During Adventures in Sightlessness you’ll walk for approximately 20 minutes along a designated route with eyes closed.
You’ll move more or less freely in space, along walls and past downpipes and on footpaths and over gutters. You won’t be alone, but you’ll need to feel the way carefully. You might experience a sense of the world moving around you, with you at the centre, rather than always going toward objectives. You might find that you’re surprisingly at home with your surroundings when you can’t see – and you might not as well.
This walk can reward the brave with an unexpected liberation that is only an eyelid away…
