Members of White Cane Audio Theatre recording radio plays for Sightless Cinema

Audio Theatre: Sightless Cinema at Lighthouse Cinema

27 Sep 2016 (Past)

The Lighthouse Cinema, Smithfield

Gather in the darkened cinema for the première of a programme of short radio plays in surround sound, where all the pictures will be in your head!

The lively mix, devised and performed by White Cane Audio Theatre, a group of blind and visually impaired people led by director Ciarán Taylor, includes the spooky Bump in the Night, the hilarious Pool Divo, and The Housewarming, a melodrama recorded on location.

Sightless Cinema is funded by Dublin City Council, facilitated by the National Council for the Blind in Ireland, with support from National League of the Blind in Ireland and recording facilities provided by Dublin City University; and is part of Dublin City Council’s Social Inclusion Week.

This is the second year of White Cane Audio Theatre, which was originally funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Arts Office and presented in UCD Cinema in 2015. The Dublin group has been meeting since January exploring sound as a means of sharing stories.
