SENSE is a narrative piece exploring how powerful the human senses become in a individual who is blind. It is supposed that the remaining are heightened in the absence of vision; for example, the awareness of sound becomes heightened.
BDblaq use fusion to provoke a raw emotional connection with an audience.
BDblaq Dance worked in collaboration with The Royal Institute of The Blind for research and development working with five visually impaired individuals whose story helped shape the end result of this compelling duet.
As a result SENSE toured in 2017 - 2018, and was shortlisted as part of Festival 10 Sentidos competition in Valencia and commissioned by Bermuda Culture Affairs to premiere at Earl Cameron Theatre in Bermuda.
