Ordinary things from our apartments may someday become exhibits of the Ethnographic Museum and will cause surprised and admiring glances from people of another century, and all the objects that are now exhibited in the halls of the museum were once used by someone at home. "Visible Things" is a performance about the museum and about us, offering to walk through the Ethnographic Museum as if in a large apartment and feel that every person's home is a small museum of ethnography.
The performance takes place in the museum halls with the permanent display, combining its fragments, simple non-historical things and personal stories of blind and sighted actors.
The play involves 28 people, both blind and visually impaired actors and sighted professional actors, directors, artists, playwrights.
