The Invisible Dances was a theatre work presented in three acts over three years.

Each act was drawn from a repertoire of work developed during a five-year research period – as well as responding to the different spaces, times and contexts in which they were presented. The performers, both blind and sighted, inhabit a series of musical, spoken and visual texts that remain unseen/unheard by an audience.

Elegiac in its search for narrative, The Invisible Dances presented a disturbing visual world of abandonment and beauty.

As the piece ends in roaring darkness, it’s as if we finally join [the performers]. And you’d be amazed at just what a blast that is.”
