Extant’s first touring production, a groundbreaking innovative physical theatre piece based on the true story of teenage blind French resistance leader Jacques Lusseyran.
In June 2004 Extant was successful in it’s application to the Arts Council for funding to tour our first production. Hense there began a completely unique and ambitious project that not only aimed to draw together and put into action the research from our previous projects, but to also apply these to a new script by a blind writer, about a blind historic figure, and for the first time in Britain, cast a professional company of visually impaired actors to tour it across the UK and to other countries.
it explodes into white-hot light, dark shadows, whispered secrets and mysteries … there are also moments when form and content are matched so perfectly that the sighted catch a tiny glimpse of what it must be like to be visually impaired.
