About This Post
After a sell-out run at the London International Mime Festival 2015, Theatre Re presents a wordless tale about the power of imagination that blends together physical theatre, mime, sounds, illusions and a beautifully lyrical live musical score.
While a blind man walks around his room with unsteady steps a story of love, hope, courage and unquenchable vision unfolds.
Blind Man’s Song is a tale about one man’s rage against his world of darkness. Inspired by the paintings of René Magritte, the dead-end word of Samuel Beckett and interviews with blind and visually impaired people, it witnesses the power of the body to communicate without words.
