Grace has Tinnitus so the way she perceives sounds can be radically different from the average person. Yet, appearance wise, Grace’s disability is invisible. Through virtual reality, the viewer experiences the world through Grace’s eyes and ears as she narrates in voiceover. That world is a fantastical recreation of how she perceives sound. A musician at the far end of a restaurant engulfs her with music whilst the person she sits opposite from, is inaudible. As a theatre practitioner, Grace also creates judgement-free spaces, through participatory arts, for people with and without disabilities to come together.
