Blindside - Stephanie Morin-Robert

Stephanie’s award-winning solo dance-storytelling-multimedia show BLINDSIDE, is a personal account of growing up with cancer and a glass eye. It’s a dark physical comedy which sees Stephanie recounting her life as a feisty 7 year-old who wields her glass-eye as a superpower.

A prospector’s recent diamond discovery forces his daughter, a young and sheltered cancer patient with a prosthetic eye, to change schools in the middle of the third grade. While her family members are distracted by their luxurious new lifestyles, she struggles with finding the confidence it takes to face the bullies at her new school. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses, and an undesirable superpower, she soon discovers that she has what it takes to fight back and come to terms with her disability.

This show was recently awarded MOST OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION (London Fringe Festival) and OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL WORK (Ottawa Fringe Festival)
