Flight Paths

Flight Paths explores aerial movement, song, narrative and live description, and creates innovative ways to deliver accessible live performance that break down the barriers between sighted and visually impaired audiences. Inspired by the traditions of Biwa Hoshi players - blind itinerant performers from medieval Japan - four visually impaired artists will explore their personal stories of migration to the UK
