For information on the impact Dialogue in the Dark has had worldwide visit

None more black:

”Dialogue in the Dark is one of the most extraordinary exhibitions I have attended. It is something that started in Hamburg and has been set up all round the world; a series of pitch-dark environments, where you have to rely on what you can hear and feel, and are guided by a blind guide.

There is of course a benefit to the guides – they are employed, and they are in a situation where they are empowered and the sighted people they guide are dis-empowered. But somehow there is a great benefit also to the people being guided. You have to focus absolutely on where you are, on taking the next step into the dark, on understanding the information your other senses are conveying to you. You have to rely completely on the kindness of a stranger. I was so relieved, and so sad, when the first bit of light showed at the end of the tour.

It puts things into perspective. My guide lives in Pretoria, and travels with his dog on Metrorail to Joburg!! I find Park Station quite intimidating as a sighted person; think about what it must be like if you can’t see.”
