About

The world premiere of enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight opened the 89th American Dance Festival’s Season with five sold-out shows and outstanding reviews. Chatham Life & Style called it “a new evolution in dance.” IndyWeek called it “astounding” and a “bold, immersive performance.” CVNC described it as “a sensational and poetically eye-opening performance,” and Beltline to Broadway said it was “a new sensorial way to experience dance and theater.” We invite you to experience the Virtual Premiere of enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight.

Virtual Premiere of enVISION: Sensory Beyond Sight - an immersive interdisciplinary performance that does not solicit the viewer’s sight but rather all their other senses. Specifically conceived with and for individuals who are low-vision and blind, the work proposes a new sensorial experience of dance and theater. The work was presented to a live audience who could choose to experience the show blindfolded and invited six audience members to join the experience onstage.

Discounted tickets are available to individuals who identify as queer, transgender, non-binary and/or intersex, Black, Indigenous, and other LGBTQI+ people of color (QTIBIPOC) as well as individuals who live with disabilities.
