The aim of ‘Eskin 4’, which will be at ISEA2018, is to create a trans-disciplinary platform to enable visually impaired participants to become performers alongside their own ecological stories.

Performance details

June 18-26

June 26, 17:30
MOTH HALL, Natural Science Research Center
151 KE Masinga Rd, Stamford Hill, Durban, South Africa

In this workshop seven visually challenged participants from the Mason Lincoln Special School in Umlazi, Durban will work with two Durban dancers and the Swiss-based media art group.

Under the direction of Jill Scott they developed a cross modal interactive platform for creative interpretation, inspired by current research in neuroscience and wearable
computing. The role of the media art team is to visually interpret the participants stories for a sighted audience and to support them to be creative on this mediated
stage. Here, technology is used as a platform for social engagement to amplify the voices of this local community.

In a final performance the audience is introduced to a unique experimental theatre event.
