The world told through the experiences of three blind actors.
Antiheroes Project celebrates its fifth anniversary with Fluorescent Moon, a work of exploration in the world of three blind individuals. After half a decade of presenting numerous multidisciplinary theatre plays and inclusive workshops for people with and without disabilities, our organization have conceived this project for blind artists only.
The title Fluorescent Moon comes from a personal experience of one of the actors. He remembers the way in which his parents described the moon to him at the age of four. This work stems from conversations about memories and life events of six friends, four of them blind.
From those talks, emerge the idea of translating into the language of theatre aspects of their life, as well as their way of understanding and approaching the discovery of the outer world. Each actor has lived through experiences and obstacles differently, so it is also a play about diversity.
