R&D of an autobiographical work by visually impaired writer/storyteller Liz Porter. The emerging production - described as ‘a theatrical storytelling’ - was presented as work-in-progress at The Nightingale Theatre, Brighton and mac, Birmingham, during 2014, then at Salisbury Arts Centre in early 2015. The production featured animated video sequences by artists Abigail Norris and Rachel Gadsden and sound design by Joseph Young. A team of specialists helped to improve access for audience members with visual and hearing impairments.
