'Particularly for blind people we do not get to be physical' - Amelia Cavallo
This is amazing!! Watch this interview from BBC News interview with Amelia and Sarah Houbolt who are blind and partially sighted performers in the Extant/ Yellow Earth Theatre production Flight Paths.
"In (these) moments of quiet reflection, I felt invited to find connections between my own blindness story and the tales of adventure, advocacy and ambition woven through the play."
Hannah Thompson of Disability Arts Online watched FLIGHT PATHS with her heart. THIS, THIS THIS ...is what we hope to achieve for everyone who walked/walks through the door of Harlow Playhouse, Stratford Circus Arts Centre, Theatr Clwyd, CURVE theatre, Leicester. Albany Deptford, Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton. to see Birdgirl, Amelia Cavallo in our show with Extant and Upswing Aerial.
Brian Penn from everything theatre inspired by FLIGHT PATHS...
"...Extant, the theatre company for visually impaired people and Yellow Earth Theatre, a leading British East Asian theatre company, have joined forces productively, to produce a highly original piece of theatre."
"Elements of movement, music and creative audio description are delivered through new sound technology, for a unique multimedia experience. "
"I was deeply impressed by the performers’ aerial skills..."
"An important reminder, if it were ever needed, that anything can be achieved in life, if we let the idea grow."
