Museum of Imagined Touch- The Deafblind Live Art project

Description
"Museum of Imagined Touch” is a multi-sensory live arts performance project exploring the fascinating world of Deafblind culture with its own tactile sign language, unique relationship to the senses, space and navigation of the world. This project is a national first of this scale, centred around an outstanding collaboration with two Deafblind women, Heather Lawson, a puppeteer and Michelle Stevens, a pianist. This has been in development since 2013 and will be presented live to the public in 2016.

This project focuses on the women's stories living with this dual sensory loss and what they believe to be the most important human sense: That being: human touch.
