It’s been a while since we’ve been able to travel about. But now you can go on an altogether different type of journey thanks to theatre company Extant.
They’re urging you to experience Flight Paths, their multimedia production that’s inspired by the secret history of the Goze. The Goze were blind female travelling performers in medieval Japan. Now, with the Goze as your interactive guide, you’ll be able to journey through old and contemporary tales of visually impaired women.
Flight Paths is a meditative reflection on travel, blindness and migration. It features an unusual mix of animation, storytelling and performance, to bring you an interactive production that is interesting, informative and entertaining.
This OnComm nominated production features aerial performance, animation, integrated captions and audio description, and binaural sound to challenge theatrical and access boundaries.
Simply plug in your headphones and head on over to Flight Paths, where a guide will explain everything to you before letting you choose a path to explore.
Flight Paths is a new digital retelling of a 2019 stage production from Extant. Extant are the UK’s leading company of visually impaired artists. They explore visual impairment to create unique and innovative artistic experiences, placing visually impaired people at the centre of all they do.
