BOOM Performance:
“Nearly Sighted”

“Nearly Sighted” is a solo project, performed and produced by Kayla Hamilton that gives the audience an opportunity to see through her eyes. She moves through the world with a chronic illness that has left her with sight in one eye, loss of peripheral vision, double vision, blurred vision and difficulty seeing in low light. Integrating the voices and aesthetics of  five black female choreographers; Francine E. Ott, Nia Love, Christal Brown, Crystal U. Davis and Jaimè Dzandu, this work seeks to draw attention to new stories.  With sound bites of interviews with each choreographers woven between dances, “Nearly Sighted” generates discussion around the ideas of race, gender and visibility.
