Tactile performances include interactive elements that induct the audience into an unsighted environment, in which other senses come to the fore: tactile, aural, spatial and proprioceptive
Sensing Nature (2017) was a site-specific piece created in collaboration with Waveney and Blyth Arts. Tactile composers Jackie Walduck and Adrian Lee created a sound trail around the site, based on the sounds of indigenous species: crickets, grasshoppers, weasels, bats, chaffinches, cuckoos, blue tits, great tits and wrens. A blindfold audience was led around the site to experience music in varied habitats.
