Touch is the main way that Deafblind people navigate, communicate and connect with others. In a society where touch is not encouraged, Deafblind people grapple with universal questions of isolation, access and human connection.

Wearing goggles and headphones that alter and restrict light and sound, and through intensified touch and tactile communication, experience the artists’ stories in a profoundly different sensory environment and literally meet Heather and Michelle through an imagined touch of the senses.

Featuring Deafblind artists Heather Lawson and Michelle Stevens, Imagined Touch is a unique and shared experience, providing an insight into living in a world without sight or sound by using art, theatre and sensory performance.
