The Sightless is based on the haunting play by Maurice Maeterlinck.
In a place, which not a single shaft of light penetrates.A group of men and women, blind to their surroundings, sit separated from each other. Abandoned by their sighted leader, they grow ever more afraid of the sounds that surround them and the darkness that envelops them.
The Sightless, performed in total darkness, is an unnerving thriller about perception, prejudice and the extent to which the fears that haunt us come from within.
