Original
Blindness is a socially distanced sound and light experience direct from London's Donmar Warehouse. Attendees listen to a narrative through binaural headphone technology while surrounded by immersive lighting and atmospheric design, and experience together – safely – the importance of community in our present moment.

SYNOPSIS: Based on José Saramago’s dystopian novel, Blindness unveils the gripping story of a world changed forever in the blink of an eye, reminding us that from the darkness, we will all emerge stronger.
