Inspired by the tradition of ‘the Goze’ – blind female travelling performers of medieval Japan – Extant, the UK’s leading company of visually impaired artists, launch a multimedia online production of Flight Paths commissioned by The Space.
This new digital retelling of the original 2019 stage production combines animation, aerial movement and integrated captions and audio description. Through interactive navigation, online viewers create and navigate their own journey with the Goze as a guide. Old and contemporary tales of visually impaired female artists merge to create a meditative reflection on travel, blindness and migration.
