BLINDNESS: A Post-Performance Conversation

As an adjunct to Auckland Writers Festival & Auckland Live’s presentation of the Donmar Warehouse’s production of BLINDNESS, join disability advocate Martine Abel-Williamson, legally blind writer Steff Green and The University of Auckland Dean of Arts Dr. Robert Greenberg for a post-performance conversation about the controversy surrounding Saramago’s novel of the same name because of its negative representations of blindness, and the ways in which society privileges sight / the visual.

This conversation will take place on Friday 14 May at 3.30pm (immediately following the 2.15pm performance) in the Supper Room of the Auckland Town Hall, 301-317 Queen Street, and is free to attend.

BLINDNESS
runs Tuesday 11 - Sunday 16 May in the Concert Chamber of the Town Hall with up to six performances a day. Audio description is available on request, either when booking or on arrival at the performance; a captioned performance is available at 10:00am on Wednesday 13 May, to be requested at time of booking.
