Created by Heather Lawson and Michelle Stevens, this immersive event shares the humour, grief, beauty and profound isolation of their lives as deafblind artists.


After an introductory film, you’ll be provided with individual headphones and goggles, then guided into an unseen promenade installation. With light and sound distorted and restricted, it is touch that becomes integral to connection.

Recipient of Melbourne’s Green Room Award for Innovation in Experiential Performance, director Jodee Mundy is fluent in Australian sign language because everyone in her family is deaf except for her. Collaborating with Lawson and Stevens – experts in tactile sign interpreting and social haptic communication – she has shaped Imagined Touch into a piece that alters our perceptions and reframes disability as an opportunity for untapped human potential.
