“I found pain in the light, and beauty in darkness” 

In this new solo work the renowned dancer/puppeteer Duda Paiva draws on his childhood during which he suffered an illness that blistered his body and left him temporarily blind. His surreal path to healing involved both western and shamanic medicine.  Blind transforms this experience into a metaphor about disability, rejection, and resolution. Often interacting with the audience, it is funny as well as moving.  Never didactic, it finds the political through the intimate, woven into a rich theatrical tapestry of dance, puppetry, Yoruba songs from a unique Afro-Brazilian subculture, and driving forces of sound and light.
