Perisgop presents a view of the world through someone else’s eyes. Made in partnership with UCAN Productions, the production gives musical voice and artistic expression to the lived experiences of visually- impaired people during the Covid 19 pandemic. Perisgop’s artistic team is entirely visually-impaired: composer Gareth Churchill, writer Kaite O’Reilly and film maker Jake Sawyers.

Listen to perisgop project outline

A series of online workshops started a seven-month period of composition, exploration and development which has resulted in a chamber music theatre work, performed by a disabled ensemble: two sopranos, speaking voice, flute and piano. Perisgop unfolds as a three-movement dramatic song-cycle framed by two verbatim ‘streams’, featuring the actual voices of interviewees. The film is captioned throughout (there is no BSL). We hope you enjoy it.
