Flight Paths show at the Curve

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

NEW to Le­ices­ter’s Curve theatre is the first ever co-pro­duc­tion from Ex­tant, the UK’s lead­ing theatre com­pany of vis­ually im­paired peo­ple and Yel­low Earth, award­win­ning Bri­tish East Asian theatre com­pany.

Watch as two blind women take cen­tre stage, some­times on aerial silks, some­times with their feet firmly on the ground but al­ways sur­rounded by voices, mu­sic, sto­ries and ghosts.

From tra­di­tion to moder­nity they nav­i­gate the path of the mi­grant, weav­ing to­gether per­sonal sto­ries of blind artists from Ja­pan, Nige­ria, the USA and Aus­tralia as they forge their ca­reers as aeri­al­ists, vi­ola player and so­prano.

Both com­pa­nies have com­bined move­ment, mu­sic, nar­ra­tive and creative au­dio de­scrip­tion de­liv­ered through new sound tech­nol­ogy to cre­ate a mul­time­dia pro­duc­tion that ex­pands artis­tic and ac­cess bound­aries.

Flight Paths will hit the theatre on Tues­day Fe­bru­ary 19 and Wed­nes­day Fe­bru­ary 20 and tick­ets vary be­tween £10 and £18.
