An adaptation of Gert Hofmann's novel, the piece explores the visual and comic presentation of a repetitive epic journey with no end, around the village green. Six blind men look for the painter's house where they will be painted walking, stumbling and falling into a ditch, in slow motion.
The Parable of the Blind is a comic meditation on language, art, and human pain.
