Company of Sirens How My Light is Spent

What lies beyond the purely visual?

Nine people with varying degrees of sight loss find themselves trapped in the heart of a forest. They make a fire and tell their stories as day turns to night. What they see in the dark night is a light from inside each other. A light that needs to stay alight and burn. A light they all share.

Stories both desperate and amusing of lock-down and more, the piece features live music and film with audio description integrated into the performance.

"A tapestry of light,shade and the dark"

It shows how our relationship with nature can prove a vital refuge and how its shapes and sounds offer support and comfort.

Director : Chris Durnall

Music: Stacey Blythe

Film: Sion Berry

Audio Description: Alistair Sill
