In 2020 our activities were upended but that hasn’t stopped us from creating and collaborating.
Last spring, Alex pivoted and partnered Common Boots with BALANCE For Blind Adults to co-ordinate live play readings for the blind community across Canada – a community profoundly isolated by the pandemic.
This partnership continues as “The Listening Stage” a series of audio-based online events. The 2020-21 series is being launched November 24, 2020 with a live-streamed performance of Assassinating Thomson by blind actor Bruce Horak.
We’ve been exploring digital storytelling with Postcards From My Balcony; a short film which will be presented in the spring of 2021. Stay tuned for details on streaming events.
In early 2021, our development of audio/digital theatre continues. We will workshop an original work Perceptual Archeology based on Alex Bulmer’s blind travel writing, with the goal of an audio-led live binaural performance in 2022.
