What You See When Your Eyes Are Closed / What You Don’t See When Your Eyes Are Open

This new show at Tramway by multi-award winning artist Mamoru Iriguchi explores the acts of 'Seeing' and 'Being Seen' on stage and on screen.

What You See When Your Eyes Are Closed / What You Don’t See When Your Eyes Are Open

About What You See When Your Eyes Are Closed / What You Don’t See When Your Eyes Are Open

Monster vs Hero, TV Camera vs Reporter, Husband vs Husband

Through battles and rituals, nightmares and realities, academic theories and lived experiences, this new show by multi-award winning artist Mamoru Iriguchi explores the acts of ‘Seeing’ and ‘Being Seen’ on stage and on screen.

According to James Gibson (visual perception psychologist) many animals, including humans, ‘move their bodies to see’ as well as ‘see to move their bodies’. The audience is invited (though not required!) to move around the space to ‘see’ the performance in a truly animalistic fashion.

All performances are Relaxed with unique Audio Description and Captioning.

'The most inventive and playful examples of creatively embedded access I’ve seen. Lots of interesting food for thoughts.'
(Callum Madge, Access Manager, Edinburgh International Festival, on Twitter)

Recommended for ages 12+
