We invited visually impaired people to experience The Corner Shop a performance at the Mander Shopping Centre. Background: In 2008, Black Country Touring collected memories, photographs and documents of shopkeepers, their families and customers of the shops in the Black Country, ranging from traditional English to South Asian to Iranian. Using this material as a starting point, Foursight Theatre & Black Country Touring created a new production working with a huge team of professionals and volunteers from the local community. The production was first performed in a disused shop in West Bromwich in 2008.
The Corner Shop was re mounted in October - November 2009 in a disused shop unit in the Mander Shopping Centre in Wolverhampton as part of Arts at The Centre, a festival of events in empty shops organised by Wolverhampton Arts & Museums Service. foursighttheatre.co.uk/The-Corner-Shop/
