Scenes from Eye Piece

Eye Piece was presented in collaboration with Hancher Auditorium and supported by a major grant from the Doris Duke Foundation. Beginning with interviews of doctors, nurses, and patients in the UI Center for Macro-degeneration, Rinde Eckert created a music-theatre piece that explored the world of the blind. At the center of the play was a painter grappling with the agony of losing his sight. Surrounding that story were snatches of medical lectures, songs, dances, and scenes drawn from research. More than a story of the human body, Eye Piece was about the rich subject of blindness – social, cultural, and spiritual.
