My identity is intertwined with my disability. I was born with a rare cancer in my left eye called retinoblastoma. “Depth Deception” is about growing up with one real eye, one fake eye and the challenges that come with that. This dance recreates experiences I have on a daily basis through actions and memories that define how I view the world half blind. It follows my progress of owning my perspective, while the dancers with full vision begin to realize my differences and the contrast between seeing half blind and seeing with two eyes. “Depth Deception” takes the audience on a journey exploring different points of view. I am constantly challenging myself to discover all the possible ways in which my point of view limits yet enhances how I move half blind.
