Ever wonder what it’s like to see a show… without actually seeing it? This piece plunges the audience into darkness, allowing them to step into the shoes of their hosts, VICS, a collective of visually impaired artists from a variety of performing disciplines. Bringing VI-awareness into the mainstream in a fun and musical way, this brand-new show showcases some of VI’s best creative talent. Enjoy stand-up comedy from Neil Skene, music from Kellie Dingwall, drag from Rupaulsy, and sketches from Kirin Saeed – all in the pitch dark! And of course you can take part too!
