre, mime and original live music to explore the power of imagination in seeking wisdom beyond our senses. With no words, Blind Man’s Song witnesses the power of the body to communicate.
