The Dolls of New Albion is a new work of musical theatre written and composed by Paul Shapera. The work was commissioned by Mark Swetz and Compañía Y for production in London and this video is a record of a workshop performance at the Ovalhouse.

This work was commissioned as part of Swetz’s PhD research on Blind Spectatorship.

Questions about this work can be directed to Swetz on
