Blind Man's Song
21 - 22 Jan 2015
‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart’ Helen Keller
While a blind old man walks around his room with unsteady steps, a story of love, courage, hope and unquenchable vision unfolds. Blind Man’s Song, is a tale of one man’s rage against the world of darkness. Inspired by René Magritte’s paintings, the dead-end world of Samuel Beckett and interviews with blind and visually impaired people, it uses theatre, mime, sound and original live music in exploring the power of imagination to seek wisdom beyond our senses.
Established in 2009, Theatre Re is a London-based international ensemble, creating vibrant and emotional work on the edge of mime and theatre. Its two previous productions, The Gambler and The Little Soldiers, have both toured widely following successful Edinburgh Fringe seasons.
