PUPPETRY / DANCE
“It’s as delightful as it is heart breaking and too beautiful to define.” ★★★★
– Sydney Morning Herald
An inspiring, hallucinatory solo work by Duda Paiva, exploring a childhood illness which left him temporarily blind, told through hypnotic puppetry and movement.
BLIND transforms his experience with hand-made puppets and stunning visual landscapes to detail his surreal path to healing. A powerful story of disability, rejection and resolution touched by a delightful sense of humour.
Originally from Brazil, Duda Paiva, along with his dance partners – carved from flexible foam – create unique, elusive, magical, sometimes painful worlds that discuss taboo subjects in a light-hearted way.
