Understanding and appreciating art in the form of expressive movement for people with visual impairments is challenging. This chapter provides an account of the proof of concept choreo-haptic experiments that were carried out at the University of Edinburgh over a period of 18 months. The work explored the conceptual thought experiment and entanglement of expressive movement, haptic feedback and kinaesthetic empathy as a vehicle for expressive communication for children and adults with visual impairments.
