Presented in WaxFactory's renowned interdisciplinary style, part-multi-media installation, part-dance theatre, BLIND.NESS (Love is a four-letter word) is an in depth and daring examination of what happens when love goes terribly wrong.
Directed by Ivan Talijancic and co-written with Slovenian playwright Simona Semenic, BLIND.NESS follows a powerhouse all-female cast on an emotional roller coaster ride across the dark and wildly humorous underbelly of love. BLIND.NESS brings together an exciting team of international collaborators including sublime video by Antonio Giacomin of Italy, the sleek architectural design of Minimart and the seductive sounds of electronica duo Random Logic of Slovenia. This technology infused tour de force will surely bend minds and break hearts.
