Step off the street, and into a darkened room. You can hear someone breathing. Maybe it is your own breath. You can sense someone moving. The ground beneath your feet feels strange. You are not alone.
BLINDA is an exchange between audience and performers. Your actions are reflected back at you, and resonate outwards in ways that are both familiar and strange. You are no longer a passive observer of others. The distinction between yourself and strangers dissolves…
BLINDA takes its cue from Dostoyevsky’s novella The Double, in which a man walks down the street and sees someone who looks exactly the same as he does. As a consequence of this his life changes forever.
We invite you to look into a mirror and lose sight of yourself – to disappear. And when you return, things might have changed. The world is not quite what it seemed, and the needs of strangers are the same as yours.
