How My Light Is Spent

Tue 16 - Sat 20 August
Seligman Theatre

Nine people with sight loss find themselves in the wood. As night begins to fall, they gather together, light a fire, and begin to tell one another stories. Who or what can lead them back to safety?

Featuring live music, film and with audio description woven into the performance, nine members of Sight Life Wales recount their experiences of lockdown. Their stories are funny, sad, and deeply moving, as they find themselves isolated by both the pandemic and their own sight loss, and seek comfort in the natural world.

Over fourteen years, Company of Sirens have produced a large body of work that includes premieres of vital contemporary plays. They’ve worked with some of Wales and the UK’s most exciting writers and delivered projects dealing with issues of autism, sight loss and knife crime. Their last project Stone the Crows was described in the press as “A powerful and transformative theatre experience”.
