A Zoom link will be sent to you upon registration.
In “Blind Rituals”, we investigate dance and embodiment practices as aligning rituals for the blind dancer Toffee. The artistic process shed light on an understanding of why and how a blind person dance–to cultivate himself as a person, to make sense of the world, to share his passion and for us to perhaps write a new disability myth through dance rituals as a means of holistic non-verbal communication.
This event will walk you through dance-based embodiment practices derived from Toffee’s lived experience of being a blind artist. How may we care for ourselves and each other through dancing and sharing dances? What if blindness, as an act of experiencing, is no more limiting, but a vast field of possibilities?
This online event is a mini-workshop, a lecture-performance with a premiere of our online gallery website “Blind Rituals”
Presented in an online Zoom Meeting (pre-registration required to receive a zoom link) at 14.00. We will hold space for Q&A and interactions. However, you are not required to open camera or unmute.
The meeting is recorded to re-run for open public at 20.00.
