Blind is a play about the persecution of people with albinism in Tanzania- murdered for their body parts, which are believed to hold magical power. In this fascinating encounter between documentary theatre and mythical storytelling, Blind follows Hannah during her stay in Tanzania where she works as an international observer of human rights violations. Intercut with snapshot-testimonies from children with albinism, the victims of violent crimes, the play is also an unflinching account of the crisis of humanitarian aid in Africa. In examining the issue of gathering testimony and of observation, Blind questions assumptions about foreign intervention.

Written by Montréal author Lindsay Wilson, a graduate of the Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto and Concordia University, Blind draws from Wilson’s own experience living in Tanzania. Blind is directed by the prolific Alison Darcy, an actress, stage director and co-founder of the Scapegoat Carnivale Theatre. Heavily involved in creative projects in Montréal, and in particular with the Segal Centre and Centaur Theatre, Darcy also often works with the South African company Mopo Production.

Scapegoat Carnivale Theatre is an award-winning company dedicated to producing original and challenging theatre and a visceral artistic experience. Distinctions include two MECCA Awards for Medea in 2010.
