RECENT PRESS RELEASES
IN THE NEWS...
"... design and location can't help but inspire artists in new ways. For example, one of the pieces salty water by Blindspot Collective weaves music, movement, spoken testimony and poetry to explore our community's history and connection to the sea."
"The words were evocative and moving and the bubbles and puppets got dozens of small children up on their feet to watch and interact."
"Blending music, movement and text, it’s a meditation on human connection and impermanence that simultaneously celebrates resilience and a reflection of adversity"
"I have no doubt that children will be swept up in the fun and creative songs and the imaginative storytelling of the show."
"In a time where people are saying that they 'can see the light at the end of the tunnel', Blindspot Collective’s new show LIT, tells audiences of all ages that you can be your own source of light in the darkness."
"This process parallels the human need to eulogize their loved ones. When these songs are shared with the public, they put a face — and a story — to the human toll of the pandemic."
"McNeil, 30, can no longer call his mom three to four times a day just to hear the sound of her voice and laughter. But he now has a new way to keep her spirit in his ears and heart, thanks to San Diego’s Blindspot Collective theater company."
"Many San Diegans have avoided going stir-crazy in quarantine with daily walks around their neighborhoods. But have you ever wondered what’s going behind the walls and windows of the homes you pass?"
"By going digital this year those common experiences can be shared by even more people than the live performances could ever reach."
"I still feel a little bit closer to the other participants than before the play. We danced together, put our feet on the ground together and took breaths in unison."
"While this year has come with some challenges for theatre, it is those very challenges that helped this show come to fruition. Inspired by the pandemic and the racial justice protests this project came together to create something that is unique to this moment."
"This worked amazingly well at the performance I attended. Apparently, it always does. That’s because she is a spectacular facilitator, who handles children with extreme sensitivity and respect, and engages the audience from the moment they enter the theater...."
"I’m very grateful that I’ve been able to use my voice to empower young people to, maybe, to make different choices..."
"If you have any trepidation about leaping feet-first into the gleeful riot of unpredictable, unconventional performance that is the La Jolla Playhouse WOW Festival, rest assured: The artists are right there with you."
"Performers played their parts with empathy, and the rapport that they shared resulted in a bittersweet payoff."
"It gives people an opportunity or permission to step outside of that and to do that thing that we don’t always get to do which is be and enjoy and connect."
"For the innovative, grassroots San Diego theater troupe Blindspot Collective, [airports are] also a place to explore how to open minds and hearts — or even just prompt some smiles of delight — via performing art."
"Theater has a diversity problem. But a new San Diego theater company’s mission is to make plays designed to engage communities of color."
"'Qulili' takes its title from an Arabic word meaning 'tell me,' and Blindspot Collective is an apt name for a troupe whose 'radically inclusive' programming takes in stories of people and communities that have generally been overlooked or underappreciated."
"This timely and ultimately hopeful play offers communities an opportunity to navigate this difficult but important conversation during a time of increasing visibility and vulnerability."
"The piece of forum theater has helped students find tangible ways to recognize and combat transphobia and other forms of bullying. It also requires the largely LGBT+ performers relinquish control of their characters — and the conversation — to young people who may have never been exposed to this issue before."
"The gripping piece is based on actual conversations with therapists, people experiencing addiction, and battling PTSD, as it explores the mental health crisis in America..."
"One outstanding performance was given by a vibrant and comical young man named Wreckless Watson. He portrayed a woman who had a remarkable sense of humor cracking wise about her experience with addiction, withdrawal and being on suicide watch."
