Crying Deer was the collaboration of two Iranians and two Americans using voice, movement and music to explore love, pain and complex human relationship.
The script for Crying Deer was developed using a process called ‘devised drama’ whereby the story and characters were developed through a collaborative process. During the course of this work and through improvisation the story and characters were created and refined, and strong relationships were developed between the actors/characters.Crying Deer used very little dialog instead using movement and music to communicate. The production was heavily inspired by Grotowski’s concept of ‘poor theatre.’
