Flying in the Dark is an autobiographical tale about living and thriving as a blind person in a sighted world. With humour, wit, a deeply felt sense of the ridiculous and considerable courage, Kim Kilpatrick guides her listeners through the experiences of a fiercely independent blind child. She shares her boundless enthusiasm for acquiring the skills she needs to be self-sufficient, chronicling the process of becoming an adult with potential new opening and new complexities revealed. Is there darkness? Yes, but it comes mainly from others: those who patronize her, who will not accept her competence. In response, she has created Flying in the Dark as a deep, funny, but gentle adventure. Through her show, she brings her audiences an evening of insight and entertainment.

Initiated by the Montreal Intercultural Storytelling Festival, this series is made possible with the support of the government of Canada through the Support of Workers in Live Arts and Music Sectors Fund.
