Out of sight
Out of sight is a binaural story about what it means to care for someone and be cared for. How does it feel to move forward through an obstacle course of memories, hopes and misunderstandings?
In the darkness you find yourself at the heart of a fragmented story about family. Feel the warmth, smell yesterday, there’s that sound again; your imagination spirals as the darkness allows you to see, feel, understand so much more.
A sensory experience, a moment just for you, that time you needed… feel like you’ve been to multiple locations all from the safety of a chair in a darkened room. Now what can you see when you open your eyes?
A try-out performance with the title Blackout was part of the Live Lab Elevator Festival in February 2017.
Out of Sight was presented at the Critical Care Symposium at the Centre for Digital Story-making at London South Bank University in March 2018.
