Two moving stories, one of a young person dealing with her mother’s gradual loss of sight and the other of an “unseen” foreign student bring into focus how our blindspots prevent us from seeing those in need around us. Drawn from deeply personal interviews with visually impaired persons, insights shared by VWOs who support these communities as well as with people who live on the fringes, the devised theatre piece created by members of Chinese Drama offers deeper insights into the challenges faced by such individuals that hopefully lead to a more inclusive campus. Blindspot continues the strong desire of this young theatre group to tell authentic stories that not only raise awareness of issues that concern their generation but to also spark action through change of thinking.
The festival is committed to making the production Blindspot accessible to the best of our endeavors. Details will be released soon.
Performed in Mandarin with English surtitles.
There will be post-show dialogues after each performance.
