MIF presents Playing Through The Looking Glass, Online


Price: Free


Laid on grass is an ornate mirror, which is reflecting a psychedelic pattern of pink hearts.

Join us for a unique edition of Festival in My House… and Yours and come with us on a playful journey through the looking glass!

Elizabeth Wainwright is a visually impaired actor–facilitator from Bury who has spent lockdown helping visually impaired people to connect, learn new skills and beat the homebound blues. In January, she invited a trio of brilliant creatives to lead three special performance workshops for visually impaired people – and Blain Norvun’s beautiful short film captures the magic, the movement and the madness of what happened.

We’ll see how the group explored the magic of Shakespeare’s writing for the stage, learned how to develop a character through movement and discovered how clowning can help them tap into their inner l’idiot – all experienced as a filmic dream depicting the fun and delight that defined the day.

The film will premier on MIF’s Youtube channel and the MIF website on 25 February at 7pm, and be available to watch at any time afterwards on Youtube.
