The Solo is inspired by Jose Saramago’s “Blindness” (1999) Here, an epidemic of blindness brings out the beast in the people, describing a hell on earth. Those afflicted with this blindness, see only the colour white. In this performance the notion of ‘no light but white’ is taken to represent the loss of nourishment by an infantile society ‘seeing milk only’, all that is left is a scorched community where efficiency and utilitarianism reign as the prevailing values.
