This play is a short, lovely passenger in your lives. With glowing, colorful eyes, she is dressed to catch your eye and turn your head around so that you could spend an hour or so flirting with her. She doesn’t want to smooch you, or temporarily intertwine her fingers with yours, pinch your cheek and awaken in you the false hope for love at first touch. She is all of us embraced at the Theatrical Company of the Blind and Visually Impaired “New Life”. She is us who feel sorry for all those who feel sorry for us, us who know very well how people don’t see us and turn us into charity while the seats in the auditorium stay empty because we don’t deserve to be a theatre.
She’s rude, that little passenger, - you say to yourself, - how does she dare to break prejudices and tell truth to our face??? But believe us, she’s not. She’s all of us. We who are honest and we who love you, need you and invite you to join us and share the equality!
One by one, you stand in line to buy the ticket and you come to us with different expectations. Group after group rolls with laughter and rewards us with applause while we wait for the waterfall, we desire that spontaneous conversation that will happen somewhere in the tram or in some waiting room…”I went to the theater yesterday”…”Actors were really good”!! “Honey, let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day. There’s a love play performed by the Theatrical Company of the Blind!”
This is what we want. We want to be you! We want to be everyone! We want colors and sounds, touches and smells intertwined with our lives and we want us all to be together as blue in the sky and blue in the sea, as pink in the flowers and pink in the spring, as a romantic tune in d-minor.
Premier: 27th Feb 2015
