The Greek choreographer Vicky Angelidou gives a voice to visually impaired people with two unique performances in the Cenakel. In sound clips from interviews with blind people and the visually impaired is answered the question: what can they see and the rest escapes from U.S? The blind and partially sighted are often invisible to us because we tend to get in bubbles to live. But by opening ourselves to their experience of the world we can we immerse ourselves in wisdom that flows from life without sight. "A Day in the Darkness" is a unique opportunity to experience all this. Every twenty minutes, four visitors get the chance to experience the performance one-on-one. They are connected to dancers with elastic bands and experience the movements with their others senses such as feeling and hearing. This experience is accessible to blind and partially sighted people. Visitors who can see fully may close their eyes to take a "peek" in the world of people with a visual impairment. There are a maximum of 12 tickets per time slot and 4 visitors will actively participate in the performance by possibly experiencing them blindfolded. People with a visual impairment will like this get priority. "A Day in the Darkness," can be experienced on Saturday, October 24 and October 31 between 12:30 and 17:30. During this event, all guidelines of the RIVM are followed. Visitors are allowed to themselves determine whether they wear a mouth mask.
