21st Century Dinosaurs is an exciting piece of multi-media theatre, created by award winning director, Chris Tally Evans and his talented company of artists. Funny and tragic life stories, a tropical island where 10 per cent of the islanders are colour-blind, an original view of Muslim women and their place in our society smash together in this thought provoking production.

Four performers with visual impairment invite you into their heads as their compelling life stories collide with the meteor of genetic science. With an exciting new score by acclaimed young composer Lloyd Coleman and extracts from Dr Oliver Sacks' brilliant book, The Island of the Colour-blind*, 21st Century Dinosaurs is an adventure in vision.

Think it's just going to be a bunch of disabled people moaning about the awfulness of their lot? Think again. Dinosaurs combines theatre and storytelling, music and video, light and sound in a show that will make you laugh, pierce your heart, stimulate your brain and finally see what it's really like not to see.
