enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight is an immersive interdisciplinary performance that does not solicit the viewer’s sight but rather all their other senses. Specifically conceived with and for individuals who are low-vision and blind, the work proposes a new sensorial experience of dance and theater. The work will be presented to a live audience who can choose to experience the show blindfolded and invites six audience members to join the experience onstage.

Video Description: Seven dancers of different genders and ethnicities are listening to the voice of Krishna Washburn who is guiding them through the art of self audio description. The video transitions to close-up shots of the performers’ bodies as they move in ways that respond to Krishna’s words. The dancers are moving inside the ADF Scripps Studio which has a gray marley floor and a wall of windows showing that it’s night.
