About Perceptual Archaeology The Fire and Rescue Team is adapting a series of blind travel essays written by Alex Bulmer for a live theatrical show, Perceptual Archaeology: a collective live theatre creation capturing the experience of travelling blind – where sonic curiosity replaces the notion of sight-seeing. We are a new group called The Fire and Rescue Team, co-founded by theatre artist Alex Bulmer, a blind female identified queer artist with thirty years of leadership within disability arts, and Leah Cherniak a sighted female identified artist with over thirty years of leadership in physical theatre and collective creation. Working within a primarily blind-informed process where blindness shapes form and content, we challenge how we perceive and make meaning of spaces, pursuing a theatrical incitement for the playful, daring, some discomfort and revelation.

Team Leadership Alex Bulmer, Co-Founder Leah Cherniak, Co-Founder Laura Philipps, Producer Sally Roberts, Production Manager

Open until filled. The The Fire and Rescue Team is hoping to fill the positions by the end of April.
