Pick up some headphones and immerse yourself in a sound world created by two blind performers exploring and navigating public space. Rediscover Spitalfields through sound in this fascinating collaboration between music, dance and performance, placing you at the centre of a unique sensory experience.

As the long cane rolls across the surface of each space, you will hear its sound, combined with live music and spoken and sung audio description to create a unique experience of ‘sonic vision’.

Performance times

11am: Public experiment session
2pm: Installation / performance session for blind and visually impaired people
5pm: Installation / performance session for public

At all other times the sound will be available in headphones for the public to experience.

Supported by Sound and Music’s Composer-Curator Programme and Spitalfields E1.
